After two unsuccessful rounds of in vitro fertilization, Giuliana and Bill Rancic still aren’t giving up hope of one day becoming parents.
“We’re going to do IVF another time in the near future because our doctor suggested, ‘I think I can get you pregnant.’”
And if their third try doesn’t end in a pregnancy, the couple are already considering their other option: adoption.
“When we were in Italy recently I felt very connected to Naples, where I’m from. We thought it would be really wonderful to be able to adopt a child from where I’m from and give a child there some opportunity,” Rancic explains.
Much to her surprise, however, news of the possibility of a foreign adoption struck a chord on Twitter.
“I got some Tweets … of people saying, ‘You should adopt from America’ and ‘A lot of kids need help’ and of course that’s true, but you know what? How can you tell a woman where she should adopt from?’” she questions. “You’ve got to follow your heart. So if it’s a foreign country, if it’s in your backyard … A child is a child.”
Despite their “really tough” battle with infertility, Rancic is determined to keep an upbeat attitude.
“Right now we’re doing a year of fun — we just needed time off,” she says. “You’ve got to look at the positive.”
