Could we adopt again?
We had wanted to adopt again... but how can we afford it? A situation like Cole was a once in a lifetime event! I searched, I googled, I did a family history to see if we qualified for an adoption with the Cheifs Council with the Indian Tribe my husbands family was connected to. It all takes money. It's so frustruating! How are families suppose to be able to adopt these children when the cost is so high? Years go by, and we settle in with our little family and we try to except that this is it, and it was good, but we wanted so much more. We didn't want Cole to grow up alone, we wanted him to have siblings that he would have relationships with as he grew older. Atleast he had Dean! For anyone out there who knows the trials and expense of adoption, I know you have dealt with the same issues. It's really frustruating. You feel like you have no options out there. There are organizations out there and you can find them. It's not easy, but I don't want anyone to give up hope that they can't have their family.
