Today was my oldest son's Halloween parade at his school. Of course, he was adorable and it was great! I even got to stay after for his class party before I had to meet with a client.
I have two wonderful boys. I thought I'd gotten over this. I love my sons, but I feel like I'm missing something. I want a daughter so badly. I won't survive another pregnancy and my essure procedure is scheduled. Right now, with us starting a new business, money will be tight for about six months until our profits start rolling. And truthfully, I know it would be so hard to start over with an infant. But my GOD, my heart ached when I saw supergirls and fairies and even a princess peach. I had to leave to cry in the bathroom at school for a couple of minutes.
Maybe one day I'll be able to foster to adopt a daughter.
I really don't feel like my family will be complete without her. Does anyone have any success stories with fostering to adopt?
I don't care what she looks like, what race, if she has delays. I don't care if she HATES glitter and tutus and only wants to play in the mud. It isn't about making a child into my idea of a daughter, it's about having a daughter in and of itself. It's a desire I've had since I began thinking about children. I feel like my family isn't complete. I want to open my home and heart to a child without a family who loves and supports her. HOW is this a bad thing? My dh wants a daughter, too, And agrees that our family isn't quite "whole" yet. It isn't uncommon to have a preference when fostering. Sone prefer to foster those of the same race or under a certain age or without delays. I do not care as long as she is a daughter and I feel I'm able to give her the support and level of care she deserves if she is physically intellectually delayed/disabled.
This isn't about wanting an accessory. This is about making my whole family complete.
