Hello everyone,


I don't know if anyone here remembers me. I was active on this board last spring (March, April, May 2009), and hopefully everyone from that time period has moved on with BFPs. I'm Regan and dh is Matt. After our miserably failed IVF attempt last year my dh and I decided that adoption would be the way we would build our family. I am thrilled to announce that after waiting about a year we will be taking our son home for good this weekend! We are adopting "J" through the foster care system, and will finalize his adoption around Christmas time.


I know that everyone on this board will get to experience mommyhood one way or another, and i'm not going to lie it is the best thing ever! I never thought I would be one of those people who completely forgot about their infertility after adopting but I really have. I will never regret the IVF procedures that we tried. I needed it to work through the acceptance of my infertility, and have been an infinitely happier person for having done so. While our miracle came through adoption it is certainly not for everyone. However, if anyone has any questions about it please feel free to ask and I'll happily answer whatever I can.
