  • How can a couple want a child so bad and not remember any of it?
  • by emerald23 Last comment: Today at 06:20 PM

  • Hi, I want you to know you are still an amazing mother to make this decision. We just adopted our youngest son through foster care and have an open relationship with his birth mom. Her and I email all the time and skype and i send her tons of pictures and updates. We so would love to adopt again. I wish you all the best in choosing an adoptive family. :)
