Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog or wrote privately regarding my infant adoption questions last week. I was grateful for each insight. If I end up using your words, I’ll write you sometime in the next few months to tell you which words I’m using, then double-check what name (or pseudonym) you’d like used and if you’d like a blog link in the acknowledgements in the back of the book.
This week I’m looking for feedback from adoptive moms AND from step-moms.
~~First of all, I’d love for you to describe your initial feelings about adoption or step-mothering. Were you excited? Terrified? Sure of yourself?
~~Second– I’m interested in hearing briefly how your feelings have changed or your perception has deepened since then.
Also, just because they’re wonderful, here are some pictures of our grandbabies in all their sweetness.
