Emma's Story
posted August 18, 2005

I tried to conceive for several years, all the while watching my younger sister and friends get pregnant left and right, usually not even meaning to.

I went to a fertility doctor and it was discovered that I had so much scar tissue and adhesions that my tubes were blocked. It ended up that I had to have about 4 major surgeries, the last one was supposed to be a complete hysterectomy, (I was only 25 at the time), but my doctor stated that my organs including my uterus were meshed together from the scar tissue, that he could not get the uterus out.

Before this last surgery, my husband and I decided that instead of IVF, (didn't think I could bare peeing on another stick and it not be positive) we would try adoption. We were truly blessed with a fast adoption. We signed up with the adoption attorney in January and were chosen by the birthmother in March and we had a brand new baby boy in May!!! He is 5 years old now and from the moment he was born, even hours after he was born, everyone is convinced that my husband had an affair with our birthmother because they look so much alike.

Now after 5 years I still have that urge to see if IVF could work for me but am scared to death because we have not even got our adoption loan paid off yet.
