Don't know what ICLW stands for?  Check it out here.

After reading quite a few blogs that are participating in ICLW this month, I noticed that lots of people wrote kind of a "welcome" post.  I thought this sounded like a good idea, so I'm hopping on the band wagon.  Here's me in a nutshell:

  • I've been married for nearly 3 years to my high school sweetheart.
  • I have PCOS, and have known since I was a teenager.
  • We've done 5 failed rounds of clo.mid
  • We've done 2 failed rounds of fem.ara
  • I'm waiting for AF, so I can start my third (and final) round of fem.ara
  • We plan to move on to injections in the new year if this last round doesn't work
  • We had 1 early miscarriage in 2007 
  • We are licensed foster parents
  • We are in the process of adopting a 2 year old boy through the foster care system.  He was placed with us in January.
  • I am getting into photography.

That's pretty much it!  I hope to make new internet friends and acquire new blogs to read this week!  Enjoy!

I am becoming more and more interested in adoption through fostering, but not real sure where to start. We've had 6 failed clo.mid cycles, and not financially ready to move on to the RE (and all the procedures that will probably follow).
I read you other blog, and I hope the lawyer your parents hooked you up with will be able to get the ball rolling on your adoption of Asher. He's really cute!

My husband and I have always wanted to do foster care. Good for you (and Asher) that you went for it! I am interested to know how the whole process goes, so I'll be following.
