A counselor who deals with anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and/or womens'/family issues (I can't find a better way to express this right now), might be a good way to go. Many counselors who deal with baby or neonatal loss, are also treating women who have not lost a baby, but had difficult pregnancies, or babies in the Nicu, or children who are sick, or similar. There is a variety of issues, such a therapist will counsel. In my view, it is most important that you like and trust your therapist, and their way of counseling you.

So, I've clearly been wishy-washy on this topice for that past two years, and I'm just about to just "throw in the towel", so to speak. I can't get the fear out of my head & I'm leaning toward adoption. It is kind of a bummer to admit defeat...

Kelli, I don't think you should call it defeat at all. Choosing to be a mother through a different avenue, like adoption, could be a beautiful journey for you! My husband and I are signed up for the next round of foster/adoption classes in our city. And then we got pregnant :) But we are still going to go through with the classes because we are followers of Christ want to care for orphans as we're called - the foster/adoption journey is so much bigger than "us"! that is really "big picture", ya know? I wish you the best in whatever your decision will be and I pray you have peace about it.
