This is mainly for those who became pregnant with a donor or expanded their family through adoption, but all feedback welcomed, of course.  :-)


How did you decide between having a baby yourself or adopting?  I would love to experience pregnancy again, but am worried about giving birth.  The women in my family just don't seem to birth well, and my own experience with DS was less than pleasant.  Anyway, I'm scared to go through that on my own and risk complications arising again.


I do feel a pull to adopt, but I'm not sure how on earth I'd be able to cover all of the costs involved, plus I feel like I'd be way down on the list of "acceptable parents" because I don't have a spouse.


Are there any books or websites you could recommend?

I would read the primal wound its about adoption trauma... I am an adoptee. I don't want to argue it but needless to say I don't think adoption should be your first choice unless you are adopting an older child and you know the implications about it.


Thats just my opinion.
