My partner and I are 18 days away from beginning to try to conceive — as happy as I am, I’m also scared out of my mind. I’m not worried about raising a child, but I’m worried about how my first daughter will react to my pregnancy after I placed her into adoption.
I know that placing my daughter in adoption was the best decision for both of us and I’m fortunate that I have an extremely open relationship with her adoptive parents… and I know I’m not trying to replace her with this baby. I’m just worried that she’ll see my future pregnancy as a rejection of her.
