    I’ve been putting off writing this blog post for weeks. I’ve had so many questions about our process in adopting Jayce and the moments between being matched and bringing him home from the hospital. Although the day Jayce was born was one of the happiest days of my life, it also came with a lot of unwanted fear, anxiety and…
