It was a mostly normal Friday night when my husband Tyler and I received the phone call that would change our lives.
That evening, we were going to give the invocation at our town’s Relay for Life event. I would be sharing a few words about how to cope when life doesn’t turn out the way you’d planned or expected (a subject that was about to get really real for me).
I was looking over my notes when the phone rang. The name on my caller ID showed that it was our adoption lawyer. My heart started beating a little faster as I answered the phone, wondering if this would be the call we’d been waiting for. The call that would be the first step toward becoming parents.
