Had my stomatch turn upside down...

I'm terribly sick with a cold... So I'm confined to my bedroom watching re-runs and goofing off online.

In my boredome I decided to look up adoption agencies - I have always wanted to adopt. To me a child does not have to come of my body for me to feel maternal love. Dont get me wrong I love my own biological child, but I envision the day I can welcome an adopted child into my life. So here I am looking up agencies reading information for when the time comes for us to adopt...

And then read this:

While in the orphanage, children generally get good care, although due to lack of one-to-one stimulation it is typical for children to be less advanced in development in comparison with a child reared in an attentive family. It is estimated that for every three months in an orphanage, a child’s development is delayed by one month.

Just made my stomatch turn and my heart fall into a million pieces... I know its a fact that children need individual attention, but I cant help to think that my possible child is suffering out there =(

It's sad but true, I had patient's who were adopted from orphanages and they are/were extremely delayed.

=(

Once you adopt just try enrolling your child in therapy and help them as much as you can.

Good luck with the adoption process.

I hope you feel better mama.

It's so sad, but I believe it does happen.

If only there were more people that were able and willing to adopt.

Good luck.

I hope you are able to adopt soon.
