Why is it that when you mention your adopting  the trendy response seems to be that you’ll suddenly be cured of infertility and be pregnant even before the paper is sealed and delivered to your agency.  “As soon as you sign the papers and begin the process, you’ll see!”.. “It happened to a friend of mine, they decided to adopt and wham next thing she knew they were pregnant” “oh you’ll get pregnant next month now”.  If adoption did cure infertility, then we would all have started the process years ago and no child would ever be adopted because of infertility.    Only 6% of couples who begin the adoption process, get pregnant. I don’t think signing papers cures medical conditions.  We know you mean well, but instead of wishing upon us a pregnancy that will just end in heartache, wish us a happy healthy child to love, regardless of whos womb he came from.
