All of those single moms you see out there? Well, they aren't all single moms because they had one night stands. Many of those kiddos were planned. That was my Plan B, and sometimes I think it should have been my Plan A (DH is not an easy person to be with, to put it mildly). Whether you adopt a child already born or an embryo, you are offering a child a chance at a wonderful life he or she might not have otherwise had. When we donated our embryos it was very emotional, and I was crushed when none of them took. I say "go for it". With gusto.
