Singlemomdating net dating someone with special needs
I have a friend whose child was born with Downs Syndrome.
She has medical appointments and specialists, but she transports him and she pays for everything that insurance does not cover. We noticed it as early as toddlerhood; my cousin not only talks him through his anxieties but has paid for the counseling that insurance would not.
As a single mom, there isn’t a lot of opportunity to meet single men. Babysitter time is precious and not to he wasted on a lame first date. While I refuse to share much about my child’s story even on an anonymous blog, I will state that there are very good reasons why his biological mother is incapable of parenting him now or ever.
Online dating makes sense right now, but I’m not ready to make the leap. There are so many hard truths in adoption, in any adoption, but one hard truth that I do not have to deal with is that there was no possibility for my child to be with his biological mother.
My real concern here is what is the message we are sending to our children when we accept state subsidies after they have been adopted.Come on, Reuters, quit trying to create controversy. Dear Christian who wishes to “save” an orphan, did you not realize it would be difficult? How often did you really thank your parents before you were an adult? You may be called by God, but when is God’s calling easy? Isn’t He the potter that molds and kneads and fires the clay? Didn’t the very people he came to show God’s love, the people he came to save, reject him, ridicule him, torture him…? Those who need love the most are often the most difficult to love. It is not easy, but anything worth having has a cost.Children are wonderful at revealing our weaknesses, the areas where we need growth. (And now I get really edgy) why would you assume that adoption would fit easily into your life and your family? Yes, in many ways, adopting a baby would be easier on you, but is God’s call ever easy? The fact is that there is not a need for families to adopt healthy infants. It will cost you time, energy, money, patience, everything you are. For some people, they want to “give it some time” and try the “natural way” before they consider adoption, IVF, surrogacy, etc. I think I’ve finally reached a point where I have a good idea what I want. I’ve dated every race, all educational levels, and men with a wide-range of careers.I am ashamed to admit it, but my stomach dropped and I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it.
It took only a couple of minutes though for me to remember that it is the right thing, the best thing for Mijo.
Whether you adopt a kid or birth a kid, you don’t know what their immediate or long-term health will be.
