We Got Matched!!! | Surprise Family Announcement | Adoption Journey [CC]


Jaks journey
Our journey to growing our family. [Music]
360 days ago we started this journey, we had no idea where it would lead us. Me: Oh, God. It’s so hard to look. I don’t want to. After losing this pregnancy, we kept going
with fertility treatments until… 6 months after our loss
Husband: I don’t know how to do this one. Me: It’s just the third line. Husband: There is. Unfortunately, we lost this pregnancy at 12
weeks. Me: Scan and she’s pressing really hard. Then she says she’s got to step out of the
room. And I close my eyes like three seconds because
I just wanted it to be a nightmare, but it’s not. After our second loss, we pursued IVF and
adoption. First day of IVF shots
Me: Alright, show myself the little screen, verify the dosage. 1, 2, poop. Alright, pinched my fat. This is a lot of fluid. 1, 2, 3, ouch, that hurt like a freak. Ouch, not as fun. Not as fun. Me: We have started the adoption process. In fact, in just a few days, we’re going to
have our first meeting with our case worker at the adoption agency we chose and I am just
thrilled to get this process kicked off and started. I am obviously overly excited. [Music]
Thanks to everyone that has joined us along the way for all the ups and downs. We feel the best way to repay your kindness
was to keep it a secret and then surprise the hell out of you! ๐Ÿ˜€ JAKS Family
