Q: Why adopt now?

A: Because it is the right time. How do I know it's the right time? I just do. (Didn't anyone tell you that moms know everything?)

I know some people can't believe I am ready to take on the "trouble" of a second child... they question how I will afford it, how I will do it without my family around, how I can possibly have the time for another little one. And sometimes I wonder those questions, too. But if families waited until they had the finances, time, and resources for a second child, everyone would be an only child! It is the right time to bring another child into our family, and Abigail and I are excited. I hope to adopt a toddler, and if I wait much longer, Abigail and the little one would be so far apart in age that they wouldn't be close- at least not in the way I hope they will be.

I'm concerned, too. I really hope this means that medical school is on hold, though. I know how stressed you were in nursing school and how hard it was on you and Abigail.

You have to do what you think is right. I've always told you that. Just be safe and know when to ask for help. You are amazing but you're not a superhero. And even if you were, they need help too.
