Preferences? And Adoption Update
Some people have recently asked me about our adoption preferences. (For those that don't know what I mean: it's what type of child we prefer to adopt) To be honest, we really don't have a preference for a child. Of course we would like a child that looks more like us so that they don't feel different. And every parent wants a healthy baby. We choose not to discriminate. If God leads us to a child that is a different race or has special needs we are more than ok with that. Yes we know that special needs children need more attention, but that is one of the reasons why I chose to be a stay at home mom. In our profile we list our preferences as: Open to : premies, drug exposed children, children with certain stds(that can be treated with medication), children with asthema and children with developemental delays. The ONLY specific preference we have is that we get a child from newborn-three months. We really want as much of the full experience as parents as we can get. We know that any child we are placed with will be special to us and loved far beyond imaginable! As far as the process goes right now, we looked into a special needs adoption site today and we still have our profile on http://www.hopingtoadopt.org/index.php/family/letters/342 we still haven't found that special bundle of joy just yet but we hope we find him/her soon!!!! Thanks to everyone that continues to follow our journey and pray for us! We really appreciate it!!!!
