Hello everyone. I see that some of you have also come to adoption through an IF journey, so I think this will be a good home for me too. We TTC for 3 years and at the beginning the plan was - 3 IUIs, 1 IVF, adoption. We just did our IVF and it was a big failure, so it looks like adoption is what is meant to be for us. My husband is adopted (DIA) and I've always thought maybe that's the path that is meant for us because he will have something extra/special that he can share with them. The failed IVF is still very raw for me, I just found out Thursday, but DH seems so at peace. He's sleeping like a baby!
He called a few agencies yesterday and I requested a packet from one. I've also downloaded a few books on adoption. Are there any great books you would recommend we read? How long after your IF journey did you wait before pursuing adoption? Was it hard to move on? I actually feel relieved right now. I'm so looking forward to sitting in the hot tub with husby and not having to drive 2 hours each way to the RE all the time.
