Thoughts today

So, writing it down yesterday, about adopting or having a second child has got me thinking. Are there any programs for me to look into these days?! I'm quite saddened over the fact that I can't go back to China. So, I'm sort of starting to look at Vietnam and Taiwan. However, there are a lot of places that won't take singles, even in those countries where they allow singles to adopt. I guess, it is a numbers thing, but I'm not sure. In any case, it sucks.

It's not that I want to bring a brother or sister home for Mia right now. But I'd like to have that option and maybe start the process this year... assuming it will take 2+ years to complete the process again. Oh, and did I mention I'd want a child under the age of 1 year old again? Sort of feels impossible right now.

But if God wants it to happen, it will. I am sure of that.

Oh, and I called one local agency and they do allows singles to foster/adopt. But they want you to take a child that is 8+ years old. I'd consider it, but am just not sure right now.

Peace.

  1. I've been looking into domestic adoption. I've been reading a few blogs of singles who've adopted domestic. I have also chatted with a few agencies. It sounds like, if you are open to race, you can have a newborn within a really, really short period of time. Feel free to e-mail me. Here are the links if you are interested:

  3. Maybe countries like Czech Republic or Slovakia will become an option for you once America fully ratifies the Hague convention and US agenices begin programs here? I'm single and adopted here in Slovakia and I understand that they do allow singles to adopt internationally, but you must apply thru a Hague certified agency. I'm planning on a second adoption too, and I wish you success in your journey.
