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

We just finished up our adoption journey and finalized a few weeks ago. It was such a long up and down journey, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I hope we are able to adopt again! For anyone waiting to be matched don’t give up its worth it!❤️

I would love to Adopt.. A baby but can't afford to do it. What are some other cheap options that would help.

I understand I’ve always wanted to adopt but my boyfriend says he don’t want to. I think that it just takes time.

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.
