following this thread.  we have been trying to conceive for 9 months now.  given our ages, we knew are chances were slim.  he is 41, me 40.  we decided a month ago we wanted to pursue adoption.  we were all excited.  we went to the information/orientation meeting (required to get the application in the state of texas) and had our hopes crushed.  we have to be married for 2 years before we can even apply and start the process with the state.  it would be the end of 2015 before we would be “licensed” to adopt.  we were told how desprately they need families, but that we were not stable enough to be eligible.  heart breaking.  we are in our 40’s, own our home, have been at our jobs 18 & 13 years respectively, have a more than adquate combined gross income, live in a decent neighborhood in a school district hosting two of the best schools in the state and we are not stable enough…bah!    so your topic certainly caught my attention and want to follow.
