sally, that would be great as some extra information. and thanks to everyone else too. truthfully, i'm a little scared about having a child either by pregnancy or by adoption. some days i just really feel crappy. and also, as much as a i hate to admit it, i am struggling with depression because of everything. and you know how that can make you feel. so i guess i feel inadequete to raise a child. my husband is kind of ancy(sp?) because he feels like he is getting old (27, oh please). for some reason he thinks that having a child will make me feel better. i don't know. maybe it will. i have had the paperwork for 3 months and still haven't filled it out. but don't get me wrong, i want children. for those of you who didn't adopt but had children during the disease, did you feel the same way? i guess it's normal, but telling myself that doesn't help. i think of myself holding this small child who was entrusted to me and think, Lord, what am i going to do?
