I've been trying over a year and am about to turn 36 so I've recently done extensive research on adoption, domestic and international. It is a very long, extensive, grueling process, and expensive. If you are seriously considering it, it doesn't hurt to educate yourself as much as possible so if you decide adoption is for you, you are ready to start the process. Another option that is much cheaper and may be "quicker" is foster a child to eventually adopt. That is what I'm looking into now. In the meantime, I will continue to try to get pregnant.
