Help! We're Adopting
Many adoptive parents can attest that the adoption journey often presents a myriad of challenges, especially early on. This is why it is so very critical for those in the waiting phase as well as those who are still in the ‘honeymoon’ period to begin to get prepared, get connected, stick together and maintain the proper perspective.
This article, Help! We’re Adopting, from the August 2009 issue of Adoption Today magazine, focuses on how you can do just that. The article also features Scott McClellan (another AdoptiveDads.org contributor), his wife, Annie, and their precious little girl, Elise. Scott and Annie really took to heart the need to find support and helpful resources early on in their adoption process, and as a result they are well prepared for any twists and turns they may encounter as their journey unfolds.
Let us hear from you. Tell us what worked for you as you got prepared, stayed connected, stuck together and maintained your perspective – or how you are in the process of doing these things.
