  • This is great information.  But please remember that though it can be a wonderful thing for the parents who adopt as well as for the parent(s) who relinquish, it’s ultimately about finding the best situation for the child involved and not the process of becoming parents.  It’s important to make the focus of adoption child-centered, which should support ALL parents. 🙂

    You are absolutely right Monika. It goes right to the heart of our mission at IAC: To ensure every child grows up feeling loved and supported.

    The reason you noticed this post being a little parent-centric is because we wrote this series of blog posts to help adoptive families cope with the wait time. A common opinion is that the most difficult part about open domestic adoption (for the adopting family) is the wait time and not knowing what do do about it. This post is a re-cap of some idea’s we came up with to help our families during this time.
