An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure . . . or so the saying goes. When it comes to adoption, what parents need instead of prevention is an ounce (or more) of preparation. Many adoptive parents can attest to just how critical it is to be prepared for the challenges that can arise. Likewise, these parents know the importance of staying connected, sticking together as a couple and a family and always maintaining a healthy perspective throughout the adoption journey.
Help! We’re Adopting, from the August 2009 issue of Adoption Today magazine, focuses on these important aspects of the adoption journey, offering helpful tips for those who are waiting, in the ‘adoption honeymoon’ period and beyond.
