My MIL is a huge blessing! All of my in-laws are supportive but they all have families of their own and can only do so much. My family is too far away to be much of a practical support. They were wonderful with Ellie this summer but now that they've seen a little of what my daily life is like, they won't let go of just how much I've taken on.
I love my family and I know they mean well but it feels a lot like judgement. Almost every comment feels like they're asking "why did you do this to yourself?" Yes, we addopted her. We chose to bring her into into our lives. But we didn't make the decision lightly and we're not gluttons for punnisment. There is 10 times more joy in our lives because of Ellie than there is heartache. (I know I'm not showing that part off very well right now but still...)
Okay done venting now. Just needed to get that off my chest.
