I just got to thinking about expectant couples and meeting perspective adoptive parents....and I don't think some PAP's realize this is more than a meet and greet. This is a true interview. It should be anyway IMHO. It should be about you (the PAP) interviewing for the awsome job of being a parent.
What are some questions you would ask if you were placing your child today? Many expectant women placing a child do visit this forum and I thought they might be able to get some good advice on additional questions to ask.
I would ask: about their politics, their parenting philosophy, past traumas and how they coped, their views on sex and sexuality, spirituality, what they aruge about as a couple, diet/nutruition, activity levels, hobbies, natural talents.....so much. And I don't want one line answers. I want in depth discussions. But our advice given was to stay away from those controversial topics b/c they might not
