I am 33 years old and I have no children. At the age of 31 I had to have a full Hysterectomy. I have a friend that has 3 children, one who is 6 and lives with his dad, and a 2 and 1 year old that lives with her and their dad. Well.. She is 36 weeks pregnant and wants me and my fiancé to adopt this one. However,, I am currently active on the kidney transplant list which means that at any time I could be called for transplant. do I want to adopt her ABSOLUTELY..My heart says yes,,yes,,yes... But my brain says can I do this while on dialysis and also waiting for transplant?? I have a huge support from my fiancé and our families, but I am back and fourth. The day she told me she was pregnant she immediately asked if I wanted to adopt! if I don't I believe she will let someone else do it! Is this my only chance to have a child?? Am I just being paranoid?? She has already asked me to bring her home from the hospitail! she doesn't even want to take her home! Where do I even start to adopt? Social Services?? Court house? please help me ladies....
Sincerely Stressed out and Confused!!!
