For 17 days now, we’ve been Celebrating Superheroes-in-Waiting and the 132 million children around the world just waiting for a family to call their own. And TODAY, after sharing the need and the heart behind adoption, we show you how to start.
There are three main types of adoption: international, domestic and foster-to-adopt. (For information on kinship adoption, check out https://www.childwelfare.gov/.)
On Thursday, guest blogger Ariele O’Brien shared her story of adopting twins from the foster system and offered tips for getting started on the foster-to-adopt path.
Tomorrow, our friends at Great Wall China Adoption and Children of All Nations will be sharing their tips for starting the international adoption process.
And today, our sweet friends at Amazing Grace Adoptions, the agency we used for our second China home study and the home of one of my very favorite social workers of all time, teach us what to do and how to start a domestic adoption.
Because thousands of precious birth mothers and U.S. superheroes await.
