Three years ago, my husband and I started the adoption process. I distinctly remember the information session we attended on December 7, 2013. I still have my information packet with hand written notes about the different programs!
As I sat in a room with approximately 40 other people, I quickly realized that the adoption process was just that, a process. I also quickly understood why it was a process; these children deserve every background check, finger print, and home inspection asked of us.
