I guess sometimes you need to be presented with more than hypotheticals to really work out what you do and don't feel ready for.

DO you think part of it was the left-field aspect of the offer?

That would gobsmack me a bit too, but I'm always intrigued because it never happens here at all...

Wow. I'd be shocked by that too. How amazing.

Eva

Wow. That is weird. I'm glad that the universe posed that question to you and that you and your husband were able to come up with a clear answer. Clarity can be such a blessing. xo

Wow, indeed. I have a feeling I'd react with panic just because of the out-of-the-blueness of it all. Glad you and your husband had exactly the same reaction - that's got to feel good, knowing you're both reading from the same page!

Sitting here shaking my head. Wow. Just wow.

I think it is something that you know you can do. For us, we'd do it in a heartbeat, but we are already in the process of being cleared for fostering/adoption, and it is something we've wanted to do since we were first married. But it's better that you know what you are comfortable with and what you arent. Which doesnt mean it will always be the case. And I echo a previous poster, it is so good that you are on the same page with hubby.

I had a similar experience before we even began IVF. And it was the same feeling. We could have just cut to the chase and become parents. The b/m was about 6mos pregnant, but was resolute. But it wasn't even close to where we were.

I admit that after IVF#2, and 3 and 4 - I thought about that. And though that we could have saved ourselves years of heartache. But really - it would have been unfair to DH and myself, but most of all to that baby, to move on to adoption without feeling 100% comfortable in it.

If you're not there, you're not there. Someone is there now, and will make a great family for that little boy.

wow. i really don't know what i would have done, but i'm sure my husband would have reacted just like yours.
