This is number three for us! Our first two are 3yo twin boys. They'll be four by the time this bean gets here. We're 29 now, and when we're 30 we're planning on starting the adoption process for a girl from China. We'd like #3 and #4 to be close in age.
Our original plan was to have two, a biological baby and an adopted baby. Ian and James were born with special needs, though, so we decided they'd be our "bonus babies" and we'd go ahead and try for the other two we had planned. I would have felt so strange if we hadn't. It sounds weird, but I've felt the presence of this baby and my adopted girl for a long time. Deciding not to get pregnant or adopt after Ian and James would have felt like abandoning the next two. Maybe it's just that I'd been planning these next two for so long, I don't know. Anyone else feel that way? That you have a set number of children waiting to come to you? It's a very strong feeling....
Congrats to all of you! #3 should be interesting, because that'll mean I'll run out of space in double strollers, double shopping carts, etc. This new babe is going to be a bjorn/sling baby for quite a long time!
