There is a possibility but no guarentee that we may be able to adopt my son's biological sibling in Feb. Mom is pregnant and still undecided whether she is keeping the baby. I have no idea what to tell my son. Most people have 9 months to prepare their other children On top of it I don't want to tell him it wil happen and then it doesn't. It's such a difficult transition for any toddler but this is even harder. ANY ADVICE???Answer Question

Hmmm....I'd go the "hope & pray" route. There's no way that we could "spring" another child into our home with our 3 y/o son. He'd need to understand it ahead of time, at least the possibility of it. A friend recently recommended a book called, "Families Change" on Amazon.com. http://www.amazon.com/Families-Change-Experiencing-Termination-Important/dp/1575422093 I agree with Iamgr8teful, that I'd say, "I hope that he/she gets to stay" so that the possibility of it leaving is always there, at least until finalization. You wouldn't want your 3 y/o to have the rug pulled out from under them if the child were there a while and then left. Hope this helps.
