Tips

Your Adoption Adventure

Icon_tip_1

Congratulations on your decision to enrich your family through adoption! Many children of all ages and walks of life are waiting for loving parents and hoping for warm, nurturing homes.

Your goal—and the goal of adoption agencies, lawyers and facilitators—is to find a good match child for both you and your child, a process that will take some time. The First30Days is here to help guide you through the ins and outs of this exciting journey with information, inspiration and steps that will help you find an incredible child to wrap in your loving embrace.

You will ask yourself many questions during this first 30 days. You may feel elation about the promise of a loving child. You may even feel a little fearful of what lies ahead, as your life will forever change during these next few months. Take comfort in the knowledge that those before you felt just as excited … and overwhelmed.

Be honest and open about your own fears and hopes for the adoption process. Rely on your intuition and do what feels right for your situation. It’s common to worry whether you’ll be a good parent, whether your child will love you back or whether you can cope with the journey you’re about to embark upon. Just remember to take it one day at a time!

In the next 30 days, you can expect to learn about:

  • The types of adoption available, their costs and the typical time it takes to complete the process.
  • How to decide the type of child you want to adopt.
  • How to talk with your family and friends about your decision.
  • How to select an agency, lawyer or facilitator.
  • The support systems in place for adoptive parents.


DID YOU KNOW? There are more than 127,000 adoptions completed in the United States each year? Yours may be next!

I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as DR abaka told me when he helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted DR abaka the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted DR abaka he assured me that my man will come again. he gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent him the money and he bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as he told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because DR abaka is so real and i urge you contact him now on his email so that he can also help you the way he helped me. email is Drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also contact him with his phone number on whats app +2349063230051 you can also check and contact him on htpp://Drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com

My husband encouraged us to come out of our shell and tell the world about the man behind the medicine that brought us back together after 7 years of separation. He was so astonished by the amazing spell by Dr. Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) that reunited our undying love for each other that proved we are sole mate. There has been a barrier between us, we regularly disagrees with each other, argue over unnecessary things and fight almost every week when we were still unmarried. We eventually separated for some months due unsolvable issues before he moved to Italy for 4 years.
Though it might sound impossible to still get hold of your crush for that period of time without any means of communication. I always felt he took my heart away with him because I could not fall in love again and I could not stop thinking about him but I can not be with him. Doc Wakina (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) proved that nothing relating to love issues is impossible for him; doctor also proved that true love does not die after broking the barriers between us. Days after the spell, he returned unexpectedly to take me along with him. My happiest moment is seeing us live happily for a year without issues before getting married. We are still astonished by the good spiritual work that brought us together forever.

I am happy to make this comment , my wife and I are now happily back together. I have to say it was effortlessly done! Within 2 days, My wife left me a year ago.with my one kid The longer she’s gone, the more I see what a coward I was. At first, I blamed her for leaving. I told her she was ‘wrong’. In fact, I slapped Scripture on her, trying to guilt-induce her any way I could. My anger make me only to pushed her farther away. I can’t believe the way I acted. My wife gave me chance after chance, and I ignored her. I contacted Dr Osauyi and within a few hours of speaking with him, I realized that Dr Osauyi was the person whom I could completely trust. I just wanted to thank you for all your magic spell and commitment ! and I will always be using Dr.Osauyi for further work in the future because he really put unity and smile on my family again. We are now blissfully celebrating our third year anniversary together. Thank you so much!!! For those who might also want to give him a try. Email him on Osauyilovespellhelp@gmail.com you will never regret ever contacting him i wish all that will contact him best of luck you can call his cell phone on +2347064294395 Rob Simpson form USA

