1. I understand it. Someone has a huge job description that reads “decide whether this family should have another child”. That’s a big responsibility. So, come on in and look in my closets, make me have a psych evaluation and have me fill out your mountain of paperwork.
2. I resent it. People have biological kids all the time and never have to do this.
I waffle back and forth between those two feelings. Adopting from a Hague Country is so hard! Then, I remind myself that adopting from Ghana was SO hard. It’s all hard, and, it probably should be. I can honestly say though, I’ve never in my life given much thought to having a bio baby. The Hague home study process has made me consider it. For about two seconds.
