Please see my comment to ESJ, a few comments above.... I am a hardcore environmentalist and I totally hear your concerns. I felt the same before I was in this situation, but now I am about to be a donor recipient. Adoption is far from an easy solution, and I think your concerns about population are misdirected...... The need to have a child is biologically based and it is profound, the pain we go through with infertility is beyond anything I could have imagined before embarking on this journey. I do a lot to 'save the world', my lifestyle choices, 7 stray cats, and I'm a special ed teacher.... we are all good people in our own way. I don't think it is the responsibility of infertile couples to save the world's children, though believe me if adoption was less beaurocratic and less expensive more of us might make that choice. Don't judge until you've been there -
