I have only posted once or twice, but I read the discussions here often. I was wondering if one of you might have some insight on the topic of transitional care in domestic adoptions?
I was browsing the website of the agency that we are interested in today, and it says that when your baby is released from the hospital they go home with a transitional care family until placement day. I have no idea what kind of time frame that is and it is causing me to have second thoughts. I am not sure why, but I had always assumed that you and your spouse take your child home from the hospital.
Why do they do this, and how long does the stay with the transitional family usually last? Is this the way that it works with all agencies, and what are the pros and cons of this arrangement?
I would really appreciate any thoughts, or info you might have on this topic.
