And then work through that loss and maybe down the road - a very long ways - I would consider it. I'm not against it by any means, but I'm just not there yet.
DH would love to adopt so he's just waiting for me to get on board. I have a fear about adoption, that I don't want to express, for fear of someone taking it the wrong way. In my head it makes sense to me but to someone else they may see it as kind of crazy. Which I am on many levels , but this is a different crazy.
Thanks for the hugs! I'll take all the love I can get. Makes me feel all warm and cuddly inside.
well im glad you are feeling warm and cuddly :P
i figured you wouldnt take it offensively but i just wanted to make sure, seeing as its all a touchy subject.
you are very lucky that your husband is willing to let you take your time and isnt pushing you to adopt now, thats what true love is all about
and the craziness idea in your head, dont worry about that either
my boyfriend (hopefully fiancee within the next two years, he wants to launch his career and get stable first) is chinese (im your average white girl lol!) and he actually used to say he would love to adopt a child from china. I still to this day wouldnt want to because i wouldnt want to feel like an "outsider" in my own family. it sounds crazy i know, but everyone would think it was his kid, not mine, and i would feel awkward i think. then again if we did have kids ourselves, most people probably wouldnt think it was mine anyways, but at least i would know.
back to the point, everyone has crazy ideas, and thats ok.
