One Day The Clock Will Fall

In all honesty the title has nothing to do with what i'm about to write, it's one of those stories where you had to be there to get it but regardless i thought it's a catchy title so i'm using it.

I'm really not liking this waiting game, waiting for a cycle to start, waiting to ovulate, waiting for a positive test, waiting for a phone call, waiting for a blood test result... I guess in a way we spend a big chunk of our life waiting for one thing or the other.

I'm gonna give you guys a short update on where we are in the waiting for a baby game and if anyone wants to know more details feel free to leave a comment.

Foster To Adopt Update:
As it stands right now we decided to put our adoption through Foster Care plan on hold, our home's status is inactive with our agency. Things have been really slow, it's been almost a year since our first placement in October of last year. After that first placement we had decided to change our age group so we can get more referrals and we decided not to take on any emergency placements since with both of us working full time it wasn't happening. Since changing our preferences with the agency we have not received many referrals. The agency we are with has had a high turnover rate, all the people we started with are no longer there so during our last training session hubby and i just felt we needed a break from the anticipation of waiting to get a phone call that wasn't coming.

Conception Update:
This year we have done 4 IUI's all of them were not successful. I did not want to write about this every month on and on it just gets old hence the summary update. I don't want to get into too many details but the bottom line is we are still and will always be trying to have a baby until it's physically not an option anymore or we get tired of trying. At the moment we can't really afford any advanced treatments since none of our insurances covers it and even if we could afford it i'm not a 100% sure i'd want to go through another IVF treatment. We are figuring things out as we go, we change our minds every day, what is a valid option today may seem impossible tomorrow and that's the beauty of life, options....... 

We are coming up on our 5th year in this process; i can't believe we've been doing this for that long, i sincerely hope we won't have to do it for much longer.
