i am currently going through the slow, grueling process of adopting my goddaughter that has been with me since october. i grew up with five biological siblings but it's my chosen family that i'm closest to. i fully support adoption when it's a conceivable option. two of my best friends tried for nearly a decade to adopt a child and it seemed that every time they got close, something went wrong. they asked for my help, i donated eggs, aaand a year and a half later those little guys up there miraculously exist.
