You can't go through LDS Family Services for international adoption? I thought you could.

I know several of us are thinkng about adoption (you, me, Mel mentioned adoption, and I seem to remember Aubri mentionint it once, but I could be wrong about that so if you know for certain somebody correct me!) so I thought it might be able to help somebody.

They stopped doing international adoption this year. I don't know why, but I called and that is what they told me. I think that it is pretty cool that so many of us are considering adoption.

They must have just stopped it, I wonder why. hmm anyway I agree Rachel, it's awesome that so many of us are considering adoption.

I'm still working on Matt, he's not too thrilled about the idea. Since we can have our own biological children, he doesn't see the point.

I hope you'e able to convince him! my adoptive parents were able to have children and they still adopted me so there are couples who adopt even though they can biologically have children.

RJ, that's MY argument. But maybe when we're done having our own kids and the time is right he'll be more willing to consider it.

Brittanie, I am not even trying to TTC before adopting. My M/C was because of a progesterone deficiency so I am almost positive that I will be able to conceive a child.

Adoption is wonderful.

You go girls! My dh has actually been the one to mention adoption to me. We are no place right now to consider it, but we may at some point.

I'd never thought of it before Rachel, though if my body sucks bad enough (quite plausibly) it may be the only way I ever have children.

I guess we'll find out...someday...

I adopted two children for the State of Arizona Foster care system. Then Heavenly father has blessed me with two healthy boring pregnancies, then three Angels in heaven and the baby I am curently carrying. So much for infertility.
