To Nurse or Not to Nurse

Who knew that would be a question for an adoptive mother? When I first heard that this was a possibility I thought it was a little weird. But the more I read about it, the more natural it seems. I was planning to nurse a biological child so why shouldn't I give my adopted child the same nutritional benefits? Also, they say that it helps for bonding with the child.

So I guess I could try it to see if I can produce something. Some adoptive mothers produce enough to sustain the child fully but most only produce a few ounces per day. Some don't produce anything. Well... guess I'm off to research!
