Thank you for sharing this. I am currently breastfeeding my 10 month old adopted child. We were lucky to get her at only 17 days old. She was a surprise, so no "prep", but after 6 months I was able to meet all of her needs at the breast (no more formula, Yea!). Hard work? YES! Worth it? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Hello- What a great reference for adoptive mothers, and congratulations on your personal success. I am sure adopting families will find your story an inspiration. Your common sense approach and emphasis on nurturing and expectations is priceless. I applaud your sensitivity and insight. I do think mothers may benefit from the use of high-grade double electric pumping systems to encourage best milk production. This recommendation of course must be applied within a woman's whole picture, and if financially not possible such a recommendation is worse than useless. OTOH, if we as supporters of adoptive mothers convince insurers and adoption agencies that a high-grade pump is the standard, then this tool becomes available to all. Thanks for you wonderful work Stevie Balch RN, IBCLC
