Waiting to Adopt
Find a Conversation

I have lurked on and off for a few months, but when I posted yesterday about a topic I was warmly encouraged to post an intro.
DH and I have been together for 9 years and married for 5. He is a lymphoma survivor, so the doctors said his fertility would be limited. We agreed when we got married that we would not use birth control and just see what happened and when the time was right we would adopt. We have no intention of pursuing any fertility intervention.
I've been ready to move forward with adoption for a couple of years, but DH is working on a Ph.D. part time while working full time. There have been times where I have been very restless about waiting, but I know it's the right thing to do. I've been feeling like he's making progress in his life/future and I'm just in a holding pattern. But just a few days ago I got a new job where I will be traveling quite a bit all around the world. So, now I feel like I have something to fulfill myself in the remaining 3 years of his degree.
So hopefully I will be posting from exotic locales in the near future. ;)
