Nuestra Historia / Our Story Part 3

Finalmente, aplicamos para adoptar con el gobierno y comenzamos a buscar nuestros documentos. Aún recuerdo que era diciembre, mes mágico para nosotros. En una semana conseguimos todos los documentos y nos dirigimos a entregarlos. Al llegar a la oficina la encargada de adopción nos indicó que antes de que se fuesen de vacaciones de Navidad ella iría a nuestro hogar a realizar la visita por lo que allí mismo obtuvimos la fecha. Ambos estabamos super emocionados y no podíamos creer lo rápido que iba todo. Definitivamente, habíamos acertado en esta decisión y estabamos felices. Luego de una semana de espera llegó el día de nuestra visita al hogar y todo salió maravillosamente así que el siguiente paso era esperar a que llegara nuestro hijo o hija. Pero, algo ocurrió que cambió nuestras vidas para siempre (calma sigan leyendo). Como dije anteriormente era el mes de diciembre lo que significaba que en mi trabajo estabamos dando exámenes finales y calculando promedios. De repente, la directora de mi escuela fue a buscarme a mi salón por que Pablo me estaba llamando. Obviamente, me asusté por que él nunca acostumbraba a llamar a mi trabajo. Tan pronto yo respondí al teléfono, él me dijo no te asustes no es nada malo al contrario tengo una buena noticia que darte. Es entonces cuando mi corazón comienza a tranquilizarse un poco cuando el me dice, ganamos una cantidad de dinero en la lotería. Nuevamente, yo no sabía si reír o llorar pero él me indicó que antes debía cerciorarse de que la información fuese cierta. Cerca de tres horas después (las más largas en mi vida) me llamó y me confirmó la información. Es así como ocurre un milagro en nuestras vidas y logramos conseguir el dinero para realizar la Fertilización In Vitro. Esa Navidad del 2005 será siempre recordada con mucho amor y felicidad.

Finally, we apply to adopt with the government agency and we started to look for our documents. I still remember that December, a magical month for us. In a week we got all the documents and we went to deliver them. Upon arriving at the office the person responsible for adoption indicated us that before the holidays she would go to our home to visit us so we set up the date. We were very excited and we could not believe how fast things were going. Finally, we were clear with this decision and we were happy. After a week the day of our visit arrived and all was perfect so the following step was to wait for the aarival of our son or daughter. But, something occurred that changed our lives for ever (calm down, keep reading). As I said previously, it was December which means that in my work we were giving final exams and calculating averages. Suddenly, the director of my school went to seek me to my room because Pablo was calling me. Obviously, I was scared because he was never accustomed to call me at work. So I quickly responded to the telephone, he told me not to be worried because it was no bad news to the contrary he had some good news to give me. After that my heart begins to calm down a little when the tells me, we won a quantity of money in the lottery. Again, I did not know if to laugh or to cry but he indicated me that before he should make sure that the information were certain. Near three hours later (the most long in my life) he called me and confirmed me the information. This is how the miracle in our lives happened and we manage to obtain the money for the In Vitro treatment. We will always remember that Christmas of 2005 with a lot of love and happiness.
