This brochure put out by the State of Michigan about adopting older kids says a lot of good stuff. It’s a must read if you are thinking about adopting an older child. And God bless you if you are. People like you are much needed in our society.
I wish I had read this months ago. It pretty much nails many of the feelings we’ve had and the behaviors we’ve seen from Speedy. His caseworker wants us to make a commitment sometime in the next two weeks so his department can plan how to proceed. Reading this makes me a whole lot more comfortable with saying, “Yes.” Yes is scary. It’s nice to know that it’s normal to feel that way.
