As a mother with life-long depression, raising my own children is difficult, but I did it and they are good, grown up adults now. If I could not have raised my own flesh and blood, however, how could I have possibly have raised some one else's? Especially the older children who are needing to be adopted. Those most sad of all little children, the ones who have been abused and/or neglected and now are cursed with their own depression. How could a mother (so down in her own life) possibly care for a child whose life someone else may have already ruined. Very beautiful and altruistic to think those little kids "NEED" us. In the real world, they need very strong, very capable, very normal parents, not those of us who may only WISH we could "fix them."
If we could "fix them", why can't we "fix" ourselves. This is very deep, folks. Very deep. Adoption by already depressed people is no joke.
