Anyone remember me? (adoption update)..
Tue, 08-12-2003 - 10:46am
I was a member of this board for a LONG time. Took 2 yrs to conceive my son, Michael, and then no success with #2 (2 miscarriages included). Finally, we turned to adoption. It's truly a miracle. We worked with an agency, our file became active in January, we were matched with a birthmom in May, and our son, Cameron John was born June 10! Everything is wonderful!

Adoption is truly a miracle!


PS: Any recommendations on what to do with unused GonalF?

Congratulations on your happy story. as to what to do with your meds, you might check out the IVF message board and ask if anyone would like it. I'm sure you'll have some takers!!

It's good to have happy news and to keep the good karma rolling!

OMG! Is there an icon for "truly blown away"? WOW, congratualtions, I do remember you, Your new son is beautiful (and shares a birthday with my 6 YO!) I don't know if you rmeber me, as I was a kind of fading out, when you were coming in. I had been posting here for a few years. I think I remember running into you on the adoption boards as well? I can't beleive how fast you were matched! Cameron looks just like your other son! Isn't God amazing? They are both beautiful!

We are in the midst of adopting from Russia. We struggled for so long to go int'l or domestic. I was very concerned about getting matched at our age, and with bio kids. Together we have 5. I know we did make the right decision, and am on cloud nine.

The best of luck to you and your lovely family. I'm so glad I decided to lurk tonight. Another member adopted as well. That post is on the other TTC over 40 board.

Best of luck, Lori
