Now that Brian and I know that we are not going to be having any more children through embryo adoption, we cannot help but think what is going to happen to the remaining embryos. We know they will be adopted by another loving couple, but it does not make it any easier to say goodbye. These feelings that we are going through may have been the same for other couples who decide to donate their embryos.
Some of our thoughts are will our relationship with the Cassidy family change once another family is involved as well? We are like the first child who will one day have to realize that the world does not revolve around them when a second child comes into the family. When will that day come? Even though part of us wants the Cassidy family to ourselves we know that another family will just bring more love to our lives. We are praying for the next family who adopts the Cassidy embryos and who knows, you may be reading this right now!
Julian and Natalie are the most precious children in the world to me and I know whoever the next family is will be immensely blessed as we have been. Some gifts in life just keep on giving. This is one gift that I am now happy to say I will have a small part in giving to another infertile couple who has longed for a family just like Brian and I did for so many years. Thanks be to God for embryo adoption/donation and for giving me the opportunity to be a part of both aspects of this process.
