Parents who have adopted from foster care chimed in on this thread on the question-and-answer platform Quora. A sampling of their responses . . .
“I would say the adoption was exhausting and sometimes heartbreaking but I would do it a thousand times to have my daughter.”
“It took a very long time for everything to be sorted out.”
“It is simultaneously one of the best things that you can do for your family (especially biological kids) and the community.”
“You have to get over finding a baby that’s not drug exposed, is perfectly healthy, is white, is blond, has parents who have PhDs, etc.”
