Has anyone out there suffering from vasculitis had experience of trying to adopt children. We are in scotland and my husband has cutaneous vasculitis- (we believe he has Cutaneous polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) although we have not been told which form of cutaneous vasculitis he has).His kidneys function at 44% and he suffers leg ulcers from time to time and infertility all due to his vasculitis. We are going through the adoption process and he has his medical next week by our GP. The documentaton from this is then forwarded to the 'adoption doctor' who will approve reject or ask for further investigations. We have no idea what to expect regarding how they will respond to his vasculitis. They are so strict and wont approve smokers or people who are a certain amount overweight. We are just wondering if anyone else has gone through it and how it worked out for them. We would appreciate hearing any stories good or bad.
