I have two boys that are 10 and 5 years old. They are such beautiful and wonderful children. I'm adopting a baby that is due in March. I'm so excited, I can't stand it. I can still have kids, but I chose to adopt this baby because it's my cousin's 4th and she doesn't want him. I had always intended to adopt a girl because I wanted to be certain I'd get one but I just know this babyboy belongs with us. I'm sure I'll love him the same. Has anyone ever adopted after they had kids? Did you feel different about the adopted child? I know it's an odd question...Answer Question

Please don't ever say these words in front of him: "she doesn't want him". You may feel the same way for him as you do the others, but he'll probably feel quite differently. Please read some books about common Adoptee feelings. I recommend "20 things Adopted Children wish their Adoptive Parents Knew" and "The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child" Both available new and used on Amazon.
