You and your partner have finally come to the decision to adopt, or maybe you have already begun the adoption process. You are both filled with excitement.
Then the question arises: How do we tell our parents?
Becoming new parents is a joy, a blessing, and a logistical nightmare. Adoption in itself can be a complex and stressful process. Many adoptive parents look forward to breathing a sigh of relief once their newborn is home. Unfortunately, the relief can be short-lived with a baby in the house. Here are a few things to expect during the first year.
It’s common for celebrities to adopt, although it is not very often that they keep it a big secret. Some believe that Sandra Bullock’s decision to adopt an African-American baby was inspired by her role in “The Blind Side”. However, she denies that her role in the film had anything to do with her decision to adopt. Sandra says the decision to adopt had already been made when she accepted the role in the award-winning film. Here’s the story of how she and Louis became a family.
Creating an adoption profile can be one of the more intimidating parts of the adoption process. There is a lot of pressure to make it stand out amongst all the others. It is your only chance to make a great first impression.
Your newborn is finally about to arrive. The excitement is incomparable. Unfortunately for many soon-to-be parents, so is the terror.
The anticipation of newborn adoption is really an experience like no other. Adoptive parents can feel so many emotions in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the birth of their new baby. As the time draws near, many parents begin to worry. While bringing a newborn home can feel overwhelming, with love and support, there is nothing to fear.
