  • i know a lady who i have been friends with for almost 10 years in that situation. her older 3 were adopted, and she still has her youngest. she is finaly getting her life back together after many years. it takes a lot of strength to come back from rock bottom.

  • Good on You for morphing with life and changing what didn't work~i hope you get as much contact from your birth children as you need~kids go to 18 and adults really fast and that relationship is what I would hope for and be ready for~
