    Adopting a second time

    As I have said before, baby fever has hit our household hard. We are planning on becoming parents' & sister in waiting soon. I am exciting about starting the adoption experience again, but I have that nervous feeling in the bottom of my stomach. One minute I feel like we are so ready to have another child and the next I am scared to death. I know this is all normal. I felt the same way before Grace Ann was born, but I really didn't think that I would have those same feelings a second time around. My biggest fear is we have such a great relationship with Grace Ann's bparents, what will happen if we have the same kind of relationship with our next child's bparents. I know that sounds silly. I hope and pray that we are able to have a very open adoption with our second child's family, but I don't want to do anything that would jeopardize our relationship with Grace Ann's family. I guess I feel protective of them since they were our first. How do those of you with more than one birthfamily do it? How do you continue the old relationship while nurturing a new one? I know that I am just rambling and I know everything will work out the way it is intended, but it is these thought that keep me up at night !!

    Questions About Medical Bills?

    I can attest to higher medical cost. Chris' recent appendectomy was sky high. We owe the hospital and various doctors a lot after our really good insurance covered most of the bill. The insurance person at the hospital told me gone are the days of 100% coverage on anything.
