My wife and I went through that as well. Eventually, we decided that if we ever had the opportunity to adopt, we would. Two days later her doctor called, advising that one of his patients, an unwed mother, had decided to put her unborn child up for adoption. Ten days later, we were parents, with a beautiful three day old boy, who is now 14 and bigger than me.
We later had a second son the biological way, the 12 year old mentioned in this thread. Then, just when we thought we were finished with the baby routine, we had a second biological son, our 8 year old.
I love 'em all. I sincerely hope you get to have these experiences.
