Understanding the Adoption Process

If you are considering adoption you have probably already thought a lot about your choices, and spent a reasonable amount of soul searching. Before moving forward it is necessary to have a good working knowledge of the adoption process. Ask yourself the following:

• Do you understand the adoption process?
• What questions do you still have?
• What impact do you expect adoption to have on your relationship, family and friends?
• What considerations went into your choice for ages, gender, ethnicity, and physical condition of your desired child?
• What motivated you to pursue an adoption?
• Have you grieved the loss of having a biological child?
• Are you prepared for the risk involved?
• Are you prepared financially?
• Are you prepared emotionally?
• Are your expectations realistic?
