does this happen to you?
lately, everyone is lecturing me about my adoption plans, friends, family, and even coworkers. they criticize my decision to adopt a special needs child, my plans for child care, my financial situation, etc. I keep hearing “did you think about this” or ‘‘did you consider that”. even when I explain that yes, I put considerable thought into something, and read about it, and discussed it with my social worker they don’t stop. I think maybe it’s because I"m single, but I’m not sure. does anyone else experience this? how do you handle it? I feel like I’m always defending/explaining my plans, and I hate that. I’m at the point where I’ve started not sharing my adoption updates with anyone, for fear of being criticized or lectured. advice, please!
