Hey Everyone! I was just 17 when I was diagnosed with stage 2 Rhabdomyosarcoma. I underwent 35 radiation treatments and 18 rounds of chemo. Sadly the chemo left me infertile killing all of my eggs. My husband and I got married 2 years after remission and began fertility treatments when I was 21 because we knew it would be a long hard journey. After 3 years and five rounds of fertility injections to help regrow eggs it is official that I am infertile and would need an egg donor to get pregnant. My husband and I thought/prayed about it for a long time. We strongly felt a calling to adopt so we are. We are so excited to be parents and have a family. We are adopting domestically out of San Diego in the early stages.
Anyone else go through chemo and adopt later in life?
