I was not oppsed to adoption however becuase of my age, 43, I felt it would be difficult to be "picked" by someone. I felt like adoption has it's own set of heartbreaks and waiting that I wasn't willing to subject myself too. With TTCMA I felt like having a child was more in my hands then waiting on someone to pick us while going through a book of peole that want kids. Both avenues have heartbreak and I was used the the TTCMA heartbreak and just wasn't sure if I could adjust to a new kind of heartbreak. If I would have been younger I wouldn't have hesitated to adopt but since DH wasn't ready to start trying for babies until I was 40 adoption just felt difficult to me. DH wanted to try for his bio kids first before he would entertain the thought of adoption. Thankfully our first and only attempt at DE/IVF worked for us.
Wishing you all the best!
