Adoption is overwhelming..the internet makes it even more so. I remember 20 years ago when we were doing our first adoption, our fertility MD gave us a name, we went there we signed up we had a baby. Today, there are so many professionals to choose from, so many different forms of adoption to consider. Everyone you know has a story to share. But you have to start somewhere. Make the calls, ask the questions and go with who you feel most comfortable. TRUST! One of the wonderful things about adoption vs fertility intervention is that in most circumstances when you remain open to the universe- it is 100 % sure that you will have a baby. It may not be in your time, it may not be the first or second situation you are hooked up with ..but when the time is right, you will be a parent!
