Our first agency was no-joke with the adoption education. They did an amazing job preparing us for what is to come.
I’m not so naive to think we can be thoroughly prepared, but I believe we can prepare. And we should. As much as possible . . . as should all pre-adoptive parents. I don’t want to get all preachy on you, but if your agency simply required you to watch ten hours of videos, it’s not enough. I want to encourage you to find the time, find the books, find the resources, buy the videos (Karyn Purvis’ especially) and prepare yourself NOW. You owe it to your future children and to your current family. Get ready.
