Today I’m going to talk about something very very serious.
Yup. That’s a huge word isn’t it? Well by law, you must be 18 years or older to adopt and 21 years old to foster. In my personal opinion, it really should be the other way around…or have both age limits be 18.
I’ve been seriously considering adoption. I know how big of a step it is, I know the money it will cost. I’ve done all the research on it so I’ve prepared myself. All I have to do next is make the call to DSHS to set up an appointment and start the adoption process. (Actually, to fill out paperwork to see if Chris & I are “fit” to adopt)
I can’t explain why I need this. It is so important to me and will complete my family. Also, the thought of giving a baby a warm home filled with lots of love, food and attention makes me so happy. I am 20 years old (21 in 9 months) who owns a home, (almost) married, great job, money in the bank, lots of support, and a happy life…just one thing missing.
What do you think? Any advice? Any tips? Thoughts?
