Debating

After going through the Foster Care orientation training last night, my husband and I are both in agreeance that God is leading us to foster/adopt (which is incredibly exciting). Now, the next question we need to discuss is what we are going to do about having our own child. We agree that we want to have our own baby and adopt, however, we need to decide which comes first. Biological or adoption? 

Originally, we were going to begin trying to get pregnant in March, but if we foster/adopt first then we need to push that back. But if we do biological first, then maybe we should start trying earlier? 

These are the questions my husband and I are debating. They are huge, life-changing questions and we do not want to make a decision lightly. Thank you for all your prayers and words of wisdom. If you have any comments, please let me know!

  1. All I can say is that when you start trying be prepared to fall pregnant immediately. Don’t think that if you start today you may only fall pregnant in 2, 3, 6 or whatever months time. It can happen straight away. Wishing you all the best on this exciting journey

  2. First, congratulations and thank you for considering fostering/adoption. It is such a needed role in today’s world. My partner and I have just finished our fostering classes and are waiting on our home study now. The demand for foster families is so high (especially in my area), that it is possible to get a call to foster within days of your home study being done. We’ve decided to foster/adopt first before we try for children. The biggest reason for us is because we are a same-sex couple and it is incredibly expensive to try to get pregnant. The other reason though, is that we aren’t completely convinced that we need to have bio children. Adopting can be just as rewarding! But again, congrats on taking this step! I look forward to reading your posts on how it is going. You will be an awesome parent to any child, adopted or biological! πŸ™‚
