Just popping on to say Hi! I'm Arpita! Hubby and I are deciding to move towards adoption after a 4 years TTC, and a failed IVF. We're thinking MCFD, but paying for our own home study so things move along a little faster. We're going to move to adoption instead, and are feeling really good about getting that process started. A little overwhelmed, but still really excited!!

A little overwhelmed, and again feeling like we're starting from scratch and researching everything all over again. But feeling really positive that this is the path that will bring us our family. :)

Anyone else in Victoria? Would love to meet up with other couples/ women in the area that are or have adopted.

Me: 30. Stage 4 Endo. Possible DOR. Uterus Bicornis Bicolis.
Hubby: 29.  Olympian Swimmers

Together since Oct 2004
Engaged & Ditched the pill - August 2007
Married & Actively TTC since August 2008


IVF #1, and #2 were a bust.  Details under my "About Me". 


IVF#3 -  Using Donor eggs.  Horrible experiences looking for donors in Canada.  Moving to DE abroad, and SO pleased with what we are seeing.  DE cycle April 2014.

BFN.Nov 2011- Pursuing private adoption through Christian Adoption Services.May 2012- Officially on the waiting list for CAS.See "About Me" page for specifics on our journey and continued updates.Believing that God WILL answer our prayers for children! He is the one who placed the desire for children in our hearts so we trust that it will happen.... in His time. The message that keeps coming is from Psalm 37:7 "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him". December 2013- God has answered our prayers in a way we truly didn't think was possible- we brought home a little boy and survived the 10-day waiting period, lol. To Him be the glory- the testimony of this little one is amazing!
