I've been married for 3 1/2 years. Before we got married, DH and I discussed having both biological and adopted children. Just before our 1 year anniversary, we were told we may never have children on our own due to severe endometriosis. We've been battling that disease ever since, but now that we feel we have it somewhat under our belts we are ready to adopt. Last week (after months of discussion) we made it 'official' with each other that we will spend the rest of this year researching the different methods of adoption. By January, we hope to have actually started the ball rolling on giving a child a home. I'll probably mostly lurk for now, as I've got a stack of books here to read and educate myself, but I can't wait to get to know all of you.
