Ugh

My youngest son had a terrible headache last night.  He was lying on the couch and I was on the computer at a table near him.

Out of the blue he looks up and says,

"Mom, can we adopt Brit back?"
I responded (trying not to cry),

"I suppose we could, but Brit's parents would have to let us.  And that would never happen."
 "Why?"

"Because they love her so much that they would never want to let her go."

"I wish we could have her back.  It's not fair."
Conversations like those are a dagger to the heart.

Just found your blog and I have to say, I have had these kinds of heart breaking conversations with my boys as well.

:( Many hugs for all of you.

Oh my, this brings tears to my eyes. I am so sorry. The thing no one tells you before you enter into adoption is that it's like throwing a rock into a pond...

there is a ripple effect and you never know who will be effected by that. I never imagined at the age of 16 that my future children would be effected by the choice I was making, BUT THEY ARE.

They miss their older brother just like I miss my son. I am so sorry that your boys miss their baby sister.
