A happy, successful adoption journey begins with a family who is educated about the adoption process.
You will become empowered because of your knowledge and will display more confidence. This will go a long way with your Social Worker, Agency, Attorney and most of all the birth family you select.
Your personal Adoption Consultant will address many adoption issues that families are not aware of and will help prepare your family for all of the ups and downs in adoption.
Your Consultant will be your guide through the maze of information from professionals, agencies and the internet. Adoption will change your lives forever …. you will move from being a couple to being a family of three or more. You should become totally involved in every aspect of your adoption. You need to know the areas you can control and the areas you cannot control. Adoption education is the most important aspect of the process and a personal Adoption Consultant can be your guide, cheerleader and reality checker.
Debra has nearly 30 years of adoption experience. Her advice and guidance will be invaluable to you. There is not a whole lot she has not seen in the adoption arena!
You will place yourselves far ahead of other prospective adoptive parents. You will have your personal Consultant to lean on and seek advice from. When you are empowered with the knowledge Debra will bring to you, your agency or attorney will find you to be “an easy family to work with” and will likely present you with more opportunities.
The fees paid to an Adoption Consultant will pale in comparison to the money you will save by becoming an educated, adoption savvy, “empowered” adoptive parent.
You will learn appropriate adoption language and how to talk with your birth family. This is a daunting thought, but possibly one of the best experiences you will have in adoption if you are properly prepared.
Your personal Adoption Consultant will keep you from trying to put a square peg into a round hole. Many times adoptive parents become so emotionally involved in a situation that they are unable to see, or just don’t want to see that “it just is not right”.
There is never a guarantee that you will be successful in your adoption journey, having a personal Consultant will give you an edge that others just don’t have.
