I’ve been working on my adoption book during my daughter’s early-morning driver’s ed– might as well get something useful done as long as I’m forced to be up. I’m hoping some of you might be willing to help me a bit with this project by giving me some feedback now and then!
Today’s question is related to the early stage of the adoption process. I’m interested in hearing how you decided where to adopt from and what type of child to adopt. Did you adopt domestically or internationally, an infant or an older child, a child with special needs, or maybe even a sibling group? I’d love to hear some of the thoughts that went through your head during that time and how you narrowed it down and made the choice for your family. Were there people who spoke into your life at crucial times? What helped make your decision clear?
I hope to quote some of you in my book, and if I choose to use your words, I’ll email you to ask you how you’d like to be named: full name, first name, anonymous, or whatever you prefer. Thanks in advance for any insight you can give me.
Here are some links to our adoption story if you’re interesting in reading how we made some of those decisions for our family!
