hey, since we're all new, i thought it'd be a good thing to let each other know who we are.
i am 32, my dh is 34. we've been trying to have a baby for at least two years. we were about to do IVF and it got delayed a couple of times. Then we went t an adoption seminar and decided that adoption was a better fit for us than IVF. The rest is history.
We are committed to an open adoption.
We are adopting through Catholic Social Services, which is a quasi public agency. They only work with infants.
We have said that we think a caucasian or hispanic infant fits with our family. (we live in the deep south, and NONE of my relatives are non-causasian). I am olive-skinned, so i think a hospanic baby could pass as ours.
We just decided that while we couldn't care less what the ancestry of our children is, we'd prefer that they not have a sign over their head that says "ADOPTION." Although, i am VERY torn about this, b.c i know at least ten families who adopted across race and couldn't not be happier nor have more well adjusted kids.
So, that's my story, what's your??
