I was reading about local adoption in Australia today and I found that in 2010 there were only 55 local adoptions and of that 55 there was less than 5 adoptions of babies under 1. Overseas adoptions can take 5 or more years and cost thousands. I also read that in aus the mother gets a cooling off period of 30 days so they can change their mind.
I think that it is all too hard and I don't want to get off the ivf rollercoaster and onto the adoption one, I just can't take it.
Can anyone share their success stories with me?
