Adopting kids while trying to conceive is a very good step to take especially for couples whose result show that nothing is wrong with both husband and wife. Sometimes the wife is advised to rest, to be more relaxed as anxiety could be a problem while TTC. When
couples wait for long years before kids arrival and then the baby that arrives after 20 years of marriage is the first child of the family, we wonder how long are this couple going to be around for this child. At old age, this first child is born. No one knows if a second will come or not. What if that child never came, will the couple remain childless forever when there are options to become parents? When I hear that couples have waited for over five years, my best advise is always to try and adopt because there are testimonies of women TTC who got pregnant after they adopted. Adopting a baby to love and nourish, you start waking up looking forward to this baby's smiles and giggles, caring and then the body stops being in that anxious mode of checking every months if periods are missed, then Gbam, it happens without the woman even taking note she's pregnant because something has occupied her mind. Adopting a child while Trying To Conceive helps to take the mind away from periods, and ovulations to actually caring and getting the body more ready to be a parent. Adopting a child brings happiness and that kind of happiness sometimes is what the body needs to help adjust hormones and to get itself ready for conception.

Ex-Beauty queen Ibidun Ituah-Ighodalo today shared lovely new photos of herself and her two adopted children, Keke and Zenan.

In a post she shared on her IG page, Ibidun wrote on how God made her welcome the choice of adopting children. Ibidun and her hubby, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo got married in February 2007 and she is nyet to get pregnant. She did an interview earlier this year talking about her struggles with fertility. The decision to adopt is great and wonderful that she is sharing this because there are many families TTC.

Read what she wrote below...

Where do I start? You are such a loving and kind Father it’s incomparable.

Your wisdom and might is unrivaled as is your knowledge.

You know the end from the beginning and the beginning from the end because time truly exists in you.

You knew me before you formed me and you knew my life’s journey and you prepared for me every step of the way…. My choice of a life partner though questioned by many was a divine masterpiece by you… You already saw the struggles and you knew the perfect fit for me… you knew who could handle the storms of life with me and you blessed me with a wonderful husband, friend and lover.

Ever so supportive and loving. Supportive through almost a dozen episodes of IVF, never wavering, there for every test and doctors appointment. With all the societal pressures and shaming you held me and comforted me in my low times. Even when that did not work out you were already planning something mind blowing.

How else could I explain the burden you laid on my husband heart to establish an orphanage even before our marriage? This same orphanage gave me my beautiful daughter who again has your hand in her life. Born on the same day as myself and named by her dad after me (such prophecy) and brought to the orphanage.

Even when I did not recognize your hand it was there till our eyes saw that which was always in front of us. Again ever supportive, my husband was in support of our choice to go in that direction. The way you piece our lives jigsaw puzzles astounds me continually papa. Out of the blue a call comes to my phone and my darling aunt says I’ve seen your son.

Come and pick him…. Not a clue to the process I started in faith and you made a way and Zenan became ours…. Even when I’m not thinking about myself you are thinking about me and putting my thoughts in the hearts of people. Seeing my son is a moment I would never forget.

The bond was instant, and love was in full flow. How could I ever have orchestrated my life as perfectly as you have done. I’m so glad I have you papa because your ways are not my ways and your hand is evident in my life.

Thank you Father for making a way, for guiding me, for holding me, for giving me joy, for sending me peace and for completely showing my family Favour. Papa my prayer would not be complete if I don’t ask you to open the eyes of my other women trusting you for the fruit of the womb to have an open mind to different ways of becoming a ‘MOTHER’. So many children are out there looking for love and a home to call their own.

I pray they experience the joy of motherhood as I do now and open their hearts to you to listen to as many options as you have provided….. Adoption does not mean you have failed them but is a way of showing what blessings you have in store for them if only they will yield to You…. a blessing which is priceless… I thank you for my two adorable kids, I could never trade them for anything in the world…. looking forward to your instruction on looking after more children Love you endlessly papaYours Forever Ibidunni your beloved. @tybello

    This was a good read

  3. This is my exact view on the issue. We need to realize that by giving love and life through adoption, we receive the joy of parenthood in return. After all we are adopted into God's family too, and it doesn't make us less of a mother .
