Hi all. My name is Hope in AZ. I have tried and tried to get pregnant with no luck. I am 31 now and I have fought and won Cervical Cancer and had an ectopic pregnancy. I have an amazing best friend and she is willing to have a child for me. I have another good friend whom is willing to let me have his sperm to make this child and make my life complete. We have not gotten started yet. I have an idea on how we are going to do and I understand that it won't happen right away. I am just concerned about the adoption of the baby when we are done. I am being told two totally different things. Some say I have to have a lawyer in order to adopt the baby and others are telling me I can file for all of that on my own. Does anyone have a solid answer? No one I know has done this before so I am really struggling here with how to go about doing all of this. I was hoping to look at the forms and see what is required before getting her pregnant so I know what all needs to happen in order for me to get this amazing miracle in my life. If anyone has any advice please let me know or if you have adopted a friend or family members child before that would be the best to hear from you. Thank you all. Keep being amazing.
