Just wanted some advise I guess. I have an 8 year old son, Jaidyn he has been only child for all this time and now I am expecting in January. He seems to be very excited about the new addition to our family, however I am concerned how he will be once it is reality. One think my husband and are doing is my husband has been wanting to adopt him since before we got married so that process is almost over he will officially be adopted July 22nd which I am so happy is going to be way before the baby is born that way we will all share the same last name but other than that are their ways I can make sure he does not feel that we love him any less just because this baby will need much more attention than he does? Thank you all for reading my post!!!!View Thread
Thank you very much, I hope it takes it as well as your son did!! I have since found out I am having a girl and Jaidyn's adoption is final! He was there when I found out we were having a girl and at first was sad cuz he wanted a brother but he now seems to be very excited with having to be a protective big brother. Thank you again and have a great day!View Thread
