Are You Acting on Impulse?

  • Before you move forward, you need to pinpoint why you are pursuing adoption. Are you getting involved for the right reasons? Understanding the WHY in this decision will allow you to more effectively meet the needs of your child as you move forward.
  • Do you have realistic expectations of adoption as well as of your future child? These are important elements to wrestle through as these things will certainly impact your child’s view of themselves and their worth/value.
  • Pray about your decision. Ask if this is the right path for you or if there are other ways you may be called to care for waiting children.
  • Seek advice from people who have travelled this path before you. Learn from their experience and gather knowledge about how to best move forward.
