Hello everyone,

I just joined this group. I plan to start the process toward adoption this summer. I'm going to be going through DSHS and am looking to adopt a girl around the age of 6. This is the first group I've found and just want to have a resource for any questions I may have. :)

Welcome! We have several moms in here that have adopted through Foster Care so you will definitely find answers to any questions you have.

Welcome!  We are also looking to adopt through DHS and are currently foster parents (fostering in hopes to adopt).  This is a great group to relate with women in the ups and downs of adoption.

Welcome! My husband and I adopted our son this past summer after fostering him for a little over two years. He's 5yo now, and the light of our lives. :-)

Do you have any other children? Best wishes to you as you investigate and begin the process. This group has been a great support and resource for me, I hope you find the same.

I don't have any other children. I tried with an ex for about 2 years and it just never happened. Now I'm single and 31 and wanted my first kid by now. There are so many kids out there, adoption just feels right.

Thank you for all the responses. It seems I definitely found the right group. :)

Welcome! We did a fost/adopt with our DD. I really liked adopting out of foster care, it was a great experience.

Those are the reasons my DH and I decided to adopt as well.

It can take quite a while from initial inquiry to actually being licensed and then matched with a child. Let us know how you're doing! There are a number of moms here who adopted from foster care, so you can probably find advice if you need it... And definitely support!

I went through DCYF; samething differernt state. You can inbox me anytime. And Welcome. I did an open adoption of a three year old boy. First: Make sure you can get as much medical background on the child that is matched with you. The child and the childs family. Be sure to also take any availbale training and local adoption support groups.
