Default popping in to say hi

Hope everyone is doing well and spirits are up although it doesn't look like the baby dust fairy has been hanging out with the gang. For those who don't remember, I decided to take an undetermined leave of absence from TTC after January's devastating BFN. Since then, DH and I have begun the adoption process with the state. We have completed paperwork, the fire marshall is coming next week to inspect our house and we are waiting to hear from the social worker about begining our homestudy and we are taking a series of foster/adoption classes in May. I am not entirely happy with the prospect of becoming a parent this way, but it seems to be our best option at this point. I suppose, I am excited at the prospect of becoming a parent, but still sad that I won't get to be pregnant and experience birth...

It has been incredibly wonderful to not be on clomid/novarel/have ultrasounds/IUI's/deal with the 2ww...I do not miss any of that!

Hope everyone is happy and healthy...Alicia

HI FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been looking out for you and thinking of you sooooo much. I'm glad that the adoption process is moving along. Are you sure you are done ttc? It took me 7 IUIs this last time. YOu have gotten pg before. I gues you know when you are done and nobody can make that determination but you and DS. I'd love to see you do 1-2 more cycles but do what is right for you. I miss you and glad that you are doing okay!!
