pdate 6/3/14 - Rang the adoption team to ask for someone to come and see us, and a member of the team is coming on Monday 7th April at 10am. I asked the questions wether us not doing IVF will go against us or having a dog and he said he doesn't why it should!

Update 4/3/13 - well it's official, we have emailed the adoption agency and asked for someone to come and see us!! ARGH!!

So a bit about me. I'm 24 and DH is 26 and we have a little puppy and live in the uk. We have been married nearly 2 years and TTC nearly 2 years as well. We have found out DH has low morphology and to conceive we probably need IVF with ICSI. Well ....

So on Saturday night I had a breakdown moment and just started crying. I'm struggling to lose the 50lbs I need to, to get put on the IVF waiting list, and I honestly don't know if I ever will be able to. At this point I don't see it. There's no guarantee that once we have IVF it will work either, which scares me.

So, we are looking into adoption, as we agree now is the right time for us to have children but it isn't happening naturally, we feel adoption is the next step for us. We did consider fostering but DH doesn't feel comfortable with that he said he would rather adopt then have to keep saying bye to children. I do agree, but it also scares me how permanent adoption is. The next step is to get a social worker to come out and explain everything and then we apply. I deffo think we are gonna do this!! Ahh I'm so excited!! This time next year I could have a forever child!!

Any advice or experiences you ladies have had would be great to hear. I'm scared, but so so excited for this step. I feel we are making the right decision and for the first time in a while I feel at peace with everything.
