I.E. Artificial Twinning....
Yep, I read an article on this a while back...HERE
And As for me, I've never been one to SEEK out having twins an any fashion. My sister has twin boys, who are 4 yrs old now, and i think how hard it was/is for her. BUT, I also think HOW AWESOME to have a built in playmate and best bud! I also know that the first year will be tough but, who cares- it's a few years and LOVE is forever. So, I'd get a few extra bags under my eyes or a few wrinkles will deepen. So, will the parts of our heart- have a deeper love!
Every child deserves a loving father and mother- 2 parents that can serve, live and love them in a comfortable home. Parents should never resent a child, feel obligated or like they made a mistake by either adopting or getting pregnant. A child is NOT a toy, a meal ticket, a write-off, a burden, a bargaining piece in someone's messed up relationship and so forth. Children are precious however and whenever they come into your family! So, Would I be up for 2 and do the adoption twinning thing?...
If God Grants it to be so and we have the finances and space- absolutely! Call me crazy, maybe?
But, Having regular twins is hard and having adoption twins is hard- either way- having 2 is just not the same as having 1! When windows seem to open up for couples to adopt twins, 2 from overseas, or 2 domestically that are close in age- DO IT if it's Right For You!
As Adults we know our limits, our capacity to love and our ability to serve our kids and husbands. But we forget that God Knows us Better than we Know ourselves! He knows what we can handle and He knows what GOOD will come out of not the easiest of situations!
With Foster care and Blended Families there is a lot of "false twins". And I think as long as parents have their heads screwed on straight- things will be fine! It's not like having Twins is a new thing in this world, anyway!
And I give high Kudos to ALL parents of twins and multiples in however fashion they come into your families!
Now, Adoptive Parents & Birth Parents- I'd love to here YOUR comments on this topic. What do you think of Adoption/ Artificial Twinning? Birthmoms- did you or would you place with someone who has baby close in age to your due date? How do you feel about couples who adopt more than once in 8 months?
