On Thursday night we had our second homestudy meeting with our Adoption Practitioner (AP). We were there for over 2 hours, but it didn’t seem that long that’s for sure! We were asked questions about our responses from our homework. Oh the the homework… We are still working on the parenting questinaire… hope to get that done soon.
We also discussed openness in adoption and what that entailed. While we want to ensure that our child knows as much as possible about their family and Korean culture, we were like most adoptive families – hesitant about “interference”, or families coming back and wanting to have input on how the child is raised. Since we are adopting from Asia, the likelyhood of the birth parents being involved is rare and our AP was able to help us deal with those concerns.
