In this season of miracles, from the hidden ones in the Purim story to the splashy ones in the Passover story, we want to thank all of you for your support of our efforts to expand our family and your belief in modern medicine. As our efforts to reproduce using fertility treatment failed, many of you tried to encourage us with stories of miraculous conceptions, which we downplayed and dismissed as we embarked on our journey toward adoption. But, as a rabbinical student, I should have known better. Miracles happen all the time. And G-d clearly has a plan. So, while we have learned a lot from the process of trying to adopt, we are thrilled to be one of those families to be granted a different miracle instead. Suzanne is pregnant, and is due in early October, right around Sukkot and Meital's birthday!
With love and blessings,
Suzanne, Marcus, and Meital
p.s.We're thrilled that Meital already likes giving the baby kisses and hope that continues!