I am in my early 40s and have never had a happy relationships or marriages because of the terrible mistake I made in my youthful age (15 years ago), though I have been married for 3times now. This story is ugly but I must share it to clear my conscience and pave the way for a new beginning in life. I broke two homes; their marriage did not mean anything to me as much as I gets what I want. It was fun until I got married, then karma started. My first husband was a cheating machine with both women and men, the second was nothing to write home about. I visited a therapist immediately the second left, to make sure I do not have broken home again, but the third which I have married for a year and two months took in another girl and demanded I leave his house. I did not see that one coming. To cut it shot; dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) showed me mercy by rewriting history with a special love spell. Asked me to first go and plead for forgiveness from the homes I broke before the spell can take effect, it was not an easy task, in fact it was a suicide mission but was success. The spell took effect immediately I forgave myself, something strange began to happen, I saw shadows running off my body that morning, my husband who despised me so much did not only call but came to pick me from work to a romantic dinner. Over a year now, my husband has remained a loving and romantic man. I learnt my lesson. Thank you doctor wakina.

My ex regretted leaving me and was stalking me recently. After reading a blog review from Enid Peter how her Husband’s ex decided to contact him the moment they planned to build a family together, I quickly became interested cos my ex has been stalking me. Even after knowing that I am married with a kid, he kept forcing himself into me to have one more bit.
His actions brought a serious damage to my marriage when my husband found out, he lost trust in me and changed his behavior by paying deaf ear as I try to justify my relationship towards my ex, he instead said he has fallen out of love for me and he need space and separation from me and the only thing keeping us is our kid.
I became worried that my ex might succeed in ruining my 6 years old marriage because of jealousy. My husband and I almost went our separate ways before I found the review from Enid Peter last weekend containing Dr. Wakina’s email [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com]
Just a day after the twenty four hours healing spell for my broken marriage, my husband became himself again like the man of my dream. My stalking ex come to our house that night to plead to my husband and I before fleeing away for good. What a lovely and caring husband he is now, am happy Dr. Wakina helped me defeat my physical and spiritual enemies, we are champions. More strength to Dr. Wakina.

Hello readers,
I USED LOVE SPELL RITUAL TO GET BACK THE MAN I LOVE.
It was unfortunate that his ex gf decided to contact him to get him back the moment we planned to build a family together. I was hurt for seeing him confused and indecisive after I sacrificed time, energy, heart, life, money, soul for him only for him to pay me with heart break by saying that he is now unsure of our relationship. He developed an attitude of becoming cold and distant towards me. I know he loves me very much for the past 4 years and I love him more before his ex tries to steal his heart.
I was advised by a good friend of mine to fight back both physical and spiritual if I truly love him. Her advised encouraged and lead me to posts and site that talks about love spell from Dr. Wakina Link, it was my first attempt but I took the opportunity that came once which Dr. Wakina provided via his email dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. It was said and done by Dr. Wakina, I never knew his ex used evil powers on him. I fought a good fight which I and my lover are very proud of after his freedom and decision to continue with me until we get married, his ex has vanished from his life. I never doubted Dr. Wakina for once, he proved his worth.
Thanks for your time…

THIS IS NOT A JOKE. TRUST GREAT DR KUMAR. My names are Gina Tom from United States. Great Dr Kumar is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Great Dr Kumar. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left.

I will keep this review short and simple. I believe the general public already knows the effective and genuine powers of Dr. Wakina love spell. I am now among the people sharing reviews about his love spell because I benefited from it. My husband was gone for 8 months ): and I was lied upon by trusted people, even from my Cousin who promised to help seek for spiritual powers that will help bring him back. I was emotionally abused until when I discovered that a popular spiritual healer online can equally help, I never hesitated to give him a try. The shot I took turned out positive. My instincts did not fail. I cherish Dr. Wakina for keeping to his words. Now that my husband is back as I requested, I feel excited to share this review and Dr. Wakina email. You can contact him for help, I believe he will help: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

