Learning Disabilities & physical handicaps
I feel the same way about the adoption process…or at least I know I will. I’ve started praying for the future birth-mother of our child-to-be. Whatever I am feeling must pale in comparison to her journey and it helps me to focus on this when I am frustrated by the red-tape and mountainous requirements placed upon adoptive parents.
Oh and I’m finding humor in my need to have another battery of STD and Aids tests. As a requirement for IVF treatments we were previously required to complete many of these tests and I’m sure my medical records show more (negative, thank-you very much) STD tests than a working girl in Reno.
