Default just venting

No one can really help me with this, it's something Bryan and I have to decide, but I just want to vent how hard choices can be!!!

We are really looking into different fertility treatments regarding cost sharing, donors, as well as looking into and interviewing adoption agencies. We met a wonderful agency, that seems to fit our need perfectly, but Bryan is very worried about the costs and the roller coaster ride adoption does bring.

We need to decide, so are praying, and searching our hearts for which way to grow our family. After 9 years I never thought we would have to make such hard choices, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

The stress of the choice is really hard on me. I'm having such a hard time sleeping. I lay on the sofa till 3 am, get up at 9 and feel like a zombie most the day. My back aches, shoulders are killing me, and just feel stressed. I can't wait for this choice to become clear so we can look foward to whatever is next and know we are doing the right next step for us.

I know prayer works. We agreed a long time ago to have children naturally and to adopt. Since we're having a little trouble naturally right now we have decided to proceed with adoption and to let God take it from there. In fact I mailed the papers to get our home study done today. Good luck. I'll keep you in my prayers....
