Hi, I used to follow the TTCMA board and after a break would like to be on here. Not sure if you want all the background, but here you go.

My DH and I adopted in Aug 2007 through an agency after a lot of stressful IUI's and an endometriosis dx.

In 2007, I spent January and February digging through agencies and facilitators and interviewing them. By April, I had the home study started and the nursery done. We signed up with the agency in June, and went "live" August 17th. I got THE call on August 29, 2007 that we were chosen by a birth mom that had already been in labor 24 hours. YIKES!!! We were there when Connor was 3 hours old. We went from childless to parents in 8 hours....

After more infertility work-up (long grumpy story) we just did the application with the same agency again...and are waiting for a response. I hope I hear from them soon!!!!

Thanks for the welcome It was great to move so quickly with DS, but I think this time I will have to learn patience.

Of course! I'm more of a lurker here. My DH and I agree we will adopt at some point, we just can't agree on when yet. (I'm ready now, he wants to do more MA.)

Of course you're welcome! I hope you're able to adopt your next little one soon.

These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
