I hope that you get to adopt some children soon. Sometimes there are sibling groups of children that need a home. When I became a teacher I taught in a catholic school. I taught a little boy that was being fostered. His foster parents decided to try to adopt him and his older brother as well as his younger sister. The older brother had lost all his hair through all the harsh treatment he had received from his birth parents. The little boy in my class had challenging behavior at lunch time. The youngest sister behaved normally. The adoptive mother told me that she and her husband found the two boys very difficult and if it wasn't for the girl they might have given up. Another little girl in my class was also adopted and she behaved quite normally. In a different school I taught a little girl from Colombia. She was happy with foster parents then social services found someone else to adopt her. Good luck and may you become adoptive parents in the very near future.

Ladies, please, never give up hope. I am a firm believer that things happen when they are supposed to . Easy for me to say, right? I know it is hard, I have been there. I have two children but, I was pregnant 7 times. I was soooo disappointed and hurt that people were leaving babies in gas station bathrooms to die and, I could not have one at all. We started to look at our options. There are lots of children out there without parents. Foster care and adoption are options. And, I know that adopting is a long process but, isn't it worth it to be able to raise a child in a loving family and home? Like I said in the beginning of this post. Never give up hope. Things do happen for a reason. To those of you who need it, I am sending lots of white light and prayers for a joyous addition to your families.

Have you considered opening your hearts and home to an older child or sibling set? There are many, many children out there who need good homes-- not just healthy white infants.

smileyandponcho, I am so moved by your story. I have always had a soft heart for those just like yourselves. So soft, that I have actually donated my eggs twice in the past. I was an IVF Donor several years ago before I passed the age limit of 35. I am unfortunately 38 now. I would do it for you in a second. The fertility doctor I used was wonderful. He had such great success with me, he called me and recommended me to a second couple. I would be glad to give you his information in private. The first time I donated I actually produced 26 eggs that met the requirements to be extracted. The couple decided to have 2 eggs implanted. One of the eggs split and she had a set of identical twins and the third one. They froze the rest. The second time, they extracted 19 eggs. The second couple decided to have 2 eggs implanted. Unfortunately it didn't work but, they froze them anyway. I just got a call from the doctor last week and he said they are going to try again and unfreeze 2 more. Due to costs, it took them a while to save again and a while to get their hopes built up again for something wonderful to happen. I could keep you posted if you want. Good luck and God will bless you two in one way or another.

You know I really don't understand it. There are so many well deserving parents who are unable to have children, and as you said, too many that are capable of having children, but not deserving. My husband's parents adopted him and his sister (not blood sister) by way of being foster parents. Even they weren't completely deserving, because both of the kids spent their whole lives being told what a huge mistake it was for them to be adopted! Okay, enough of my sob story... I hope someday you find the miracle you're praying for, one way or the other. Best of luck to you.

Ti's hard to understand why things happen the way they do. God has a reason for everything. My aunt tried for 10 yrs, ended up adopting 3 and then at 45 got preggo for the 1st time. So, who knows.......Keep praying and God will work it out.

Have you considered or tried to adopt toddlers or older children? Perhaps you might serve a foster parents - there may be children out there who need loving parents such as you and your husband.

I will pray for you and your husband to be blessed with children. I have been blessed with two children. Also, I've had 2 miscarriages and both were in the second trimester. It is heartbreaking to lose a baby, so I can understand how heartbreaking it must be to have someone change their mind about letting you adopt. It isn't fair and doesn't make sense why so many children are abused and unwanted. why some people just keep pumping them out like puppies or some of the things you listed above and people like yourself are just praying for 1. I hope your prayers are answered soon!

I feel for you I truely do im a mother of two small children and they are my absolute world I cant begin to imagine how much it hurts you to have your dreams ripped apart time and again. I agree though about the fostering maybe that can be the way in which you and your husband give the love you so obviously have and help make not just one childs life better but lots. Keep hoping and dont ever give up xxxx

Hi, I believe God will surely bless one to you. Have faith in Him. Try read the bible and be encourage by it. Remember, God will make a way, when there seems to be no way. My brother is facing similar things too. They've tried all their ways, yet till now, they still childless. They've been married for 8 years plus.

You should become a foster parent. A "friend" of mine had a baby in late september, and the baby was taken by early november. This little boy has been with a wonderful foster mom ever since. You could become a child's safe haven after being taken from an abusive/neglectful home. If you foster, you could take in special needs children. You could also offer to help a single mom with babysitting, maybe work in a daycare, or as an aide in a school. Don't take this wrong at all please, but I think if someone isn't able to have children, it's for a reason. There are so many children that are born and dumped, children abused because of a disability, or just because they were born. So many people do not see their children as a gift, they're a burden. There have to be families that are willing to give "unwanted" children a good home. Good luck, and God bless

Im sorry to hear that you have not been able to start the family you long for. You say you have tried adoption. This can be very frustrating as you have well found out. 8 years ago, (as a single parent to my 8 year old birthdaughter ) I became a fosterparent. Although I never planned on adopting, Iam now the proud parent of 3 girls and another that will be adopted in Aug. By being a fosterparent, I was called when a newborn needed to be placed often within a few hours of their birth. This puts you first in place to adopt if the child is not placed back with birthparents. By fostering, it put me in the position to be in "the right place at the right time". Consider fostering as a way to fill that home with lots of little ones! Lots of luck to you and your hubby. kariann

I know its quite unfair that parents who dont want children are having them, then they just abort them or dump them or even hurt them, but have you tried to let science help you? There are so many advance methods now that are available for us to take advantage of. Theres a couple from here (Philippines), both in their late 30s who have been trying to get pregnant for several years, but to no avail. So they opted for IN VITRO FERTILIZATION. It was done in Taiwan, and cost around php500,000 ($11,400), this includes their air fare, hotel, food, doctors fee, etc, and their stay in Taiwan for 1 month. They are now the proud parents of twins, a boy and a girl. Dont lose hope, I know you will be great parents someday, all in God's time. Take care...

I can imagine your eagerness to have at least 1 baby because of the time already past. You know you are not alone in this kind of situation. Every aspect of our life has a purpose and don't lose hope, I do believe in your prayer God is there watching and hear you as you pray for a baby. In HIS time he will answer your prayer. You know you are so important to GOD and because of that HE will give you a baby and not only a baby, the best 1 baby or 2 or 3 babies. Just keep on praying. God Bless you!
