Sunday bloody Sunday

Started spotting today! Yippy! I'm ready for ol` Aunt Flow to get her ass her so I can start these damned BCP. (Updated-- AF is here in all her glory! C21 for me is officially here) Going of off this last FET looks like FET #2 will be around May 10th. Man that will be here before I know it! I do not have high hopes for it what so ever but I'm still ready for it to get here. I plan to TAB from June- Aug to save some money and figure out that we are going to do rather it be more IVF's or adoption. I'm looking forward to the break. Just to have the summer where I can lay out and swim and drink at some cookouts and have fun! Not being paranoid that I might be pregnant so I can't do anything. Hell I think I might to go ride some roller coasters too! Woot! Haven't been to a theme park forever! Tomorrow is Jake's 27th B-day! My 25th is Friday! Damn we are getting old. Hehe. Not really but it feels like it sometimes. We don't really have anything planned, probably just go out to dinner. Nothing big. Just another day. I need to get a movin` we rented a movie so I best get in there and watch it! Before I do I leave you w/a question...

~~If you were do adopt would you choose an Amercan child or one from another country? If from another country which one and why? What age would you choose, a newborn or an older child?

After looking into adoption here in the US I'd say to try to adopt in another country. At least look at all your options. If Josh and I ever do decide to adopt, since we still want to keep that open, we would do another country, possibly Russia. It's actually easier, just a bit more money but there aren't so many loop holes and issues there are here.

Hey Jayme! I chose to adopt a new born domestically. We chose domestic because a lot of international adoptions are older (toddlers and older children). We wanted a newborn.

Also, we wanted the security of being in the USA and not having to worry about a foreign language or a long out of country stay.

Good luck on your decision. Adoption is a long road too, but I think it will be worth it in the end. If you have any questions, just ask.

I just wanted to stop by and say "Hi"

Well it looks like you at least have some plans in order. I think I asked you this once but I can't remember, did you ask your RE what he's going to do differently with this FET? I haven't looked into adoption so I can't help you there. I know there's quite a few girls out there that did though. Hope you get some answers!

I know how you feel with the paranoia - I'm the same way. Just worry about having an enjoyable summer whether the FET works or not. Keeping everything crossed for ya. :)

I think it may be BETTER to adopt from another country since alot of countries have less than we do, but I think it would be alot EASIER to adopt in the U.S. I would definitly adopt a newborn or a very younge baby so when he/she growns up you are all they know as their parent, know what I mean?

I am secretly hoping this next FET cycle will make it so you don't get to drink all summer long!! ;-)

As far as adoption,if we did we would probably adopt from here in the US. There are so many kids out there, in our own country, that need good, loving homes (I have many adopted cousins) I'm not sure what age we would try for though. I'm torn between an infant and a grade schooler.

After meeting with our social worker about our choices (we just assumed that we would do domestic) our social worker asked us if we had considered international adoption. After A LOT of research on international adoption, agenices to work with (that one was truly the hardest one to research!)and speaking to other who had adopted, we decided to adopt from Guatemala. We decided that we wanted a child, male or female under the age of two. Gender wasn't an issue~we wanted a child who needed us.

We were very blessed (or maybe i should say lucky...) on how our adoption went. After submitting our dossier to our agency, to our suprised, we were matched with a baby girl. We just assumed (there's that word again, lol) that we would be matched with a child who was almost two years old. After talking and consulting with an IA doctor, we accepted the referral.

We submitted our dossier in March of '07 and we were home with little Emma in mid-July of '07. Our timeline wasn't the norm-many friends that i made online had a horrible wait time; in fact, one of my friends just brought their child home.

I speak Spanish (my Mom was Spanish) so travel was fine-but we were with our agency rep the entire time we were in Guatemala. Our agency truly took care of us and we have made some life long friends.

Age was a factor for us as my husband was 45 and i was 41. (We are an eharmony match...second marriage for both). Some countries have limits on age, income, how many children are in the family already...Guatemala didn't have these types of restrictions so it was a perfect fit for us.

Due to my age, we never really considered doing FET cycles. I think that at our age, well, we just wanted to be parents as we are first time parents. I just wanted to be a mother....

Emma is now 2 years old. She laughs like me, but looks like her birthmother. Emma and my husband are so funny to watch-they have truly bonded with each other. It is interesting watching her grow...she is truly the light of our life.

Dang, this is long. ;)

Hope it helps...if you have any questions just let me know and i'll try to point you in the right direction.
