Thinking of Adoption
I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. I have a habit of typing whole dissertations!
We are a family of four. Two BC, boys, ages 1 and 3. We have always wanted a big family of 4-6 children and were hoping to adopt. At the minute all we are doing is research. We’d hoped to have all of our children with close age gaps for many reasons. We both have big families either side all with close sibling age gaps that have worked really well. We have a wonderful home/family and extended supportive family and we are now discussing extending that family. I’m aware that the process can be costly and time consuming so I know it would be at least a few years before we might be approved and matched.
However, I’m sensing quite a bit of negativity with regard to close age gaps of BC and AD. I’ve also read that most AC come with an abundance of additional needs. This surely can’t be the case with all children? I would love to hear some positive stories.
