Boris and I have always wanted to have children when we first got married in 2010. God blessed us with Bailey in 2012. Boris always wanted children but thought it was not possible from due to a war injury. So we decided Bailey's middle name would be Anaya "God Answered". As time progressed Boris and I wanted to have another child and we tried for several years however it was not to be. In 2016 we found out that I was pregnant and miscarried a baby girl in my 2nd trimester. This was devasting to both Boris and I. Boris and I continued to try to conceive but with my advanced age I knew time was not on our side. Then one night in February God came to me in a dream and said my body was tired of all the infertility treatments and drugs and He had other plans. The next morning I talked to Boris about adoption and he was not on board at all. He wanted another child but was not open to adoption. So I continued to pray and ask God to work on Boris. I am researching adoptions as a possibility during this time as well. After a few years I started to have menstrual cramps and I had to seek relief from my doctor who tell me that I have a cyst the size of a navel orange on my ovary. My healthcare provider advices that I need to have the cyst removed. I am in so much pain that I could not take care Bailey and she would tell me "If you are going to be sick today I want to go to granny's house" this hurt my heart I would cry month after month. So the procedure was scheduled and during the operation unbeknownst to the surgeon I was diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis and had to have a total hysterectomy. Immediately after the procedure Boris told me he was ready to proceed with adoption and providing a loving and stable home to a child.
Boris and I are not perfect but we do have the love of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit in our heart and home. We want to provide that to our future son or daughter. When God blesses our family with a child we will love he/she as though we birthed this child into the world. It takes special people to adopt a child and with God's help we are ready to love unconditionally.
