The journey to adopting

Since I’ve been publishing quite a few blog posts in a short space of time, I thought it might be worth having a page to keep track of the journey to adoption. I’ll update it when I put on new posts!

Reaching for Hope – our journey prior to adoption

The waiting game – our attempted first step

Back on the rollercoaster – our first real progress

Stage one – background checks – as it says, really!

Love at first sight? – our first glance at some profiles

The protective prospective father – starting to claim a son

Finding out more… – learning more about our possible son

Stage two – home visits – how our past applies to our future

Approval panel – the first step to becoming a registered adopter

Matching panel – getting approval to adopt our son

Introductions… – meeting him for the first time

Celebration hearing – when it becomes legal
