I had a dream last night that we adopted an 8 year old boy.

I have two children and am not in the position to have another- nor do I really want another right now. We have talked about in around 5 years or so considering adopting an older child with Autism- like our son but not now... What is with this dream? Was it just a dream or was it a sign we should move forward. The child in the dream was not even what we had in mind! He was a typical child who was of a completely different race than us! (I have no problem with that it's just not what we had been imagining when we talked about it KWIM?) Anyway it was just wired.

  • Imagine the hope and possibilities that gives someone that would otherwise languish in foster care and be lost to the system. Just saying....you should do it.

  • Not sure if your dream is a "sign" or just a sign of something that exists in your consciousness. Maybe that image is a sign that you really want adoption for your family, but I would use more than a dream to decide if now is the right time. Maybe he is an image from the near or distant future, so do what you feel is best for your family.

  • Maybe it was just a dream. But maybe it was a glimpse of possibilities. How wonderful would that be?
