Official Intro

I posted yesterday asking for blogs. I really appreciate everyone who shared with me. Today my husband and I discussed adoption again. We'd discussed it in the past but today I told him about a lot of research I've done and how I feel about moving on to fertility treatments vs adoption. I don't want TTC and fertility treatments to be out of our future forever, but I just can't see myself wanting to get pregnant for a month again. We have had four losses over our three year TTC journey.

So, our next step will be adoption. We're trying to build a house right now, so we won't be starting the process immediately but almost definitely by the end of the year. I hope you all don't mind me hanging out here and learning more about all of it.

Re: Official Intro

  • Welcome!

    I'm sorry for your losses. We had 3 over a 3-year period.

    FYI, some agencies allow you to pursue both avenues, if you're up to it.

    GL and post away!

  • Welcome! We only had one loss but I understand that feeling of being ready to move forward with adoption and leave TTC behind you for now. Welcome again!

  • I am sorry for your losses as well.  My husband and I are also looking into it.  We have had a total of 3 losses since 2010.  We are dabbling in it but right now he is working over I am just gathering research as well.  It sounds like our stories are similar and we may make great friends through this :)
