Quoting Yurvon [♥]:" How did you guys deal with the first birthday? Ethans is coming up and I seriously dont know how I ... [snip!] ... I dont want anymore kids. I dont want to go through getting another abortion, adoption or raising another kid single again. "
getting your tubes tied!
What kind of birth control are you on? I wouldn't want to get my tubes tied (especially this young) because it changes the hormones in your body. I'm on Mirena and like it a lot. I was on Yasmin when I got pregnant with my son (he is 6 months old). You know all too well the feeling of being in an unwanted pregnancy.
Claire's first birthday was really hard on me. I cried a lot, my mom sent me a LB of chocolate from See's Candy, I cried some more. I was really upset because her family hadn't kept in contact with us like they promised. Her birthday is August 16th and I hadn't received an email from them since June. In the last email from them they said we could come out and see her for her birthday...but then didn't return an email after that until after her birthday. Things are weird like that sometimes. Needless to say, I didn't get to see her. I sent them an email on her birthday that said "I couldn't let this day pass without sending a note saying Happy Birthday Claire and Congrats to all of us for making it through a year. I love you all!
Kiss Claire for me
I got this back
"So glad to hear from you! We thought about you alot today and are aware of how much pain you have gone through to bring us so much happiness.
Take care of yourself"
Claire's birth father and I were together until she was about 9 months old and then we broke up. My life got so hectic over the next few months that it was like I didn't even have time to think about her birthday but I was expecting something much different from her adoptive family that day.
