It seems like for the past four years, we have had nothing but roadblocks. Now, the first real opportunity is presenting itself. I am trying not to get me hopes up, but at the same time to make sure we are prepared for this change if it comes. We have found, through the provincial foster system, a sibling group of three who are ready to be adopted. We have put our name in to get more information and see if they approve us as a match, but I haven't heard anything yet.
As I am sure you are all keenly aware, adopting three kids all at once is going to be a BIG DEAL. What advice would you have for me (if this does work out)? Since they are older (7,5,2) what special considerations would they need? I don't want to "make" them call us Mom and Dad, but I want them to know that they can. What would you say to them about that so that you aren't putting any pressure on them? Any other tricky situations that you can forsee?
