I feel fear. I'm terrified, humanly, of what might happen day in and day out. I fear not raising enough money for our adoption and to bring our baby home. I fear the hatred toward me, my family or our new son or daughter if we end up with a child who is not caucasian...because despite every good intention that we have and every bit of love we already have for this child, not everyone feels … [Read more...] about What I Want You to Know
