So confused....

Received a call this morning about a family member who just had a baby girl. They asked if we would consider taking the baby. There is a part of me that is done with the infant stage and after Nathan being such a sick baby I really don't want to go thru that again. However, there has always been a part of me that wanted 3 kids. DH says he feels done but is willing to talk about it and wants me to "state my case". I don't really have one...lol...3 kids is harder than 2 kids, more expensive, less sleep.....more love.

I have heard going from 2-3 is not bad, but it will make you want #4 :)



Whichever choice you make, it will work out.

Going from 1 to 2 is the hard part. After that it is all a piece of cake! What a wonderful gift you are being offered! Sending P&PT your way as you make your decision.

Sleep on it ... talk to DH and then follow your heart (whatever it is telling you). If this opportunity makes you realize you feel "complete" then you know. If it makes you yearn ... well ... then you know.

Good luck!

We went from 0 to 2, then 2 to 3 all in 12 months.

I am soooo sorry that I read your post and started to chuckle, because two days ago you wrote this to me:

Cheryl, Mom to 3 year old Aeryn via adoption, TTC since 2003 and finally pregnant via Donor Egg!

It just dawned on me that this decision could have ramifications on my family too ... we've been "cyber-twins" for 9-10 yrs now and seem to always follow in the other Kelly's footsteps within 1-2 months.

Wow, that is a such a huge decision! Good luck with whatever you decide... although I must say, I'm with Cheryl and rooting for "yes!"
