This is definintely something I don't know the answer to and I have always been curious about it. All the books I've read say that prospective adoptive parents need to "deal with their infertility issues" before they should adopt. But I've never read anything that says how to go about this. (yes I know that not everyone that adopts is infertile)

Thanks anon, that does explain it, but what if you have trouble doing that? Are there books or classes that you can take? Is this something that adoption agencies talk about pre adoption?
MommyAddie and Keeley, I'm sure almost all amoms feel the way you do. I've also heard amoms say the same thing about failed adoptions one they get to adopt their child.

Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead anyone. I just assumed most of you know me. I'm a reunited birth mom of a 20 year old adoptee and am raising my twins. I've just always been curious because I'm always reading "deal with infertility issues first" but I've never seen a book advise how to do that. sorry for the confusion.
