waiting game.

Still nothing.

But... Heath got a new job on Friday! I'm so proud of him. We are both really excited. Not only does this new job mean no traveling for my hubs, it also comes with a pretty substantial pay raise. So substantial in fact, that we can now easily afford the monthly payment for IVF and actually be able to afford a baby (or two)! You may recall in my last post that I had been having some hesitation about trying for financing in a few months. Mainly because, while we could afford the payments, it would stretch us pretty thin. Now, we could make the payments and not even notice the large dent it would make in our pockets.

Isn't that amazing? I don't know why, but I'm always blown away each time God provides exactly what my heart desires. I had given up on the idea of doing IVF anytime in the near future. I was ready to put all of my eggs, so to speak, in the basket of adoption. I certainly wasn't expecting Heath to find a new job any time soon, or that it would mean a pay raise.

So, for now, we're just planning on trying to financing again in October. I'm not sure what we'll do if that turns out like it did last time - I can't let myself go there. But, at least we have something to look forward to in case this adoption doesn't work out. I still want and pray for that constantly, but I feel like the blow won't be quite as hard if we have a 'back-up' plan.

We're completely open to however God wants to bring a baby into our lives. Please keep praying that it will be revealed to us soon. Thank you.
