I desperately wanted to give DD up for adoption because we had no money when DH lost his job while I was 7 months pregnant. He refused to sign the papers. then when DD was 4 we learned she has special needs. I have wished we had gone through with it ever since. I mean I love her and take care of her and do my best every day for her but I feel like she was meant to be with another parent and not us. Another parent could take care of her better. I feel like we were being led by God in the direction of adoption and we denied her, her perfect family by keeping her.

I think you know your limits & your capabilities. But instead of thinking you are not the right mom for her, why not get the help you need to be the best mom you can be for her? Is your husband still in the picture? How does he feel? Does he help? Ultimately, the 2 of you need to do what's best. But I would think after 4 years, adoption would be nearly impossible to handle emotionally. GL
