My husband and I are in the process of adopting and two and a half weeks ago we were approved. I'm a little nervous, excited, scared, and anxious all at once. I want to be able to show my child as much love as my heart will let me. I know that he/she may feel a loss because they are not with their birthparent but I want to help take some of that pain away. I want to be the best mother that I can be and I want him/her to grow up knowing how much he/she is loved and wanted. I have read a lot of comments from adoptees and it seems that some of them feel abandoned by their birthparents and I can fully understand that, but what can I do to help my child (once we get him/her) know that I am here for him/her and to help him/her go through that pain whenever it comes up?
