I have just binged this forum for a few days reading all of your advice. I think my husband and I would like to adopt, we are relocating to be close to our support network (family, we are really close to our family and we cannot wait!). No one in my family has adopted so it’s very new to us.
Just a bit about us, im 26 and just finishing off my PhD. I’m starting a job in September which is permanent. My husband is 30 and works in healthcare, we’ve been together for 8 years and married for 2. We have no children of our own and we would be able to provide a stable home for a child / children. We are going to go to an adoption evening but have a few questions.
We’re very open to ages, how did you come to the decision on what age group to go with? We are also open to sibling adoptions.
How did you decide to adopt? We are interested in concurrent planning / fta because I have a lot of experience pre PhD with young mothers and addicted babies so this route interests us, im just not sure it’s available in our new area.
How can we best prepare to see if adoption is for us? As far as we are aware we don’t have fertility issues, we’re considering adoption as a first choice.
How long are you excepted to have off work?
Thank you and happy to answer any further questions people have.
Thinking of adopting. Advice wanted
