Those who know me know that I'm not a big fan of government. In my opinion, it has become excessively intrusive and costs way too much for the inefficiency it creates. That said, Tracy and I are trying to adopt through the state. We're taking required courses on doing foster care and are planning on going down the path of foster to adopt. We've already taken half of the 16 hour class and will completing the rest this week. Afterward, we're going to need to take a class on drug affected babies since the large majority of babies that end up in state care are drug affected and we want to foster/adopt children under 1 year of age.

We're also taking steps to go down the surogacy path. The main concern there is cost and still the looming question of whether it will even be successful. Tracy and I are fairly convinced that our issue is a problem with carrying the embryo and not with actually becoming pregnant. If that is the case, then there is no reason that we can think of that surogacy shouldn't work.

Also, we're still working with the agency in California to try to get a match. It's taking a lot longer than we expected with her. Still, she's been sending out our packets to a lot of birth moms, so we're still hopeful.

On a side note, some scumbags are using the comment section on this site to advertise their SPAM. If this continues, I'm going to have to disable the ability to leave comments, which would be a shame.
