I am pretty much in the thick of this right now. We did not know the age of the child we would adopting. Our foster care license is for ages 0-2. That includes 2 years 11 months, which is pretty much 3. We were blessed to accept.
We were very much prepared for potentially adopting a 6- or 18-month-old. We were very not prepared for a 3-year-old, but we’re coming through to the other side now. And these are the things that I really wish we had done, and a few things we are glad that we do, when adopting our toddler.
