Congratulations on growing your family! The adoption has now been finalized and I’m sure you and you’re thinking, “now what?”
While you have already done quite a bit of research and paperwork throughout the adoption process, there are just a few more things that will require your attention. Below are a few things you’ll want to make sure you take care of after your child’s adoption is finalized.
