Leah + Learning about Adoption = TOTALLY OVERWHELMED
This week, I've been searching the internet through endless websites trying to learn about adoption. I've read articles, reviews, FAQ's, and requested more information packets, then I will ever know what to do with. Over the course of the coming months, I will be posting periodically about our experience with learning about adoption. Hopefully, it will be a happy time for us, although I started off today with a rejection letter right off the bat. Apparently, for this particulary agency (All Gods Children International) you have to have 5 years in remission, which as you know, I dont yet. So, one down 600 billion agencies left to go. Okay, that's a little over the top. Actually, so far there are about 3 options I am looking into. One is a private agency out of San Antonio, one is LDS Family Services, and the other is adopting through the State.
There are so many scam artists out there just waiting to pounce on those searching for adoption agencies and I just dont know how to go about making sure you choose the right one. I guess I'll be relying on faith for that one. Part of me is so excited to start working towards adding a baby to our little family, and the other part is terrified of the letdown, if it never happens. I guess that's the risk we have to be willing to take! We should be seeing the information packets here in the next couple days... Stay tuned for more.
