Long story short, i was a single mom for 4 1/2 of my daughters life. Her "father" has never been a part of her life. Then I met my husband. We lived together/dated for a little more than 2 years and have been married for 1. We are currently going through the "step parent" adoption process.
My husband and I are back and forth on whether we should have another child. I am the oldest of 3 brothers. I was 8 before I became a big sister, and I hated and resented my bro my entire childhood. My daughter would be 9, (if we got preg now). She is less dramatic than I was as a child, so I'm not sure how she would handle it. I am concerned that if we wait much longer, she will be going through puberty when I have a newborn, and I know that is an extremely difficult time for a girl, and I want to be there as much as I can for her during that time. It would be difficult to do with a baby too.
I just need a few opinions to help us THANKS
