single adoptive mom

hi...I'm new here but I'm looking for a place to talk to other moms especially moms who have adopted. I have 5 adopted children with special needs and can always use an outlet...

        Oh God Bless you.. You've come to the right place.. Never any judgement here.. We know how hard it is and with adoptive and special needs? I couldn't even imagine how much you handle every day. You can vent anything... bad days, anger days, sad days, hard days and especially the good ones when everything you do, makes sense.

        Welcome and Happy New Year!

        Thank you so much for the warm welcome! That's why I'm here. My children are such a blessing in my life but they also consume me. And I know that probably makes me sound so self-centered but there are days I wonder, "What did you sign up for???" And so I don't feel the praise is really justified. My children were all adopted through the foster care system and while their needs are huge, they aren't evident to everyone who is only looking at the surface. So, that does make me feel that people are always criticizing their behavior and thus my parenting.

          Hi...thanks for the welcome. My children are ages 22,20,11,9 and 4. I'm just curious to talk to other adoptive parents about the bonds they share with their children. My children were adoptive after being placed with me in foster care and they have difficulties I was unaware of. I am blessed to have them as part of my life but sometimes I feel that things are bit more difficult because there is always the prospect of their birth family.

            Hi Nicole...my children all started in my home as foster children. They were all "special needs adoptions". For these reasons I did get help with adoption fees. I don't know if your situation is similar or not. How old is the child you'll be adopting? I wish you good luck!
