Having a mini-stress out...

I'm so excited to be able to adopt. It will give me the chance to have the child my husband and I always wanted. So, the fees will be up to $25,000. Then I think when the baby is here, they will need "stuff". With my minimalist approach, I don't need a ton of "stuff". But, I have nothing right now for a baby. So, how am I going to have enough money for the fees, for the furniture, clothes, diapers, etc, for everything! I just thought back to the match we turned down where the lawyer had told us the birthmom would need $1,000 for maternity clothes. I think of all the clothes I could buy for $1,000! I could probably get enough clothes to buy a new outfit each day for a month! Way more than anyone would need.
So, I'm just a little stressed about the money. I know that we are making good progress in our saving...it's just never going to be enough.
I just need to calm down, breathe and things will be alright. Everything will work out....eventually.
