I remember you from the IVF board I don't know if you remember me I just wanted to say Welcome.
Adoption felt so overwhelming to us when We first decided this is the way we will build our family. There is alot to it but I felt that way about my two IVF's and if that desire is there to become parents you will be able to do it no matter what comes your way. I am proof as my 6 month old son is a sleep in his crib right now. He has been home for two weeks.
You will find alot of people who has done adoption when you start the process and make some wonderful and dear friends who will help you along every step of the way. I have and it has been a blessing.
We will be here also supporting you either way you choose domestic or international.
I just wanted to wish you the best of luck.Mommy to Nathaniel

Sorry it took me so long to answer, I don't usually check this board that often. We used Adoption Connection (offices in SF and Walnut Creek) for our homestudy. They offer free orientation meetings for both domestic and international adoption. Here's a link to their website. Click on either domestic or international orientation and it will show you the upcoming dates:
One of the things I liked about Adoption Connection is that they are "fee for service" meaning you only pay for what you use. Many agencies only offer packages of services and even if you don't need all the services offered, you pay for them.
By the way, we live in San Lorenzo, so we are not far away at all!
Just a little history - we started out trying to adopt domestically, we were matched once and the birthmom changed her mind. After 18 months of waiting and no baby, we switched to international. We adopted our daughter from Guatemala and then found out that the birthmom was pg again. Our son (my daughter's biological sibling) was born 17 months after our daughter.
We were very lucky and both our kids came home very young. Our daughter was 3.5 months old, our son at 4 months old.Marie L, Mama to Marielle, 9 and Rico, 8
