In brief: Sometimes
Ivf is an alternative to adoption in some cases where a woman is a "good candidate" for ivf.
In other words, if a 47 year old woman wants to adopt, she has a much higher chance of "having a child" through adoption vs. Ivf, as she would be considered a poor candidate for ivf success due to her advanced age. I hope this makes sense...
