Adoption

intro...hello

hey everyone!! I have been lerking for about a week now and thought I should do a intro finally. me and my DH have been TTC for almost 3 yrs now and have decided to do adoption. I have a weird disorder where it makes it hard to carry a baby so adoption is our best option to start a family.
I was adopted when I was 12 though a DCFS in Illinois so that is the agency we are going though. it is a state funded foster care and adoption agency. any insight you have for me please pass it on this is all new for me and DH (it's different for me to be on the other end of this) thanks :)

  • Welcome!  I'm also an adult adoptee, but mine was a private adoption.  It is different being on the other end!  My DH and I are in the process of FTA in Wisconsin, but I have a friend doing FTA in Cook County if you ever want me to ask her anything.
