Adoption Or One More Round Of Injections

2 Replies
Maren - November 1

My husband and I just had 2 rounds of unsuccessful injectable medications where things had looked good but just not worked out. We have been trying for almost 3 years and have unexplained infertility. We needed to take off 6months until we could get some flexible spending and I have been thinking do we want to do this again? Or, should we go strait to adoption? I don't want to go to invitro as I think it is too expensive for us, I would rather adopt if it got to that point. I teach at a great school that supports a great deal of diversity and think raising an adoptive child there would be wonderful but also I am torn between that and the chance of having a biological child. I have been going back and forth for months and want to know if anyone else has had sucess on the 3rd round of injectibles? Did the need to have a biological child subside after adopting? Please I would love any advice. Thanks!

it depends soley on u. u can love an adopted child just as much as a biological child....but I wouldn't know if ur want for a bio child would subside...that really depends on how important it is to u to have "ur own" child.I dealt with infertility for 5 years...and did fostercare and looked into adoption ...we got really close to adoption.... but it can be a roller coaster of depends on how strong u r emotonally.... I am not saying don't adopt by no means am I saying that....just be prepared b/c it can be heartbreakin at times...but this is how I see it...there are hundreds of children already here that need a home and a family to love them...if u can give a child that then why not? gl

I have 2 adopted children and I went through the injections also. I finally told myself, do I want to be pregnant or do I want to be a parent. I understand the need for the biological child thing, but I promise, it dosen't mean a thing when you have YOUR child. I was in the delivery room with my 2 boys. Ages 9 and 3. It was a wonderful experince. I just put it all in God's hands and prayed ALOT. Maybe if adoption is on your mind that is what is meant to be. God bless you and hope things work out! Lori T
