We are stuck in a bit of an awkward situation. Our son's birthmom (whom we have a very open relationship with - we talk several times a week) has several children that she is currently solo parenting. She then had our son and placed him with us, and then a few months later became pregnant again. She is still undecided about what she wants to do. She is very open to the idea of placing this child with us as well (if she placed the child she would want her with us), but as it will for sure be her last (permanent birth control is the plan) she is also leaning toward parenting.
We are ok with either outcome. But, it leads to awkward conversations because she hasn't made up her mind yet. I'm also very concerned about the effect this will have on our son. How do you explain to a child that he's the only one of a largish number of children that was placed for adoption. :( It breaks my heart to think of him having to wrestle with that.
Anyone else in a similar situation?
