I remember when we had to do our home study. God sent us the perfect social worker to do the interview. She had personally adopted 12 children, six of them had down syndrome. I thought, wow, I could never do that. She must be like Mother Teresa or something. She had also dealt with International adoption and had a lot of insight into the process. Although she did not want to discourage us from adopting (she was clearly passionate about it), she told us the TRUTH and spoke of things that no one else seemed to be talking about when it came to adoption. I'm so grateful for that.
I just read one of the best adoption posts from an amazing mother named Jody who just adopted twin 2 year old from Ethiopia. I don't know her but I was directed to her site from another blog buddy. I was really affected by her post. You have to read it! Let me know what you think.
