Since Embryo Adoption isn’t very common, I thought I’d outline the general process for you guys. Our adoption agency, Nightlight, also does domestic and international adoptions. There aren’t a lot of laws regarding embryo adoptions, so they try to keep the embryo adoption process as close to a regular adoption as possible. The home study, education requirements, and matching process are all very similar to any other domestic adoption.
We’re going to tell you a little story, and Andy’s going to help (he’s pretty excited about it…)
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, ESV
This was our 2014. The year of extreme highs and extreme lows. We mourned, we waited, we prayed, we laughed, we rejoiced… and we did it all in one year.
Since I didn’t design a Christmas card this year, I was feeling the need to design something. Here’s an infographic look at what 2014 was like for the Kieklaks!
