Deciding who is the best fit to raise your baby is a HUGE decision. I have no idea what your criterion is, but if it were me I’d want a couple that:
Knows how to fight. Conflict is normal and there are good and not-so-good ways to deal with it. We can barely agree on what day it is, but we also know that most of our conflicts are unimportant in the larger scheme of things. The larger disagreements are discussed once we’ve cooled off. We talk. We talk some more. We come to an agreement…. then sometimes we have to talk some more. Lol
Wants to parent. Having a child and parenting a child are two different things. It’s hard. We both have nephews and godkids. There are going to be days that are amazing and days that make you want to hurt someone. The key seems to be understanding that “there will be days like this” and not making a bad event, day, or string of days the thing(s) that you focus on.
Has a good sense of humor. Life is stressful, and tiring, and ugh! Being able to laugh at yourself, situations, and each other makes life so much easier.
