Hi there! My hubby and I have started the process to adopt/foster to adopt. I was just wondering what everyone's opinion was on how old your own children should be before you think of this. We have a 1,2 and 3 year old. Do you think they should be older before thinking on this? I know they will pick up behaviors of other children very quickly as we are hoping to adopt (or even foster) children that are a little older. How did you guys find that?
How was your transition period?
How was it once your "honeymoon" period was over? how did you cope?
Any info or story or anything would be appreciated! I have a real heart for this but I know there is a time for everything so maybe I'm pushing this too fast and should just enjoy what I have now?? My husband could take it or leave it. Nothing is really happening right now anyway.. we finished our training back in April and still have not heard anything. I emailed once with no reply.. so right now its kinda on hold until Child Welfare decides its time to continue with the process!
Thanks for reading and responding!!!
