So excited to be adopting our 2 foster children (ages 2 and 4, siblings)! Glad to come across a website with other moms and great advice. We have had some challenges since going from no kids to 2 at once, but I'm loving every moment. Never thought I would have 2 when we decided to go thru the foster care system, originally wanted a baby and only one child. Trying to decide whether we want a boy or a girl, it didn't matter to us, but we lucked out and got one of each. Some days I just look at them and think how could anyone ever hurt them or not fight like heck to keep them and make them feel so loved. When they tell me "I love you so, so much mommy!", it just melts my heart. The 4 yr old seems to understand about the adoption, we've explained to him that he will always be our son, we will be family forever and he will live with us forever and ever. I've almost cried in front of strangers (at the grocery store or restaurants) when the 4 yr old says, I'm gonna be with my mommy and daddy forever and ever. They are the most precious gifts and I thank god every day for bringing them into our lives.
