I can't decide if I'm excited or not. Our adoption workshop is this weekend. Part of me is enjoying not stressing about becoming parents to a living child. Another part feels rushed to make it happen...I know that stems from BIL's wife pressuring him to ttc. We were trying long before they MET. They can't possibly have a kid before us...I don't think my mental health could handle it.
Also, I worry that going to the seminar will do one of two things.
Make it seem completely unrealistic that we'll be able to adopt any time in the semi-near future, therefore making me feel like even more of a failure.
Re-light the fire under my butt causing me to butt heads with DH again. He's already said that he doesn't want to jump into anything right now.
Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!
Proud former foster parent to a teen. Waiting on our next call. Proud Aunt to 22.
Proud mommy to 7 angels. Survivor of 4 failed adoptions (5 kids)
I hope and pray that there is a third option there that your DH will get the fire that he needs to feel comfortable going forward with adoption. There are so many wonderful children out there that deserve amazing parents like you.
Hugs Augie! That must be frustrating and intimidating for you both. I think that knowledge can be power though, and it's nice to at least know your options and have a jumping off point for your next step. Good luck!
*Thank you so much to Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!*
