Hi there. We have one child, currently 3.5 years, and are going to be expanding our family via adoption, probably late this year. We're finalizing paperwork now, and must answer the question about whether we'd consider twins.
Now, if we were to get pg with twins, we'd probably be a bit freaked out but happy, too, and we'd rise to the occasion. You just get what you get, and you find the happiness therein. But it's a somewhat different matter to *choose* a challenging situation, like twins.
The kids will be 4 years apart. What do you all think? Would we be insane to take on twin infants? Would it be too hard on the first child? Should we let some other family, perhaps with much older kids or no kids at all take on this challenge instead of us?
I know this is, on some level, a ridiculous question -- every family is different, and no one can tell us what's right for us -- but you all at least have experience with multiples, so I'd respect anything you had to say on the subject.
Thanks for sharing your experiences!
