1.) When the going gets tough with infertility, the tough get going. But to where shall these proverbial tough people go? To the Lord! So our first goal is to increase the faith in our lives in order to cope with the suffering. We hope to do this by making prayer a priority by maintaining a consistent prayer life. We pray together and as individuals frequently. We just have to get the consistency down.
2.) Well, we are really original with our next one here - I want to lose weight and Ecce wants to get her body "toned" (because she is already at a beautifully, good weight). How often do you hear that one? Well, I am going to try and I figure I can do it! After all, I have been disciplined in other areas of my life. Why not with food? Why is food so hard? Perhaps the lack of motivation? Well, I am doing it this year for my fertility and for goal number three.
3.) Begin the adoption process! It seems like the stars are starting to align for adoption and some time this year we will begin the process. We have a tentative date in mind, but we aren't telling yet. Shhh! It's a secret. We will share more with you on this one as the months progress.
And oh you may ask what weight loss has to do with adoption? Good question. Well I want to be in shape whenever the little one that God has planned for us arrives. I mean I think to myself, "I have to live 18 years, at least, for this little one. I better get into shape or I'm not going to make it!" Yeah strange, I know. I am already hoping to stick around for awhile with Ecce! But for some reason when I think of a little one, it gets my butt in gear. So I'm calling my plan to lose weight this year: The Adoption Diet. Any ideas for a funny tagline that is motivational? I couldn't think of any.
