Adoption

I have been thinking more and more about adoption lately. I tossed around the idea after our first loss, thinking I couldn't go through that pain again and maybe we should look into adoption. But we decided to try again. Another loss. Adoption came back near the front of my thoughts. Time passed and I said we would try one more time before seriously looking into adoption. Maybe it's because I'm feeling hopeless about actually carrying a baby to term but for whatever reason, I have started researching adoption. I figure it wouldn't hurt to know more about it and maybe after doing more research we'd realize it's not for us. So far, I have found a couple helpful sites. I now know the different types of adoption and their approximate costs. I definitely think it is something that Dan and I will need to discuss in detail and come to a decision on our own and I am perfectly aware that this could take quite a while. We have decided that we will try to have a baby on our own at least one more time. If it ends in another miscarriage, then we will reconvene and discuss adoption more seriously.

Any thoughts on adoption? Have you every considered it? Have any of you adopted? I would love to hear some feedback. I am feeling a little overwhelmed by it all right now and we haven't even made and decisions.
