When I went to the 6 hour orientation, and also when I read the book we were required to purchase and read, the question of how to handle those who would say I am taking the easy way out was addressed. I admit, this is something I did fret about, having had people comment that they had their children “the hard way”, as if adoption was the “easy way out”. I’m so happy that this has not happened so far. I’ve told just about everyone who is important to me, and received wonderful support from each one so far. You never know how good your friends are, or your family either, until you need to count on them for support ad non-judgement. I’m luckier than I realized.
Just a little discouraged though, which I’ll address in another post……..
