I found this great article about preparing for an adoption on iVillage the other day. I love the first paragraph:
“Waiting to adopt a baby is no less bewildering an experience than pregnancy. Time frames in adoptions are much more open, and you are much less in control of various extenuating circumstances – will you find a birth mother willing to put her baby up for adoption? Can you find an agency that will satisfy your needs? Just how long will it be until you can bring the child home? Successful adoptions happen every day…”
It’s a great read, and I hope it helps a bit during your wait time! 🙂
