One of the reasons I placed my son was so that he would have an extended family. It always bothered me that I had so few aunts, uncles and cousins. Being the oldest child in my family, I knew it would be quite awhile before the baby I was pregnant with in 1991 had any biological cousins.

So let's fast forward a few years. Now I have my daughter and she has a handful of cousins, but all the ones on my side of the family live far away and we only see them when I make the effort to go to them.

Not exactly the idea of extended family I had in mind and wanted for the child I would raise.
