    What a cool story!
    I have an adopted cousin. We used to think she suspected, but she's never been told; she's nearing 50 now with two grown children. My uncle would never allow my aunt to tell Rhonda.....because we think she is really his biological daughter. She looks just like him.

    And I have another cousin who has adopted two children, a boy & a girl, who are biological half brother & sister. I'm not sure the children have contact with the mother or not. They live in Washington state.

    since my last pregnancy was hard on my body again, especially my heart and blood pressure, my OB recommended me not having any more babies. I am fine with that because I know that there is always adoption. I think I still want at least one more baby/child. But since I am starting a home daycare this summer/fall, that itself might change my mind. :tng:

    If we do go ahead with this, we plan on adopting within the US because there are already plenty of kids right here at home who need homes just as much as the Chinese/Vietnamese/Korean kids do.
