I've been having a difficult time, being that my son will be turning two in a couple of days, it's bringing back up a lot of the emotions and feelings I had two years ago. I so badly wish I could be a mother, but the only baby I can ever think of having is the one I lost. I can't imagine "replacing" him. I'm worried that these feelings will scare me out of having more children once it comes to that time in my life.
How did you feel when you had your second child?
How long did you wait?

I've hesitated to answer this, mainly because you know my story already. Relinquishing my first son, Danny. was a huge wake up call for me. I realized I needed to get off the party train and that what I really wanted was every thing that his adoptive mother had. I.E. a loving husband, security,Â Â a home and children. I was married to my husband of 19 years with two years of relinquishing and my twins are 5 years younger than my Danny. When I had my twins I was ecstatic. They were fabulous, and no they could never take the place of Danny. But, I was different to you. I didn't start dealing with my grief until I reunited with him.
