Can we do a roll call?

I know I'm not a guide in this forum, but I was just curious how many people lurk around in this forum and hopefully getting to know whichever girls are around in here?

So please feel free to copy and paste this and only answer what you are comfortable answering of course

Name/SO's Name
How long have you been together?
What are you attempting (domestic adoption, international adoption, state waiting adoption, foster to adopt, foster parent, etc)?
Where are you in the adoption/foster care process (thinking about it, started the process, getting matched, etc)?
Anything else you want to share?

Name/SO's Name Chelsie/Eric
How long have you been together? 2 1/2 years, married 2 months
What are you attempting (domestic adoption, international adoption, state waiting adoption, foster to adopt, foster parent, etc)? leaning towards domestic infant adoption
Where are you in the adoption/foster care process (thinking about it, started the process, getting matched, etc)? We are going to attempt one more fertility treatment (gonadotropin with IUI, and if that doesn't work we will definitely be adopting. Planning to contact the agency we want to go through in March to get the process started since we are moving into a new house around April.
Anything else you want to share? I live with my husband and our two dogs and I have a stepdaughter here part time also. I love my family to death, and after a year and a half of trying to conceive and all the uncertainty of "is this treatment going to work, is it worth the money," we are very much looking forward to moving to the adoption process. It will be nice to leave all the stress of trying to conceive behind and finally know that we will get our little one to complete our family soon.

Oh man! I didn't even look up at the top to see if there was a guide. I know this forum is known for being a ghost town, so I just assumed there was not. I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to overstep my place by posting that

What are you attempting? We're still deciding, but most likely a domestic adoption.
Where are you in the adoption/foster care process: We've moved past just the thinking part. We know we want to adopt. We're just mostly waiting on the right time. We want to own a larger home. We do have a 5 year goal set.
Anything else you want to share? I love watching adoptions unfold. My husband was adopted at birth and it's something super special to the both of us.

We've been married for 20 years.

What are you attempting (domestic adoption, international adoption, state waiting adoption, foster to adopt, foster parent, etc)?
We are the parents of two children, both adopted from overseas.


Anything else you want to share?
Adoption was a long and emotional process for us, spanning about four years total, but it was so worth it in the end. It's not over after the adoption is legally finalized. Adoption can mean a lifetime of challenges and surprises.
