I am so confused right now. I had been planning on an adoption with my child. I have a family picked but now it's looking like things won't work out for them to adopt. A lot of complications have arised recently.
I work at my daughter's daycare and she always asks to see this one little baby I take care of. She always wants to hug and kiss her and talk to her. It makes me feel bad. I haven't really said anything to my daughter about being pregnant or having a baby (she is 3).
I'm so confused on what to do. I was so sure that I was going to do this, and now that it looks like it won't happen (or even if it would) I just don't know anymore. I'm due in August. I don't know what to do.

If you are confused do not talk to an adoption counselor .Their agenda is not to help you sort out everything including your 3 yr old's feelings .Their agenda is to press for adoption and to tell you it will all be fine.First and foremost if you have any conflicting emotions concerning adoption STOP.There is no going back once you have surrendered your child but many of the things that may have led you to adoption could be temporary.Unless your child will be in danger or you have no desire to parent her you should take your time with this.You can always place your child anytime in the 18 years after birth.You also need to know that open adoption is not enforceable no matter what is said.Take care and take your time.
