Hope-a gift or a curse

Like many of you facing infertility, I have read those stories about the miracle pregnancies. Those stories that encourage women to keep going with infertility treatments or try the alternative medicine, because you never know what is going to be the magical combination that gives you a baby. It has occurred to me that those stories are miracles, because they are not the norm. My infertility story may not have the happy ending with me getting pregnant. If I choose to adopt, after infertility treatments fail, I don't want my adopted child to feel like they were my back up plan. I am not sure how to make that happen. I am hoping by writing this blog, I can find peace with whatever happens in the future.

  1. I feel the same way. I started asking around about adoption and getting information so I am parallel pathing infertility and adoption. Before I knew i had a dusty uterus I said I always wanted to adopt. I really do want to, it's just a matter of finding the agencies, doing the research, etc, etc. A bit more involved than the 'traditional' ways!
