Sarah M. Baker February 16, 2016

When you start your journey in adoption, the fear of getting attached to the idea of a child and then having that match fall through can be hard to move past. You may have already learned that until placement and termination of parental rights, you have no claim on that child, but it doesn’t stop your emotions from forming an attachment to a baby who may one day become yours. You may also fear losing money that is tied up in that match, leaving you financially crippled if it falls through.

So how do you move past your fears of a failed adoption match and allow yourself to pursue your dream of being a parent?
