Deciding what path to take when you’re in the midst of infertility is sort of like walking into a casino, and pouring $20,000 (or more) into one of four or five slot machines and hoping you picked the right one.
All of the choices are expensive.
All of the choices are a huge gamble.
All of the choices entail you and your partner being evaluated, questioned, and put under a microscope. Sometimes literally.
All of the choices can lead to heartbreak, disappointment, and loss.
All of the choices involve a leap of faith.
I am proud, terrified, ecstatic, nervous, and hopefully announcing that we are leaping.
When we get back from our cross country trip and find jobs, we will be pursuing domestic infant adoption.
Cross your fingers and hold on tight, because you know you are all coming along for the ride.
