Becoming a Host Mom
We decided to host a foreign exchange student and become a host mom and host dad. During our infertility journey, I thought we had explored every possible option to have a child. And in a way, we did. We explored how to have a child of our own through infertility treatments like IUI, mini-IVF, IVF, & sperm donors or adoption, whether that be domestic, international, through child services, or embryo.
The one option we never considered is fostering. We had a kitten for two days once that we had to find a home for and I ugly cried when we gave that kitty away. So, I couldn’t imagine giving a baby back after falling in love with a little.
But, hosting a foreign exchange student never even crossed our minds….
