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 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.

I AM AMONG THE MANY THAT SEEK THE HELP OF DR. WAKINA, WHO IS A LOVE SPELL SPECIALIST. MY ROCKY MARRIAGE CRASHED RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES THEREBY CAUSING ME TO MAKE THE DECISION THAT GOT THE DESTINY OF MY FAMILY BACK ON TRACK. DESPITE USING WAKINA SPELL, I MADE SURE MY HUSBAND RECONSIDERED RETUNING BACK TO ME WILLINGLY WITHOUT ANY PRESSURE, BUT THE CASTED LOVE SPELL WORKED ALONGSIDE HIS WILL TO BE WITH HIS FAMILY, THOUGH SOMEONE DID USED MAGIC AGAINST HIM.
DR. WAKINA VIA HIS EMAIL (DR.WAKINALOVETEMPLE@GMAIL.COM) EXPLAINED THE MAGIC THAT MADE HIM TO RUN AWAY FROM RESPONSIBILITIES. DOC SAID THOUGH HE WILL MISS HIS LOVE ONES BUT THE MAGICAL SPIRIT WONT LET HIM COMMUNICATE OR EVEN GO CLOSE TO THEM.
IT WAS A ROUGH MOMENT TO STAY WITHOUT MY HUSBAND FOR ALMOST A YEAR. BUT TODAY, THE MAN I LOVE WHOLEHEARTEDLY HAS BEEN CLEANSED OF EVERY NEGATIVE SPIRITUAL OPERATION BY DOCTOR WAKINA.
