I absolutely love placement day, especially when it’s in the office. The new parents leave with their baby, and everyone is smiling and happy. I imagine things can be more difficult with the placement of older children, but yesterday’s placement of three-year-old twins seemed to go as perfectly as anything possibly can.
Our Adoption Counselor said, “After placement, [the birth mother] was all smiles and said she just feels very comfortable with her decision, and is so thankful [the adoptive parents] are open-minded about taking older children and they all seem so happy. ”
Life is hard in different ways for everyone, but good things do happen…like they did yesterday!
Congratulations to our latest new family!
