Adoption

Visit!

So excited to go visit with my daughter that I placed for adoption almost 3 years ago! It's been a long time since I have seen her and I am pregnanton purpose, so I am nervous to see how her family reacts. Her mother made it clear that she didn't agree with my pregnancy, but I don't think that my life other than what I have with karly should be any of her concern. Any suggestions on how to handle this? I am engaged and am so blessed to have the family I have now. I am lucky enough to be a sahm and I am almost done with school...is there really something wrong with me having another baby?!

    What was her reasoning? Why do you care if you're confident in your decision and things are good like you say? Brush it off.

  • Your pregnancy is your business.  Good luck -- I hope you have a great visit!

  • I can imagine it hurts having her judge you and your life choices, especially considering the nature of your relationship, but please don't let her make you feel bad about a decision you made and are otherwise excited about.  I don't know what her reasons are for feeling the way she does (although I can guess at a few), but I'm betting you know your situation far better than she does, have considered the decision thoroughly, and made the best decision for you and your family.  In the end, that's all that matters.
  • I agree with what the others have said. Good luck at the visit!
