I don't dwell on this, but I would be lying if I told you these concerns of mine never tug at my heart.
With Baby Joy's impending birth, this is what I ponder in my heart...
* Stan's reaction now and in the future. How will he feel being the only adopted one? Where I know and David knows that he is one of us, we will have never walked in his shoes.
* Will he react differently to a sister compared to a brother. Will he ever feel "less than" a son born biological rather than born from the heart? (And I'm talking about the viewpoint of an adopted child.)
* These and other questions.
We would love to have some resources that someone highly recommends about this topic, someone who has been there, done that.
I do know one thing, as long as we (the family) always ask God to put the words needed on our hearts, we will not be misguided. Stan will always know our love.
