completely understand. "It's
almost a new norm," says
psychologist Gordon. "We
have to redefine what we
mean by family. Mom, Dad
and 2.3 kids. It's obvious
that's not what the American
family is. Jenny may be angry
some day she was adopted by
a single mother. But when I
am with her, that's all there
is. It may well be that she's
getting more attention than
she might in a two parent
home."
There is no doubt that hav-
ing a husband involved in the
child rearing would make it
easier financially and emo-
tionally. No one is ruling out
the possibility of marriage in
the future. But none of the
women regret the decision to
adopt. In fact, they strongly
suggest it, as long as the
technical pitfalls and the long
wait are considered.
"It would be easier with a
partner, or with the right
partner," says Hughes.
"When the baby takes her
first steps, I'd like to have so-
meone to share it with. When
she's running a fever, it's nice
to have someone to sit up at
night and see if she's still
breathing. It's nice, however,
to make all of the choices. I
don't regret having done it
(adoption) single. If I didn't, I
wouldn't have her."
