It depends on what type of stress and over what period of time you are talking about.  I had a period in hospital in 1999 with nervous exhaustion, this was mentioned in our application.  Also your doctor has to do a report so can explain in more detail than just simply "Stress".

I know from my perspective once I knew what it was, I no longer put myself in these sorts of situations and have learnt from it.  If it were a serial thing and a regular part of your life then they would look at the effect this may have on the children.

Hope this helps.

My DH was signed off from work for stress for a short period.  It's had no effect on our adoption.  I think Karen is right and it depends what type of stress it is, whether it is an ongoing thing that could affect the children in the future.
