@LuluInLove:  Why did you choose adoption?

I have a friend who is adopting. She says she is “paper pregnant” which I think is super cute! 🙂

Not in the process of adopting but just thought I would extend my support! How exciting! I really hope everything goes smoothly for you!

Congratulations! Do you have any favorite informational resources on adoption of kiddos on the older range org your spectrum (Like, 3-6.) adoption very much appeals to me for similar reasons, and as I am not particularly fond of babies, have considered an older child (bonus, as it is apparantly not uncommon for couples to want only babies.)

I’m not at a stage where I’m ready to start, but it never hurts to research!

I would love to adopt at some point, maybe as a second baby. I would really love to adopt out of foster care, but honestly, I think DH and I are just not good candidates at all. We move relatively often and so much of the foster/older child adoption really requires the stability and committment not to make positive relationships with existing relatives any more strained. 

Adopting a baby/toddler would be amazing, but I think the financial constraints might be outside our financial means.

@LuluInLove: this may be a super intrusive question so feel free to not answer, but roughly how much is this costing you guys? I am extremely interested in adoption, but have read that it is insanely expensive. That you guys are close to our age gives me hope! I am asking purely as someone who wants to go down the same path , not to start drama…

We have talked about adoption someday. As an adoptee it definitely appeals to me. A great book to read is the Primal Wound. my adoptive mom says she wishes that book was around when her and my dad were going through the adoption process.

@LuluInLove:  How exciting! Adoption is something that me and DH want to do some day as well. I agree there isn’t many adoption boards on WB so I’d love to see more posts from you with updates!
