You are all so sweet
I miss everyone too but since I'm not going through this daily anymore it's too hard to relive it everyday. But I promise I will continue to check in with you all from time to time. I can't wait until we are all mommies some day!
Deluka, I'm so happy to hear from you. That's great that you are going to become foster parents and maybe adopt too. I understand still trying IVF too. I have some frozen embies left and we will do a FET at some point -probably Fall 2008 after we have our first one home. Sending you HUGE hugs back
Mapia, I know, I've had no drugs since May and now I am starting to feel like a normal person again. I can't believe you are leaving in 2 weeks. That is such an exciting 2ww!
And a new RE appointment at the end of the month. I can't wait to here all the good news from you soon. As for our adoption, yes, she is already born but we don't know who she is yet (we requested a girl). At time of referral she will be about 1 year old so if we get a referral around January or so then she is probably about 7 months old now. Isn't that crazy to think my little angel is out there but we just haven't found each other yet! Our agency is here in MA where we live but they do many international adoptions from all over the world every year. I can't wait to hear all about your new adventures in Greece. Keep us posted!
Aimee, Yes, I guess we will both be mommies around the same time. I can't belive it is finally here either but this will be the best Spring of both our lives!
Princess, Thanks for such a sweet note. Adoption is a wonderful thing and I always wanted to adopt as well, I just figured I'd have a bio child first but we tried our best and I'm okay that it worked out this way. When you are ready you start by hiring an adoption agency and then they will walk you through the whole thing. It's a lot of paperwork but it's exciting. Good luck on your path to motherhood.
Holly, I'll definately keep you all posted from time to time. I'm sure when I bring her home I'll be wanting to brag to everyone
Kari, Good to hear from you too. My DH orginally wanted to wait to adopt for our second one too and that's why I continued with IF treatments even when I was all set with them. I had to make sure he was ready too and now he is and I can say it was worth the wait to now see him so excited talking about our future daughter and wondering what she'll be like
If you wanted you can do both at the same time. We were originally thinking we'd do FET while we were starting our adoption paperwork but now we've changed our minds and decided to wait until after we bring our little girl home. I can honestly say I don't care about getting pregnant at this point although I'd like to try again in the future. I say have the conversation with DH and do whatever you both think is best for your situation. There are no right or wrongs with this stuff. But please do keep your hopes up. I never thought I'd get over my devestation after my failed IVF and I can say now I am happier than I've been in years. I'm excited about being a mother in about 9 months - I am considering this time my "pregnancy", except I can lose some weight, drink, party it up and enjoy my last few months of no responsibilities
Even when I don't get on this board too often know I think of you all often and pray we all find our ways to motherhood soon. Baby dust!
