Resources for couples and families waiting to adopt a first child or subsequent child. While I only have first hand experience with domestic infant adoption, these resources are applicable to international adoption as well. If you are currently in the waiting pool for an adoption, I wish you the best of luck and lots of prayers through this process. Even under the best of circumstances, waiting to adopt is a challenging emotional roller coaster.

Additional resources for couples and families waiting to adopt
After waiting months or years for THE CALL, the actual adoption process often happens very quickly. Having a bedroom ready for your new child proves extremely valuable. The task of preparing a bedroom also gives you something to do during the wait, which can be very helpful.
There are a ton of resources about what to include in an adoption profile. Arguably, it’s equally important to exclude certain information as well.
I also have a resource about how to make your adoption profile stand out from the crowd.
Additionally, I have a resource that covers what birth moms look for in adoption profiles.
