At this point, we would like to pause and reflect on the questions or uncertainties that may arise before the adoption, and each applicant will experience and manage them differently.
Surely we can all agree that this period is very important and is a time when you can consider everything carefully. A good piece of advice, and perhaps a well-known truth, is that experts advise parents-to-be to discuss their intentions, especially within the extended family. After all, it is critical that the future siblings, grandparents, nephews, nieces, and other relatives accept the „new“ child completely asthe family member. The same appliesto fostercare and temporary foster care. You should keep this in mind at all times.
However, we leave the final decision up to each of you, your heart, your reason, desire, ability, and courage to help. You will be the people spending every day with the child, experiencing the good and the bad with him or her. You will make the child part of your life.
You might not be able to find the answer to some of these questionsimmediately. Some of them will give you food for thought and conversation with your loved ones and professionals who will guide you through the next period.
