I found out that I cannot have children and so my husband and I have decided to foster to adopt children. We are about 3/4 of the way through the classes to become approved. I was looking online and saw that lots of people have "foster showers". Much like a baby shower but just more or less the necessities that you would need for the age range that you would like which we want newborn-2 years old. So I brought this idea up to my mom and best friend and both pretty much blew me off. I was really really hurt. It's not even about the material things. Its just that if I were pregnant everyone would be jumping to throw baby showers and buy cute little things for the baby. But since I am fostering or adopting its like I am expected to take things that people have already used and tossed aside. Its not even that I expect to have nice things. But if I were pregnant I would be able to pick out what I want. Instead I have to settle for off brand diapers that susie didnt use. Or off brand bottles that sara got at her shower but wouldnt dare use. That sort of thing. How to I deal with this?
