So, I'm sure those of you going through domestic adoption can PLEASE dispel this myth that we should just adopt from the US, bc there are plenty to go around. It is important to us to maintain age order at this point, so that means under 3, more like 0-2. My parents have completely wigged out on us that we are doing the worst thing ever, and they alluded to taking us to court over this. Yah, really.
My sibling also adopted, and they threatened them to go to court for custody of the bio. grandkids, too. *sigh* Thei case were domesticly adopted, and my parents still bitch about them being "drug addict kids", yet they think international is worse.
This isn't meant to be one is better than the other. My point is that we feel international is right for us, in our situation. Needless to say I will be starting some therapy & possibly limiting interactions of them with my bio son in the meantime.
