This is the title that this AP chose for her post on an adoption board... very sad.
Please thoughts and prayers for this child.
I recently adopted a 6-year-old from China, my 3rd child. The whole
family was part of the decision, as my older daughters had long wanted a
little sister. My partner actually selected the “waiting child” we
adopted. The transition has had typical difficulties: temper tantrums
at first, sleeping problems, communication issues with English as a
second language, and sibling jealousy. What I was not prepared for was
for my partner to decide that “this is too much trouble; give the child
back.” Of course, I’m not willing to do that. Has anyone else
experienced anything like this? How did you deal with it?
