February - Introduce yourself!

If you're new to the boards and / or have been lurking for a while, please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about you so we can get to know you! No judgement here regardless of which group you would fall into (adopted / adopting / fostered / fostering / placed a child, etc).

  • Hi everyone. I frequent the TTGP boards every now and then but DH and I decided to go the route of domestic adoption for 2017/2018 -- depending how long it takes :). We have been TTC for over 2 years and our only option is IVF -- it's just not for us.

    DH and I have been looking into adoption through our foster care system in our province -- I'm hoping to hear back from them sometime next week to learn more. We were originally on a call back list for a private agency to attend a seminar in April, but I'm pulling more towards public adoption. I'm really excited and nervous to start this process.

  • @WitandWhimsy Welcome! I hope you hear back soon and can start the process of adoption! Just a tip - if you don't hear back soon, don't feel bad calling again. I had contacted multiple agencies and didn't hear anything back until I finally got the phone number of the person in charge at one of them. It was about a month of just trying to get contact.

  • Hi! I'm moving over from the infertility boards. We've been trying IVF for the better part of last year and were told in December that my AMH is 0 so we are going the adoption route. We've decided on a  private infant adoption through a local lawyer who specializes in adoption. I was lucky to find a wonderful counselor after my IVF failures who had basically had the same experience and decided on adoption too. She has been a wonderful resource! We won't be able to start the process until May because we just bought a house that we will close on in April and then will have a home study. I'm really excited!
