Wanting to adopt

Ok so I've been needing to talk about this for a while but I have only been shot down. I was adopted. The women who I was adopted away from was awful. She saved me. She inspired me to do everything I can to be like her. Now I always wanted to one day be able to say I saved a child like my mom did me. Now I have three kids and I really want to adopt one more because I feel like that's a way I can be like my mother. But my husband wants no part in it. He won't even let me bring the thought up in conversation. it's tough. Sooo please give me advise

It sucks he doesn’t want to talk about it. Especially since it’s something you feel so strongly about. I wouldn’t mind adopting and I’ve thought about it. My husbands family fostered children and they adopted a few of them. My husband is very hesitant about it, his family dealt with damaged little souls. I could see how that can take a toll on a family. It’s a life long commitment and lord knows what you’re going to be dealing with. I don’t know if you’re a religious person but that might be something you want to pray about. Sometimes putting something like that into the universe and asking for the right circumstances and your husbands understanding is powerful. Like you’re doing now. Good luck with your journey.

Well he needs to man up n talk about it! How would he feel if he was in the situation you were? Me not my husband plan on adoption in a few years and he’s full on! He’s even ok with the fact that I offered to be my sisters sergeant!

This is going to be rough to read.. but I wouldn’t have married him my heart desires to adopt and my husband will know that before we marry, my current boyfriend is very open to it and agrees it would be something he would be ok with doing. It’s a deal breaker for me if it’s no an option
