The adoption process is daunting. Domestic adoption can be confusing, expensive, unfair…these are words we have heard to describe the process of adoption. While I tend to agree, I would also add life changing, amazing and miraculous. There is a lot of negative press in the news, online and in general. It is hard for some to believe it will ever happen for them just based on what “they have heard.”
I have said many times that adoption is about making a succession of good choices. You can adopt in a reasonable period of time if you make good decisions. It is so important to stay positive while pursuing adoption. Here is a helpful blog to get you headed in the right positive direction!
There is nothing more important than feeling supported in this process. Your spouse, parents, friends-whomever it is you lean on needs to be supporting you. If you need additional support, find a local support group. In Orlando we have the www.OrlandoAdoptionNetwork.com. Their support is invaluable to those who seek it. You cannot go wrong connecting with others in the same boat as you!
