If something should happen to my husband and me together, what will become of our children? We have only one close blood relative. She would feel it her "duty" because of "blood ties" to take them, but we feel that she's incapable of rearing happy, well- adjusted children. Also the advancing age of this relative would almost certainly mean a second change of homes before our little ones reached maturity, and we want to avoid a series of foster homes. And more important, wo want to keep all our children together. We have no close friends whose families are smalt enough to take our brood in addition to their own. We've considered an adoption agency, but our children are now past the age most adoptive parents prefer. We've provided for their education (un- Yours Is thc first! tf any of mv readers has faced this problem and solved it, I would appreciate hearing from you. Troubled? Write to Abby.
