The hardest decision I've ever made
I need some support.
We are turning down the chance to adopt one of our daughter's older siblings. There are many reasons for this, some I won't go into, but among them are the girl's significant special needs and attachment issues. We just don't feel like we can handle them, and it's not fair to our barely one year old daughter to take all the time and attention away from her. We feel like the older sister needs to be the only or youngest child in a family. In our state we'd also have to hide our family until the adoption was completed, which given all the factor involved could take a year or more.
I know, absolutely know, we've made the right decision for this child and our family. But I feel incredibly guilty. I want the girls to be together. I also love the older sister.
