I'm a single mom of a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I love being a mom, it's the best thing in the world! I have been waiting for the right guy to come along...but it hasn't happened. I just turned 31, I have graduated with my bachelor's degree, have a steady job and own a home. I'm so happy with my life and my daughter, but I feel like I'm missing another child. Growing up with a little sister who was my best friend was great, I feel like my daughter is missing out. I really want another child, but I'm unsure of what to do! Should I adopt and do they even adopt to single moms? Foster care with the chance of adopting? Or do I do artificial insemination... it's just so expensive. I really need some help and suggestion on what to do? Thanks in advance!

Kristen Ballard.. I am in a similar situation as you. :( I am a single mother of a 4 year old who will be 5 in July. a few friends and family members of mine are pregnant and it is really making me want that again. I miss all of it. My daughter has brothers from her father but its just not the same. I know. I am about to buy a house so I know I will be stable enough to afford it. I am only 22. I have not seriously dated anybody in 4 years and I am afraid that I am losing my chance to keep my kids close. I have a younger brother who is eight years younger than i and we are not close at all I feel like we barely know each other because of my work kid and school schedule. so I hope one of your replies will help me as well. good luck to you and yours.

Adoption is such a wonderful gift to give a child.. If they see you are financially stable, they might allow you to adopt. A good friend of mine and his two siblings were all adopted, from different families, to be with a great couple who has raised them well. The best of luck to you!
