JenniferMae: Our Journey for Baby

"The best part of TTC is the excitement I get at the possibility of us being parents..."
Ryan and I met when I was a student teacher at the school he taught at. I was home sick one day and decided to "go for it" and I emailed Ryan asking him out for drinks as friends (since his relationship status was still a mystery). He emailed me back and agreed to go out that night. After our first date, we were inseparable. After two months we decided to move in together and get another dog, Elloise. I already had one dog, Agnes. About a month after that he asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes. We were still working at the same school so we had to keep our relationship and the engagement a secret from all of his work friends. We were married about 18 months later on July 12.
We knew that we wanted to start having kids right away and I went off the pill about six months before the wedding, but we didn't start actively trying until two months ago.
The best part of TTC is the excitement I get at the possibility of us being parents. And also the little notes and emails that Ryan sends me with "soon-to-be-mommy" written on them. The worst part is the not knowing when and if it will happen. We plan on being foster parents relatively soon and we will eventually adopt at least one child but we would love to have our own children and hopefully we will be blessed with one soon.
I can't wait to see those awesome two pink lines and then everything that follows: Seeing the heart beat for the first time, feeling my baby kick, meeting him or her when they are born, the awesome baby smell that they all have and of course watching them grow and learn. Now I am all teary eyed just thinking about it.
