My Thoughts

I have lots of questions and thoughts running through my brain. (which is probably why I haven't been sleeping very well lately)

My plan is to list out these questions and then deal with them in separate posts. I may add to this post as I think of other questions.

1. My thoughts on fostering and if I would do it again.

2. Now that we've experienced two kids, do we want another one?

3. If not, can I really parent an only child?

4. If so, where from? (domestic, international - what country)

5. If so, when? Can we afford it? (remember - we are a Dave Ramsey family now - NO DEBT)

6. Why I don't think we did anything special fostering Baby A.

7. What do I want to be when I grow up? :)

8. Could I be a SAHM? Could we afford it?

Just catching up on your blog.
I have so many of the same questions running through my head lately. Baby # 2 is a big decision, and now you've had a taste of what it is like to have more than one child. Looking forwad to your next couple of posts.

Those are deep questions. I am an only child and now I am going to have two. I know it is what we want, but yst it will be an adjustment and a challenge. But, I know in my heart we have so much love to give and it will be good for Savannah and all of us.

Being a SAHM is the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. It takes sacrifice (of course) and some days you are ready to break, but then you get a kiss or a hug or a look or just something that reminds you why you do it and why you have children. To me, I wouldn't have it any other way, but I know many people who feel differently. Beyond finances and "have to," it is a personal decision and only you know if it is right for you and your family.

Good luck with these questions and your future decisions. Your head, heart, and faith will lead you to your destiny.
