Hi - It is very exciting to hear somebody else who has also experienced the same process. We are just about to finish our adoption journey....then on to the "being a family" journey!!
I was diagnosed in 2010 aged 25. Now, almost five years on, my husband and I have just completed the adoption process and will soon meet our child with whom we have been matched. It certainly has raised a few of the usual BC wobbles but it is more exciting than anything else.
The Local Authority we went through had no issues although the medical in Stage One took a bit longer as letters were waiting on consultants' desks and that kind of thing. It has not been a barrier at all and we're now looking forward to starting our family. It has been interesting "choosing" to adopt when so many others go through it because they can't have children and that has been the only thing we have been quizzed about a bit but, because of the oestrogen risk and the fact I may have dodgy genes, it was the best decision for us.
Good luck for anyone heading down the same road!
Congratulations on all that you've achieved despite your problems. I wish you great joy in your new family and I am sure the children are going to be so blessed with you both as their new parents.
