Let's Celebrate!

It has been a long wait for
Lisa and Adam, but today, finally, they brought their son, Jayden, home from the hospital. So many of us have been following their journey online, we thought it only fitting we throw a baby shower of sorts to welcome the new addition!

So, let's celebrate!

A symbol of hope

First and foremost, please forgive the delay in this post. This is LONG overdue!

As you know, I have been following your story (not to make you sound like a soap opera but that's the best way to put it) for awhile now. I've read about the disapointments, the moments of frustration, the sadness and the close calls. Throughout it all, the one thing you've always held on to, is hope. No matter what, no matter the wait, no matter how many times you were set back, you kept getting back in there and fighting the good fight. You updated your profile, you vented, you tweeted, you blogged and most importantly, you didn't lose faith that things would work out.

And work out they did.

Often in the game of trying to be a mother, feelings of jealousy can understandably arise. However, when I think of your journey, I don't feel resentment and envy, I feel inspired. Jayden's arrival and sharing your joy these last few weeks have offered such hope to those who continue to dream. Please know that we celebrate along with you and you will always be special in our hearts.

I wish you and your family nothing but the best. You are a thoughtful, kind and supportive person and I'm grateful to know that a special little boy has been assigned a special mom like you.


  1. Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me. It was such a long hard road. If I can make it through infertility hell to motherhood, any of you can. Hell, I don't even have a uterus anymore, haha. I have so much hope for you. I will always be on Team Jay. You are going to be an amazing mother. Smart, funny, and caring. I am so thankful to have you as a friend.

  2. Um.... I second that. Jay said it so well - I can't do any better. I would only add that your joy helped me get through my hospital stay and served as a reminder to me of why we all do this - why we put ourselves through the pain trying to achieve that joy. Your joy lessens my sadness so please bask in it, Lisa. :-)

  3. I am new to following Lisa and some of you. I forgot how Lisa and I "met" if it was through a search on adoption or simply just following one of her friends, but I wanted to say Congratulations to Lisa and I am glad for her and her husband.
