Wow, congratulations!  I’m sure this was a really big decision, but it sounds like a great new opportunity for your family.  πŸ™‚

I don’t have much advice, but there’s a couple adoption bloggers over on HelloBee; definitely check it out if you haven’t already!  Mrs. Jacks (aka Mrs. DG over here) did a private domestic adoption; Mrs. Cowgirl did a private international adoption (and is working on her second); and Mrs. Tutu is doing a domestic adoption (although she’s still doing paperwork, so she isn’t able to post to much about it until it’s finalized).  Good luck on this new journey!

Oh Stormy, I’m so excited for you!!! I know how long these last few years have been for you while I was going through a lot of the ttc with you and I’m so, so sorry that you didn’t have success. (Although, I still think you may get a BFP in the future!!!) But I can understand completely why you want to move on to adoption now. I’m so excited for you and support you 100%. You are going to be a MOM at the end of this process. YAY!! Finally! This will ALL be worth it in the end. I’m so, so, so happy and excited for you! I will support you along the way in any way that I can!! Big, big hugs and all the best to you!!

I’m glad to hear that you’re looking into adoption. As someone with a social work background, I am a huge advocate for it. Also – just a word of advice – there is a HUGE need for parents of babies who were given to the system at an older age, as well as non-caucasian children. So I’m ESPECIALLY a huge advocate of those kinds of adoptions πŸ™‚

Best of luck. Adoption is a really, really beautiful thing. I only wish more people realized that just because a child doesn’t have your DNA doesn’t make it any less “yours.” It’s truly my one hope for the future of society…that people will realize this.

Anyway, good luck πŸ™‚

@stormy9973:  I’ve followed your story since we started TTC 15 months ago, and I have always admired your positivity.  I’m so happy for you that you’ve decided to pursue adoption.  I have a girlfriend who adopted just over a year ago and she says that “getting to the other side” and becoming a Mom was so worth it after their 3 years of struggles and failed treatments.

All the best and please keep us updated!

I love adoption. It’s such a beautiful thing. But it can be a difficult road to walk. There’s paperwork, waiting, more paperwork, more waiting, and once you have that precious child in your home and a part of your family there can be behaviors to deal with that are less than desirable. I’m not saying this to discourage you. Just trying to be real. And for the record, even with the hard parts, I still think it’s a beautiful thing!

Just keep in mind there are lots of different kinds of adoptions. Some move faster than others, and some are more expensive than others. Do your research and figure out what is best for you.

… and BEST WISHES!!!
