Adoption is not necessarily hard, but it certainly is time
consuming and emotional. We waited
almost six years to be matched with our son’s birth mom. That waiting time was “hard.”
The paperwork that lead up to the approval date wasn’t necessarily hard but was
time consuming. There are applications, back ground checks, home studies,
letters of recommendations, health reports, etc. that all need to be completed
in order to adopt. For general information regarding adoption, check out: adoptionexperts.com.
So, be prepared for the paperwork and be prepared for the wait
if you are pursuing an adoption in which the birth mom chooses you.
I will also say, that adoption is expensive, which could mean
that part is hard. Some save for years in order to afford an adoption. Some
fundraise in order to pursue an adoption. Make sure to do some research in your
local state/city to become informed on how much an adoption would cost. You can
find information about affording an adoption here: adoption.com/affording.
Best of luck to you!
