Hi Jennifer,

Please keep us posted! My husband and I just had a discussion and have decided to start moving forward with investigating adoption. I too agree that If after another 2 years, my progression is in check and I am feeling good, I really don't want to risk kicking it off again with a pregnancy and sacraficing my health. And like you, I don't want to risk the health of the baby either!

 

Good Luck!

Heather

Hi Jennifer,

 

I really should not be posting on this thread but I wanted to tell you that I am in the middle of an adoption. I took in my grand baby when she was 4 months old. My daughter has already terminated her rights to the baby and now I am waiting on dad to go to court for the same to happen. I am 43 and this is the best thing I have ever done in my life! This baby makes me smile everyday. I have bad days yes but just looking at her makes me fight more for my health! I say adopt and me a mommy. I do not know you but from your posts I feel like I do and seems to me you will do great as a mom. If you adopt have you given thought what age you would be looking at? my baby is 2 and she just started going through the not sleeping at night stage again so its like having a new born. up every 2 hours. She gets in my bed and I don't like to have her do that. I guess what I am saying is, I am tired a lot now because of this and I know being tired is harder on me because of the sclero. just something to think of.

 

Hugs,

Patty

Jennifer,

I am all for adoption! My husband and I were unable to get pregnant. I wasn't sick at the time. We adopted my son when he was 26 days old. That was 14 years ago. He is so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't ask for a better son.

Good Luck!

Nan,

Thank you for telling me about your son and the adoption. I love to hear those kinds of stories. If you would not mind sharing, would you private email me and tell me a little more about what it took for you to adopt...and more specifics?

Thanks Nan!!! I am set on being a mom now.

Yay Patty for your adoption. You are soooo lucky. I hope all goes well for you in court and you will be a wonderful mom. I am really excited. Now that I have this idea in my head it won't go away.

Bless you,

Jennifer

I too have lung problems because of scleroderma. I was going to have a baby till I found that out. My doctor said it may make my condition worse after having the baby. So I decided not to and I had an inter-uterine device put in. I just didn't want to make anything worse. After all we need to be here for our children and I didn't want to depend on my family to take care of my child. Even though they would. But good luck to you and I hope all goes well. After all we don't know what is going to happen neither do the doctors, just have faith.
