couple_on_laptopHere are seven action items to take during your adoption journey:

  1. Know your adoption budget, and be open to other resources to help fund your adoption plan.
  2. Be honest with yourselves and be honest with your Adoption Coordinator about your specific openness toward the type of child you hope to adopt and are will to adopt.
  3. Educate yourself about the adoption process and learn all you can. It will give you more peace of mind too. 
  4. Commit to being dedicated to your specific adoption plan and steps as well as your role in your adoption success.  
  5. Know exactly what your “next steps” will be and set deadlines to take them. You are in control!
  6. Remember to live a balanced life before a new child enters your family. Take time for yourself and as a couple if married. 
  7. Be patient and realize adoption can take time. 

Think about how much you’re willing to put into your adoption. Your adoption plan in action will soon become a way of life for you.
