So we've been talking about options. Besides IUI, for us, there is IVF, Adoption, Surrogacy and Embryo Adoption.
There is a process, you don't just go into a clinic, pick the embryo and implant (which I'm embarrassed to say is what I thought). There is an approval process, a home study, similar to Adoption, then the actual transfer (assuming you were approved). This process can take anywhere from 1-2 years. But it's quoted as shorter than a Domestic/International Adoption and I'm guessing this would be the least emotional (if there is such a thing when TTC. I am by no means minimizing the emotional aspect of any of these options). Question is: Do you take the risk..Do I want to wait that long? I'm not getting any younger and I don't want to be 60 when my child graduates from highschool.
