I am thankful for my darling, darling husband who came home from work early to help take care of his still recovering wife and sick baby. He bravely "made" dinner by getting our favorite Chinese food. He fed and bathed Jocelyn. He's put up with both of our whining. He's picked up a lot of slack and is just such a sweet, sweet man. Love you, baby!
I found this interesting guide on adoption myths. Here are some highlights.
- 5 million people in the U.S. were adopted.
- 94% of Americans view adoption favorably (see? not everyone hates adoption).
- Most birth parents are not teenagers.
- Once the adoption is finalized, birth parents cannot reclaim the baby.
