Here's our situation: We have 2 kids (3 and 1), and I am 7 weeks pregnant with our 3rd. Our oldest is autistic, and we feel we do really good by her, and we feel that she has changed our lives so dramatically for the better, that we'd like to open our home to another special needs child that otherwise might not find a home. We don't own our own house, and I am a SAHM and my spouse doesn't make good money, about 40,000 a year. Would we be crazy to adopt, that is, if we would even qualify to adopt a special needs kid based on income and already having a disabled child??? I don't feel like we're maxed out, I feel like we've got so much to give, we may not be rich but we find ways to do fun family things and my kids are clothed and fed and well taken care of medically and every other way. I dunno, I'm just looking for some feedback I guess! Anyone else in a similar situation???
