It is not a question that anyone can answer except yourself and your family. Adopting is a lovely gift to a child without parents but can also be a tough thing for another child to handle depending on how it is dealt with. 
Some parents chose not to tell there biological child while others will. I personally think it is better to tell them from the start. It is entirely up to you. If you sit your 6 year old son down and try in a way he will understand, explain to him what mommy went through, what it means. Explain to him your idea, of adopting another child, someone for him to play with...etc. You will need to let him know what will change and everything. Make sure he fully understands and see how he reacts. 
It may take some getting use. I hope this helps.

Hello, My girlfriend had tested postive for bein pregnant using a clear blue digital test. It sats she is 3+ weeks. She had unprotected sex in mid july with a male and took about 4 tests between then and the end of august. Me and her got together on the 4th of august and have always had unprotected sex but she has been on the pill. She has missed the pill on a few occasions while being with me. My question is that who is more likely to be the father? me or the other male? keeping in mind in the space of a month and a half, she had all negative tests, stopped doing tests untill today and has came back positive.

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!
