Knowing what questions to ask in the Home Study process will help you avoid a headache (or worse…not passing)!
How many pillars of support are necessary to make it through this adoption trek to the end? Adoption is a journey of endurance. If you’ve read Tandem or my blog, you know how much emphasis I place on the support of friends, family, co-workers, your sisters in Christ- who encourage you along your adoption pathway.

When we were adopting, I wondered about everything. What would my child look like? What it would sound like when she said “mommy” for the first time? How would I ever find our child among the “red flags” and “adoption scamming” stories that popped up in my Facebook feed? That word “wonder” has two very different meanings. And I wish I would have taken more time to be in wonder; to fully believe in God’s promises that I knew to be true. That He had a plan.
