The Waiting Game: Coping With Stress During The Wait

loveInternational adoption is universally stretching over longer processing times. With the introduction and implementation of Hague procedures and regulations, the process to adopt a child is much longer when compared to a few years ago. Longer wait times for adoption can result in greater anxiety for prospective adoptive parents, as they worry about issues like bonding, health and adoptions falling through. Hopscotch is pleased to share this terrific and insightful article, by Dawn Davenport, on anxiety and adoption and how to help to put these issues into perspective.
