Adoption Talk

This past weekend J brought up adoption. If you've read my posts lately, you'll see why this was like the worst timing ever. In the past, I would have been so happy to talk about this stuff with him. But my emotional tank is on a big fat E lately. I can't even imagine talking about adoption. That is like a whole world that I know nothing about.

Don't take this the wrong way- I was adopted myself and love the idea of adoption, but there is SO much I don't know about the process that I can't even think about starting to think about all that.

I also think that he wants to talk adoption because of my recent freak outs. I'm pretty sure he thinks that the next few months and then IVF will end with me in a padded room, crying and rocking. His solution? Let's adopt! For reals- I hate this shit.


  1. I'm sorry Kathy, we've been having the A word talk a lot too. I noticed that you guys are having a cold front up there! Boooo...sending you some warm spring midwest weather ::points fan to the NE::

  2. I'm sorry Kathy. Thinking of you...

  3. I'm a big fan of compartmentalizing. I think you have every right not to want to think about the A word right now. Cross that bridge if/when you need to.


  4. I'm with rein on this one. You don't need anything else on your plate these days. ((hugs))

  5. I'm feeling like the worst friend ever - I didn't know you were adopted somehow. Anyway, I'm sorry that you're on emotional E and that the talk just had bad timing. You'll get to that talk when you're ready, and I'll be here for you.
