Transcription: 
When my husband and I were first married, we knew right away we wanted kids and started that route. And when it wasn’t happening naturally, we looked into – I was actually working in the infertility field – so we started going through the infertility process and had several failed cycles. And during that time, we became involved with a support group to help us through the process and getting advice on what to do in terms of experiencing the grief and a loss of not having a biological child. And ultimately, we decided that through the help of therapist and being in the support group, we decided to pursue adoption, because we really wanted to be parents and that was our ultimate goal. So at that point, we made the decision that that’s how we were going to build our family.
