I am a newbie to this board but DH and I will more than likely be pursuing adoption in the future. I have read through quite a few of the posts here and where people are in their adoption journeys. I haven't read anything about anyone adopting through DSS that I could tell. Is there a reason for this? I am certainly not calling anyone out, just wondering if there was a reason it might be less common (such as a more difficult process maybe). I would love to hear from anyone who has adopted through DSS. We are hoping to adopt a younger child at least as of now, preferably under a year if it makes a difference.
