Throughout this week, National Infertility Awareness Week, we’ve been sharing some of our educational videos, which can help couples as they transition from infertility to an adoption plan. During this transition, it’s especially important for a couple to be on the same page and to have both reached acceptance that they will not be able to have a child biologically. Below Adoptive Family Specialist Kelli Cox talks about why it’s important for both spouses to be equally ready to move forward with adoption.

To learn about signs that your spouse may not be ready to pursue adoption, visit What if a Spouse is Struggling with Adoption? or visit the Infertility to Adoption section of our website.
