Not Everyone Who Wants To Be A Parent, Get's To Be A Parent

One of the things I love about blogging are the connections I've made.  I have friendships with people who I would never have met, if not for our blogs.  Blogging also gives me an opportunity to give a voice to other people in my life, mostly race recaps in the form of guest posts.

I'm going to switch from my usual blogging topics, and give the floor to my dear friend S:

My husband and I have been struggling with infertility for about 5 years now. I have done 11 IVF procedures and we still do not have a child. 

IVF is no longer an option since I have tried so many times. I have wanted to be a mom my whole life and the recent bad news has left me devastated. Our only real hope now would be a private adoption since we spent so much on all of our procedures. 

I will make a great mother if given the chance. I am a teacher and my husband is a Senior Specialist of Learning and Development at Global Foundries. We have a nice home and are able to provide a loving and stable environment. I have never wanted anything more than this. 

 If you know anyone in a situation where that person is looking into giving their child up for adoption, could you please keep me in mind? I am willing to answer any questions.

This is really our last hope. 

If you would like to contact S, please send me an email.

My thoughts are with them. My sister is in the same predicament - has been trying and unsuccessful for 8+ years (IVF, egg donation, surrogate, you name it, they've tried it). They are now trying to be matched for adoption and it's a long process. Sending your friend a big hug because I know it's difficult!
