DSM3KIDZ Posted July 20, 2006 Report Share Posted July 20, 2006 When I was healthy my husband and I planned on having 4 or 5 children. We have 3 now and they are such a joy. My pregnancies were good except for first 3 months so I always figured once I get this illness under control we would have more children I'm only 29 and who knows what could happen in the next few years.My husband and family decided for "my health" I shouldn't subject my body to anymore pregnancies. I got sick when my son was 7months so who knows if that has anything to do with it. So I didn't have much choice in the matter since it's not my body but I do know my husband felt bad and angry this illness disrupted our family plans. But he still got a vasectomy.So now their is talk about adoption in the future, I am completely interested but wonder if any of you have adopted once dx with a chronic illness?I told my husband if I get my health back he'll be making an appointment for a very expensive reversal. He wasn't too happy to hear that while he lay with an ice pack on his package Actually I feel maybe this is all part of the plan for my life. I am a wonderful mom who could give a child a loving family and happy life.So if anyone has any experience with this or any stories of anyone with a chronic illness who adopted I'd be interested to hear them. I'm in no position to adopt now but theirs no harm in hoping.Dayna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
