I've been semi-active on the Working Moms board, but have lurked here for awhile since I've been interested in adoption for a long time. I have two biological children and we're just starting the process for international adoption.
I know I'm getting way head of myself by asking these two questions, but I'm really curious.
- Did you rename your child?
- Would it be feasible to have our children travel with us to meet our new child? I'm already worrying about the logistics of adoption when we already have two young children at home. It seems stressful and expensive (and maybe not even allowed) to fly halfway around the world with them, but we also don't have family who are capable of watching them for a two-to-three-week timeframe, or for whatever time we'd be gone.
Thank you for you insight! I've learned so much about adoption just from reading this board.
