 How long did the process take? Did you have to be a foster parent to her first? Just asking because I have to adopt my biological daughter back and the paperwork is outstanding.

It took us almost a year. We did not have to be a foster parent first. We did a private adoption. There is a lot of paperwork but just remember it's worth it :)

Can you have kids on your own? If not I'm sorry. How old was your dd when you adopted her? Are you going to let her know she was adopted when she gets older?

No I can not. We took her home 3 days after she was born and she is 17 now and knows she was adopted. We send her birth mother a scrap book every year :)
