    Adopting a child

    My husband and I are unable to have children. We are slowly getting our feet wet in this process, I am wondering if there is anyone on here that may have adopted a child and could give us some advice or maybe even recommend a good agency.

    LC, you are in Canada, so I can't really advise anything (because it's probably somewhat different down there), but from experience of several people I know it's a lengthy process here in US so get lots of patience. Also if you decide to go with international adoption be very careful, because some countries are very dishonest about the information (unfortunately). In any case I wish you best luck and have a smooth and (possibly) fast adoption process!

    I had a friend whose family adopted a son back when I was in elementary school. It was a very lengthy process for them, I think it took four or so years.. but it was worth it to them. He does have fetal alcohol syndrome, but they've done well in caring for him and giving what he needs... I believe he's 10 or 11 now. :)

    I don't have much for advice, but good luck with the process and I hope you don't have quite as long of a waiting period! :) I also want to adopt some day, but that's far in the future.

    I had a cousin that was adopted-she had a wonderful life & was very loved.
