We have a 6yr old birth child and are in the final stages of adopting a 14 month old. Introductions to start soon. Slightly freaking out, but have been told (repeatedly) that this is totally normal! :-)
Just looking for any advice around prepping my birth child in the run up to introductions, creating some nice welcoming things, starting nice rituals and generally helping us all get very excited for our new arrival. Also any ideas for things we can do to ease transition for both kids (and us!) when the new little one arrives.
What have you found really effective and were so pleased you did?
What did you regret not doing (or doing!)?
How did you find the first few weeks of settling in?
Anything I should brace myself for with my birth child?
Thanks in advance ... and hello. I'm new here :-)
First time adopter with existing birth child. Advice welcomed...
