What to do to start the process of adopting?

My husband and I have been TTC for over a year now and with the issues we have going on with my body, we are getting discouraged and were wanting to start looking into adopting. I am scared and not sure how to even go about starting the process of everything. If anyone has any helpful tips I would be very thankful for them.

  • Depends on what kind of adoption you are interested in. Foreign or domestic? Open or Closed? Infant or child? Single or sibling group? Through foster or through an agency? Read up on all the pros and cons of each and then go from there..
