My mind is circling around the adoption again since I have to update the home study etc. (it's been a year!)... so I checked Rumor Queen, just because!
Not a good idea: There was a post asking what it would make the potential parents withdraw their adoption request and the desperation in some of the responses was...well, scary! Some of the people will be first time parents at over 50, know that they will have to work over retirement age to finance college for their kids and have to consider health issues... diapers instead of golden sunset!
A day or two later my very organized neighbors and proud parents of A. stopped by... they were way ahead of me in the game and expect to travel in November... which, yes, will be 27 month waiting time for them!
We speculated about if there would be more or less kids available after the Olympic games -- my gut tells that there might be some mixed race kids...
