How to explain adoption to my six year old? Edited.
I'm due in March and not keeping it. I was excited at first, but now I'm not. I dread it. I don't look at baby stuff, nor do I care to buy any. Ever since I found out it was a boy, I've been so depressed about it and withdrawn.
All my son wants is a sibling. I hear about it all the time. I feel like I'm denying him something, but why have a kid that I know I won't be able to love? I know I won't feel attached to this kid. I don't want it. I'm hoping to be able to hide it from him.
If he does find out, somehow, how do I explain this to him? That I have the chance to give him a sibling but I can't because I don't want another boy?
This isn't about why I'm giving it up for adoption. It's about how to explain it to my son if he finds out.
This was my last pregnancy. They have two different fathers and I certainly won't be trashy and make a third with anyone. So I won't have anymore after this.
