For the last three years, around this time of year, I’ve sent away for an information packet about adopting a child from Rwanda. I want to do this.
I also think about having another baby. I want to do this too.
What is stopping me…
1. We don’t have dental insurance.
WAIT!!!! I’m not being sarcastic!! For some reason, I feel like we can not bring any more children into our home unless the entire family is regularly visiting the dentist every six months.
For me, it’s like the bridge between being a good parent and being a “Flying by the seat of your pants” kind of parent. And the later kind can’t have fourth babies and adopt children from Africa in my book.
I know this is irrational. This is a totally made up rule. But this is the bottom line for me. How do I move this line?
