Dear adoptive moms. My husband and I have 2 children (our daughter is from my previous marriage) ages 4 and 11 months. I am craving one more child and we are thinking of adoption- the reason is partially I'm older 38 and have some risks with pregnancy but mostly just to give a child a home rather than bring another one into the world. My hesitations are- will we feel the same love/bond with the child as we do our own? Especially my husband. If we adopt through the county will we have to worry about drug babies and the effects of poor prenatal care? Any advice would be appreciated!
