I am feeling quite excited today because I will be hopefully meeting up in the near future with two other sets of prospective adopters to talk about adoption with them. They are both friends of friends. I think the more people start to know someone who has adopted successfully, the more people will start to think that this is something that they too can do. Word of mouth if you like. I know how helpful it was for me to meet other adopters and their children when we were going through the process the first time round and I really want to offer that to other people. Knowing you are not alone in this crazy and intense process and that there is a wonderful outcome at the end really kept me going during the darker days when I felt exposed and vulnerable and frustrated. Adoption Champions are more than simply promoting adoption I think. It's about supporting as well. I love meeting other adopters!!!
