I have 3 wonderful step-children that I love with all my heart. I still have an empty feeling. I had to have a hystorectomy at 22. I want to have a child that belongs to my husband and I. I guess what I dislike the most about our current situation is having to share the children with some one else. It is very difficult because we deal with a very hateful ex-wife. Is there any Moms out there that have adopted with advice to help with this desicion?

Thank you Katie, just curious but did your sister adopt internationally or here in the states?

I have not adopted myself but my sister has, and she had a wonderful experience. From that first minute that she held each son (one adopted at 6 mos. and the other at about 6 wks), they were her children. Her boys are in high school now, and I had the joyful opportunity to watch them grow and thrive. I am so glad that she adopted and added two very wonderful now young men(!) to our family. They have filled everyone's hearts with love.



Adoption is a wonderful way to build a family. If you're ready to be a full time mommy, I encourage you to explore it.



Best wishes!

Be sure if you consider adopting that it is for all the right reasons. You currently do not share your step-children, they go to visit their mother and spend time with her. If you adopted a child, how would that change your current situation? Do you think it would have any impact on the relationship with your step children? I understand that you want a husband with your child, but it comes off as part of the reason is your step-children go visit with their mother, whom is possibly hateful in some way. That situation is not going to change, unless the reason for her being hateful is figured out and dealt with.
