  • 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. :)

  • I'm so glad she responded, took it well, and responded well IMO. Like Paige, you've been in my thoughts too. Hard not to think of, I have been in that excited anxious worried waiting spot before and it is NOT so fun! I am curious too about what your son knows about his sister. I can imagine if it were me that I wouldn't tell him these details about his teacher while he was with her in...
