We have been on the infertility journal for almost 5 years and although we are getting closer to solving the mystery, I am not sure because of our age, we want to continue the FET and donor egg journey forever. So, we are looking into adoption. I have read up on it a bit over the last week and it seems so confusing and complicated; as if working with a clinic isn't bad enough.
How is the adoption process in Durham Region? Those who have adopted, was the process faster in private or public adoption? We are looking for a new born, however, if the new born had a brother or sister, that would be an option as well.
It looks you have to take training, do a homestudy which seems daunting.Any assistance navigating this next step in the journey would be fabulous.
