Wow- that's a whole lot more prep work than any of us "natural" moms had. I always wondered why these instructions on raising kids weren't mandatory for any person over the child-bearing age, you know.
My husband has been keeping his eye on an orphanage in the Ukraine where he was several years ago. We've never officially pursued adoption (I can barely handle what is on my plate now), but have always been interested in it.
How far along is the birth mother? That's interesting- if she has a partner, why are they choosing to give the child up for adoption? I remember that ER episode with Jean Mae when she gave up her baby. That's powerful stuff!
Again, welcome. Please ignore most of the stupid stuff that goes on here. I am sooooo hoping that the moderator will switch this board over to a sign in only forum soon. Until then, be careful not to get too defensive with the posters here. Some just like to argue.
