My husband and I have been trying for 2 yrs to get pregnant and we have had NO luck what so ever... We are looking to adopt for our first child, and then work on conceiving our second, but we are not sure how to go about it. How long does the process takes and how much fees would be.. We are a Marine Corp family that just got stationed in New Orleans... Any advice would greatly be appreciated, links and etc....

If you want to know more about adoption through foster care, here is a link for your state. It varies state to state.
The nice thing about fostering and/or adopting through the state is the support system you gain from training , the mentoring from those who have done it longer (easing fears, giving hope), and the availability of resouces for the children. especially if they have special needs. It made all the difference to us when we adopted our son.
I agree with those who say that you need to work through your infertility issues before you adopt. Research, research, research & Good luck!
