Try not to beat yourself up, mama. I am an adoptive mama, and though I didn't give birth to my little bug, I have been asked so many times "are you still nursing" or "how is the breast feeding going" and even though I was not able, it broke my heart. But, I have a happy healthy 1 year old! Hang in there. not even having the option is hard.
