We got the long-awaited letter this weekend, and so now we are officially on the waiting list.  Even though we can expect a couple of years before we get our child, it still feels like a big step forward.  

DX EM/POF Jan 2005 at age 34, after years of irregular and missing periods.  On BC to give me a cycle between FETs.
together with DH 13 years, married 6.
pursuing DE to complete our family - first transfer 3/24/06 BFN
FET May 30 BFN
FET July 6 BFN
FET Sept 19 - positive, then a week later negative
FET Jan 16 2007 BFN
ready to go for the last pair of frosties, BUT lining isn't being cooperative - maybe in 2008
starting the adoption process too, if our dreams come true we'll have two babies in two different ways!

That's super news, Vicki.  It is a small thing to be on the waiting list, but it is a big step forward in your effort to build your family.

I'm sorry the wait is so long.

Married Jan 2007.  Dx EM/POF in April 2007 while TTC.
DE/IVF July 1/08 - now Mom to 2 yr old.

Did you pop open the champagne to mark this milestone?  I hope you indulged - whether it be champagne, a nice dinner, a night out or whatever you might fancy!

I'm really pleased for you - it's a great step and takes a lot of effort to get there.

Whoo Hooo good for you... question for anyone... I live in the US.  My husband and I want to get a house before we adopt.  We are looking to buy a house next year.  So I was thinking of doing the house thing then focusing on the adoption thing.  But if it takes that long should I start now?
Thanks for any advice and I am very happy for you and wish you the best of luck!
