    Adoption is near and dear to my heart. My niece and nephew are adopted. My best friend and her husband adopted a baby boy a little over a year ago. And my sister gave a baby girl up for adoption when she was 17, they connected when the girl had children of her own, and now they keep in touch and visit each other.


    What are your adoption stories?

    My uncle and his wife adopted the daughter of another of my uncles, when his wife went bonkers and couldn't care for her brood. THat same Aunt had gotten pregnant while my uncle was in the service, delivered twins, and put them up for adoption after their birth.


    My other aunt and uncle adopted a sister of the little girl and raised her as their own, (she was mentally retarded...)

    My cousin adopted two adorable black boys, brothers, in the early 70s when very few people did this, after her own birth child died of Reyes' syndrome....

    When my daughter and I get a dog, we are going to adopt one from the animal shelter.

    I saw it, how anyone can go against 'feelings' and 'having my baby' as the worst eva is a mystery.
