Here’s some good advice from Rainbow Kids: …you can shorten the time a child waits to be adopted. How? It’s very simple: be paperwork ready.
Long before you first see the photograph of your new child, you can begin working to shorten his waiting time. By taking the step to commit yourself to a particular agency, by completing your homestudy and dossier, you are literally erasing days and months that your child will have to wait. When your paperwork is ready, you’ll be amazed at how quickly the process can move.
If you’ve been considering adoption, but you haven’t begun your paperwork yet, start today. Don’t wait another day. Your child is waiting for you.
