I think I'm every kind of Mom there is!? I'm a biological Mom to my 2 boys N-10 and B-6 and adoptive Mom of special needs dd L-2. I was a foster Mom and 2 weeks ago gave birth to a baby girl via gestational surrogacy.
But this journel is to write about my dh journey into a vasectomy reversal.
As a mod over at the informational and wonderful online support www.AdoptiveParentsNetwork.com I was perfectly happy to adopt again. My dd Bmom may end up pregnant with a 9th baby, she's only 40 and could very well have years left of fertility. But dh is exhausted from the state's involvement with dd before her adoption could FINALLY finalize after a year. So he's contacting Urologist first thing tomorrow morning to see about a time line and cost for the surgery. I've seen from $7000.00-$10,000.00. That's a lot to my very frugile hubby (and us a as a blue collar family) but it hasn't detoured him yet. I don't know how he'll ever manage to take time off of work to heal. When self-employed it's almost impossible to rest for an entire 24 hours and his job can be very physical.
He's even passed on his work ethic to my kids who spend a lot of time creating art for their Non-profit art store that benefits foster kids like their baby sister who didn't have a family and now does. www.SmithBuildingServices.com
They are very sweet kiddos and I can't wait to give birth or adopt another...or TWO
