    Girls, I know this isn't a very active thread.. But incase anyone pops in here again soon..

    I'd like to know what people's opinions are of how it would be viewed if you still had frozen embryos & were applying for adoption?

    My situation is that we do have a frozen embryo, but I have severe problems with my uterine lining & so will probably never be in a position to transfer that embryo. I'm slowly but surely giving up on my own body & am becoming more & more certain that adoption is the best path for us. But for ethical, & moral reasons I'm not prepared to actually just destroy that embryo. It goes against everything I believe in. I think after 5 years frozen you have to apply thru a special process if u wanted to keep Embryos frozen even longer, so I'd rather wait till we no longer have a realistic choice & then make that decision to let it go because there aren't any more options left.

    But I feel like that will be looked upon negatively? Anyone who's done IVF before adoption able to comment or give your opinion?

I've tried googling how to adopt out a baby but all I'm getting is how to adopt a baby. How do I start the process of adopting out? Thank you for reading this.

    Default 2017 info dates

    Hi ladies,
    Tomorrow I am contacting our local agency to register for the info sessions, although I was wondering if anyone has the dates yet for 2017? The DHS website has not put them up yet. I am also based in the Mallee region, very willing to travel if need be for the sessions etc, has anyone from this region been through the local adoption process?
    Thank you

    Hi there everyone, Happy New Year to you all (can I still say that when its already 16 days old?!)- I love the possibilities that a fresh New Year brings!! Hope you all get to fill 2017 with more love, kindness, dream chasing and laughter than ever before!!

    I'm new to posting here, but will admit that I have read this thread from start to finish on more than one occasion over the past 12-18months.

    Its nice to be reminded of all the stories of those who have gone before you, that many of the worries and anxieties in this process are common place, and its so uplifting to read stories of success and joy after some very long waits and speed humps along the way

    There seem to be many veterans on here, and some other newbies like me popping in and out...

    I'm in Regional Vic... DH and I started our adoption/pc journey early last year, I think it was the end of March 2016 when I first made our enquiry to our local office by phone.
    We have completed all the info and training sessions (for both Local Infant Adoption and Permanent Care), and had confirmation that our application was received and completed in full late November 2016 - I think we have been extremely lucky in this process so far in regards to getting in to the training sessions etc in a pretty quick time frame. Our local agency emailed late November to say they will be back in touch in January to assign us our Case Worker... so so exciting!!

    But geez... the anticipation, this past week in particular, is killing me - everyday I'm excited to think about receiving the call to kick off these interviews so we can get to the end of this process, be approved and have our names on that database - EEKK!!

    Imagine what a nightmare I'll be once that's done, and I'm actually waiting for the big call - the main prize - Parent in Waiting no longer!!?? Ha ha Ha

    So... perhaps there are a few more 'read-onlys' out there that I can prompt in to jumping on for a convo, and I look forward to hearing from the veterans of this thread when you pop in next for a chat

    Hi Maeve and welcome, I am a very lucky adoptive parent from Vic to a gorgeous 3 year old boy and I know too well the feeling of excitement you get with getting to each stage. It's so exciting so enjoy it and know that you're not far away from interviews and getting approved and onto the list to be matched! My hubby and I were approved again in July 2016 so we have been waiting almost 6 months for a match, we waited almost 5 months to be matched with our son. We were told this time it could take longer but its no easier, every day waiting for the phone to ring!! I hope your phone rings very soon with a social worker ready to start your interviews. Good Luck and keep us posted 😀