My family advised me not to leave my future or that of my child in the hands of a jerk! They do not really know what he means to me. He left me because of family issues, my parents never liked him, they thought he is stingy and too quiet, but they never knew he is richly blessed inside. Though I tried several time to make them accept him before the pregnancy saga which made them go mad and pressured him to force our breakup. We lost contact with each other, he did not see our son when she was delivered. But I kept wishing to be with him again for eternity, I pray every night that my parents forgive him and accept him the way he is.
2yeras passed and I still kept my hope strong, I was referred to Dr. Wakina by a stranger online who benefited from his love spell, her testimony motivated me to contact him for. I was afraid because I have not done such before because I do not want to hurt anybody. I was surprised when Dr. Wakina first told me my problems and status of my baby father. It was quite impressive that I had to share tears of joy with high hope.
Valentine came early the day Dr. Wakina brought back my baby father after 2years of waiting. My family welcomed him with an open arms and apologized for their wrongs, he is now every bodies favorite. I am happy for the brilliant work done by Dr. Wakina, it was almost impossible to bring him back after 2years. I will never forget his reactions the first time he saw our son. Happiness prevailed at last. Doctor Wakina can be reached via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

Can you please advise if you can help me get back my husband? That was the title of my message to a spiritual spell doctor called dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com). Please read to the end. Thanks....
I was really struggling to keep my Husband to myself. He works with an NGO and travels a lot to different countries, little do I know he already has another woman in South Africa with four month pregnancy for him. It was very hard for me to believe that my Husband can actually cheat on me, but pregnanting another woman is something else. We have four grown children already.
I was heartbroken when he wrote to say he has relocated permanently to South Africa because of his pregnant lover. I was so damaged, but there was nothing I could do, besides, I can’t even tell my family because they warned me earlier. So, my hope for his change of heart came to life on early hour of November 12 when he wrote again to say he is confused and frustrated and don’t know if it is me or her, before changing his mind again. My eyes suddenly opened and I realized his new lover is doing something evil to keep him there.
I prayed and was guided to consult a spell caster named dr. wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) for help. Hopefully the spell doctor helped me as expected and our marital issues were resolved. He returned home to us 7days after the spell. He pleaded and confess all his atrocities. The best part is after the love spell, his new lover confessed he is not responsible for the pregnancy, it was a strategy to tie him down. She finally commanded him to go back to his original family because she couldn’t withstand the power of the spell. Wow, it was mind blowing when the impossibility became possible. Spell really works and dr. wakina is indeed great.

I never take some people for granted, especially those that plays vital role in my life. Dr. Wakina is one of them. Ever since he was recommended to me, he has been playing a significant role in my life by helping me get back my girlfriend after months of breakup and also granting me the opportunity to obtain the position I have been seeking. His spell stood like a pillar in my life when I was seriously depressed and almost give-up every opportunity I had.

My girlfriend really mean a lot to me, I see my future with her before she was deceived by a guy for marriage who latter used and dumped her before her disappearance. I didn’t know all these until Dr. Wakina disclosed series of interesting secrets to me through his email (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com). I did what almost every normal guy can’t do by ignoring friends advises to forget her and move on. I never quit searching for her because I see my future and family in her.

The risk I took was worth it, we’re envied today and made reference to by critics. Once again, thank you Dr. Wakina for the powerful spell done that made me unite once again with my lover, I appreciate the efforts you put in even in your busy schedule to make sure this spell is successful. I appreciate you for opening my eyes for new opportunities around me.

My name is Tammy Paul, I’m finally fulfilling my promise to Dr. Wakina after the unexpected miracle he performed last December by bringing back my Husband as a clean and perfect man I once to know. I called his work unexpected because I didn’t know or believe a Man could have such a talent to restore a damaged home.
After my Husband was restored, I waited to see if he will go back to his old ways, for more than 6 months, I have been observing him, but he never went back, he became so perfect like we never had issues in the past. I also observed if his work will bring bad luck to me or my family, instead, Dr. Wakina spell mad us stronger, wealthier and more united than ever.
I am giving back to the world the opportunity they gave me to meet my destiny changer. The reviews I read on blogs and drwakinalovetemple.webs.com changed my whole life. I have confirmed that Dr. Wakina is real and his love spell is so powerful, his spell last for eternity, he is a good man that knows his work. I promise you won’t regret when you email him via: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com for help.

