Well, you rarely go into surgery with the hopes that something will be wrong, but this time, we were praying and begging God that they would find something wrong and be able to fix it. We just wanted answers! Something to pinpoint all of this on and find a solution. Well, after 6 hours of waiting, and nearly 2 hours of surgery, we got the best news we've had this whole process! The doctor found endometriosis and was able to laser off any scar tissue that he found. He gave Mitch the update while I was in the recovery room. He told Mitch that after seeing and fixing what he saw, he believes that we will now be able to get pregnant WITHOUT IVF!! Obviously, this is only the opinion of one doctor, but we are bursting with joy at the thought that this could be the answer we've been looking for all along!! We still have one more blood test that we are waiting to get the results back for next week, but this is starting to look like a really good end to our year!
Although we have spent countless dollars on a procedure that may not have been necessary, we do look back at everything we've been through and know that we have learned and grown through it all. We know that every step we have taken has led us to our beautiful children, and I would go through it all again to be Maddox and Madeline's mommy. We are praying every day that God would allow us to give them siblings, through pregnancy and another adoption!
Also, I am praising God today for the village of people He has given us! I could not have made it through this week without our friends and family! We are surrounded by so many people that love us and our children. From grandparents, to aunts and uncles, to friends that are like aunts and uncles to our children. We are so blessed and thankful for every spend the night, every meal, every hand that helped in our garage, every hand that helped change a diaper and do my dishes while I am recovering from surgery!
Here's to 2016! If the blessings are anywhere close to what they were in 2015, I know we are in for an amazing year! And even better than that, we know that if it ends up being the worst year we've ever experienced, I know that God has prepared our hearts for the good times and the bad. He is our loving help in time of need, and joyful song in time of praise!!
