Jeff and I were married in 1999 and knew that we wanted to be "young parents". So, we decided after one year of marriage that we would go ahead an try to start having kids. We did fertility treatments (pills & 2 in-vitro attempts) for 2 1/2 years. We did our first round of IVF in May 2002. I just knew that it would take and that I would be pregnant. Well, obviously it didn't work out and Jeff and I were both devastated. All of our friends were having families and we were hurt and confused. We decided to try IVF again and after the 2nd round, our doctor simply told us that our plan is not always what God wants. He continued to tell us that he felt it could be a dangerous pregnancy if I was ever to conceive. That day is when we started talking adoption. We both knew that we would adopt internationally, but we didn't know what country we would adopt from.
