Default What would you do?

DH and I are in between a rock and a hard place as we call it. We have been TTC for almost two years. In June we decide to put the wheels in motion for adoption. Our homestudy and picture profile are complete. In November we found out that I have PCOS and so actually getting PG is more of a reality now with some help. However we are still wanting to follow through on the adoption process that we started (we have never seen adoption as a means to an end. its something we've always planned to do). But we have concerns about what will happen if we get pg during the adoption wait time. Then there is the question of handling two kids very close in age. DH thinks having two babies in the house would be wonderful (because of my mother's helper experiences, I know better). We really would like to do both, but what is the practical and logical thing to do? Should we just stick to our plan of starting the treatments in January and sending our adoption application in late March/early April? Help!

Wow, this is a tough decision, but I think only you and your dh can really make the call. There are probably plenty of pros and cons to both options. Big hugs to you and good luck in deciding which to do first. I wish you all the best on both endeavors!

I don't know what you should do, but if it was me I would
go ahead with my plans and believe that whatever happens
is good and right. That way I would not look back and regret
not doing anything. But that's just me.

the best to you,

If it were me, I'd probably continue on with could always adopt a child that is a couple of years old already if you are very concerned about the babies being too close in age. My brother adopted a 1 year old last year(from Korea)...this year he went back and adopted a 2 year both are the same age.

I'd go ahead with my plans for both and see what works out first and take it from there. That's what we did, and I ended up in a very different place than I thought I would be. We always wanted to adopt too, so either way I knew there would be a baby. If it turned out there were 2, then there were 2.
