I am adopted myself and always planned on adopting, but now with two, I feel stretched already and the thought of more with less attention each is a struggle for me. Good luck with your searches, any advice or ideas is helpful!

Thank you!
To me, and we are just starting out, making this decision is not really much different than choosing to get pregnant again. How will another baby effect our family? Is it the right choice? Can we afford it? For us, adding another baby though adoption would be easier on the kids, since it would mean that I am healthy for my kids, and not spending months in bed unable to even make them a sandwich.
