I have wanted nothing more than to be a mother for as long as I can remember. I pictured in my mind what a little version of myself would look like, how he or she would act. I was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition a few years ago. When I was advised by my geneticist and OBGYN not to have biological children, I felt like my dreams were crashing down. My close friend who is growing her family through adoption recommended Creating a Family to me. It has been a wonderful resource to help heal and realize that my dreams are still fully alive. I catch myself wondering what my child will look like and how he or she will act. I look forward to giving the gift of adoption to my children in the future. Creating a family has helped me in tremendous ways.
