I Will Be There To Raise Our Child
I Will Be There To Raise Our Child

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for making me realize I was an idiot when I was in my twenties!  I thought I could have it all, being a working mom when I was ready.  Thankfully, I didn't have children at that time, but I realized my thinking on this issue was wrong.  I came to that conclusion after hearing someone I know who was complaining about her husband say, "at least my baby is always happy to see me when I come home from work!"  Of course!  Her baby is happy to see her because he missed his mother all day!  The switch flipped in my head then and there.

I am now 35 and cannot have a biological child due to health issues, but my husband is amazing, and we plan on adopting a child soon.  Thanks to you, I will be there every day to love, nurture, encourage and teach our child.  Our child will never be where he or she is not loved all day and I will never have the guilt of abandoning him or her when they need me most.  

Thank you for giving our future child and our family such a powerful gift.



Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
