I know most of you will probably think I'm crazy for thinking about this when DD is only 3 months old, but to be honest, I've been worried about it since the day she was born...well even before she was born!
DH and I have always wanted 2 children. I highly doubt we'll have such an amazing experience again with DIA so I most likely plan to do embryo adoption for baby #2. I had been put on the waiting list for that back in March and was told it was a 2 year wait, but ironically the week after DD was born, only 6 months after getting on this waiting list, they contacted me telling me it was my turn. I am putting it off for a while, obviously, but now I am wondering if that's the right choice.
DH and I had said that we wanted the whole experience with baby #1 but maybe we'd adopt and older child for our second. You girls are all so amazing, especially the ones who have adopted older children, and it makes me think that we really should consider that too. There are so many children out there that need homes.
How did you decide to take in an older child versus a newborn? We'd be making a few sacrifices, as far as not having them from the beginning, having all the baby pictures, etc...and then I'm sure there would be difficulties with bonding, emotional issues and so forth with an older child, but again, I know it would be amazing.
Thanks for listening. I've been avoiding posting this as I think most of you will think I'm out of my mind..but I can't help but think about it!
