My only plan is to live until he's 18.

I resemble this plan Jeannie.  We keep putting off our will because a - we are procrastinating and b - we don't know what to do about dd24.  We had planned to write her out because of her not keeping in touch, but now she's reconnecting and I don't know that we can do that.  Sigh.  I don't know what else to do but keep on living.   happy8

I haven't sent it to my two yet, but will do that today. I'll let you know what they say... 

On a related note, my DS13's counselor (a good guy) thinks we need to have a family conference to discuss "what ifs".  DS needs the security of knowing what would happen to him if DH and I pass away.  Since John died, the possibility of such things has become more real to him (and us all) and we need to figure out some kind of Plan B.  Problem is, I have no idea what would be best.  My only plan is to live until he's 18.  I can't figure out anything else that would work for both him AND our daughters, both of whom are single. DH and I keep delaying the conversation...

True....already heard back from my swp son age 31...who said, "There's still a small part of me that says we're not done yet and it is and will be worth it! Love you!".    He was 11 when we blew up his world.   I guess I'll grab on to his hopeful coat tails....

OTOH....my swp oldest dd, who was 14 when we blew up her world, read the article and thanked me for NOT adopting TEN....lol

Thank you Jeannie.  I think that is one of the most profound pieces I have read on adoption.  And simple.  I have struggled with this being national adoption month.  I have no public words to express what I feel.  This article comes the closest to saying what I couldn't.  I will be sharing it as well.  I would love to post to the general public, but will at least share this with sweetpea ds27 who was so hurt by all that went on in our home with the girls.

Well....it made me cry.  Thank you for sharing this.  I sent it to each of my sweetpeas...who have suffered so much but have also said mostly the same things as this lovely young lady.   

I can't imagine being the only bio sib with TEN adopted siblings.  Her life is forever changed and hopefully she will survive and redeem what she can.  Thank you so much!

What thoughts do you have about this?  It touches me....  and makes me hurt for my bios.... and my DS13... and for all of us.
