Hi. Anybody out there have experience with adopting post-cancer? I'm still doing chemo, but am getting close to finishing and the outlook is great. We can't have kids, so are wanting to adopt. We were going to start on this over a year ago, but got derailed by my diagnosis and treatment. My husband wants to go ahead and get started with everything now, but I'm thinking we'll "look better" as potential parents after I'm in remission, have some hair, don't look quite so much like a cancer patient, etc... Anybody been through this or going through it or know anything about it? I don't want to wait forever, but don't want our application to get thrown in the trash after they come to do a homestudy and are greeted at the door by a scrawny sickish bald woman.
