Re: Jodyc: approx. cost of adoption!

Thank you so much for your lengthy response. My DH and I are still a couple years away from adoption (we are only doing timed intercourse now, and then IUI in March, and then IVF if that doesn't work - but not until probably 18 months from now once we've saved enough money to try. I am shocked that an adoption costs so much money. It always seemed to me like there were always women out there that were too young, or didn't feel they had enough money to support the baby. I didn't figure the birth mother would actually get money, but I suppose it makes sense. You want to make sure that the mother is eating properly and stays healthy. Anyway, best wishes to you. I feel your pain in your response. I will pray for the best for you and your DH.
