Hi, everyone. I'm (newly) active over on the TTC boards. But I thought I'd stop by here because adoption is an issue near and dear to me. Not only am I adopted, but DH and I hope to foster sometime in the future.

I looked through a few pages of posts and didn't see a topic like this, so I thought I'd offer: if any of you have any questions for an adopted child, please ask and I'll try to answer as honestly as possible.

The basics: I was given up for adoption at birth, though because of Ohio's adoption laws I was placed with a foster family for about two months. I'm 32 now, and I've never met my birth parents.

Ditto that.

I'm also an adult adoptee & and would be willing to answer any questions anyone might have.

I was also adopted at birth, but I have been reunited with my birth parents. I actually just relocated in December to be closer to my birth mom and her other children.

Hi Girls,

My fiance and I are having a hard time having a baby of our own mainly due to my age (I am 41). We really want to have a child together and have talked a lot about adoption over the past 6 months. Even if we do get pregnant we still want to adopt a child and it doesn't have to be a newborn.

Sorry if this is too personal but did you always feel loved? How old were you when you found out you were adopted? when you did, did you feel differently towards your parents?

Thanks