My deepest secret turned against me after my husband discovered I was seeing my boss. Though it’s a shameful act, but I was afraid my boss would fire me if I resist. I really wanted to stay in the job because my husband was not working and my boss increased my pay because of our secret affairs. I thought I was doing our family good, until my husband found out through my colleague, he was broken at that moment and vowed never to see me again. My senses came back, I quitted the job, I was ashamed of myself, I became suicidal, and I started doing drugs in order to forget my past.
Few days after the divorce papers were served, I email Dr. Wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) After reading some overwhelming reviews about his bring lover back spell, I explained everything to him and pleaded to make me change, to adore only my husband and make my husband forgive and forget every evil I have done to him and forget about divorce. It took Dr. Wakina two days to cast the spell, my husband came back five days after the spell. I couldn’t believe my eyes, he totally forgave me and agreed to start afresh with me, he then appreciated Dr. Wakina for his help and promised not to divorce. I am so happy for our new beginning, we have a new job and a new apartment. For over seven months, things has been working. I was blessed since the day I found Dr. Wakina’s email: (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com)

I wrote an article to Dr. Wakina on how I and my husband had a fight that lead to my loneliness and despair, hoping for help on getting back my husband. The reason we got into fight was not because he always cheat on me with different women, I always forgive him for that because I couldn’t change him. I fought him when I found out he was too extravagate, he wasted our hard earned money on his vices which includes smoking, drinking, clubbing and gambling. As an expecting mother, I couldn’t accept that part of his life and the pain he caused me hence I went hysterical and physically abused him on our anniversary night (May 31st). He was traumatized by the fight which I regretted, I asked for his forgiveness, but he never listed, he traveled out of the country to stay with his friend. I was seriously hurt, my guilty conscience won't let me live without him.
I ask Dr. Wakina in the article to help prove to my husband that I am no longer hysterical, I want him to come back and start life afresh with me. I also pleaded to Dr. Wakina to help me get back his forgiveness and love towards me and our unborn child. I was lucky at the end, my desires were granted, it happened like a miracle after the love spell, I felt the spell on me emotionally and I have changed, my husband come back to me as a changed man too, for months now, he has been truthful to me, Dr. Wakina Softened his heart and made him to accept my love again and what I can offer. We are living in peace since after the spell. Thank you Great Dr. Wakina. Reach out to him via [dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com]

Sometime late September last year, I needed help for a bring back love spell after reading great reviews on Dr. Wakina and his love spell. I had a situation which I desperately needed a supernatural help on, every physical efforts made to rescue my husband has always failed. My husband stopped loving and caring for me and our children after 7 years of happy home. He did so much wrong to me, I encountered so many domestic violence from him, he turned into a professional liar, and the worst of all, and he started using drugs and alcohol. I couldn’t bear his torture anymore when he wanted a divorce. I couldn’t afford to lose my husband to a strange spirit, I knew him to be a loving man before we got married, but I didn’t know what came over him.
Doctor Wakina love spell was so great and powerful, my estranged husband’s attitude and urge for evil changed just after 8 days of the completion of the love spell. The reasons why I can recommend Dr. Wakina to anyone are, his love spell is real and it works, Doctor wakina don’t cast love spell that is against anyone’s wish and his love spell lasts for eternity. I have been observing my husband’s behavior for more than 9 months, he is still the same, he has never stopped loving me again, the love keep growing each day and we keep prospering with the blessings that follows Doctor Wakina’s love spell. That’s the reason why I can recommend him to anyone event to my worst enemy… to email him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

All great tips and always important to arm yourself with information first. One important tip too, that I can tell people from my almost 40 years of experience in the field, is that the agency or adoption resource you choose must be a good fit for you. Make sure you read between the lines and do not fall for glitzy marketing, get your questions answered fully and honestly and make sure that you feel compatible with your resource so you can build a relationship. Agencies have different styles, as well as different options, policies and procedures. It is a very personal choice and you need to be comfortable before starting this life-changing venture. You will not dot every single i or cross every single t but you must have a good comfort level before beginning.
