How did your adoption process go? Did you stay at home or have to go to a dorm? Did you get to pick the parents? How did you chose? Did you have a 'placement ceremony'? Did you have any legal issues with the father or anyone else? Was money an issue?

Just trying to start conversation. No need to answer them all... just something to start the thread.

For my son's adoption there wasn't any fuss since he was already living with my dad and stepmom.

For the twins I had originally starting looking through family profiles that an agency sent me. In the end the twins were adopted by my son's babysitter's friend who lived in another state. The adoption was to be closed and I didn't know where they lived until we had an appointment with an adoption attorney who accidently gave information that he shouldn't have. That is when I learned their last name and state of residence. Since then I have learned their city of resident and address.

Did you stay at home or have to go to a dorm? I stayed home with my family and went to school until I got put on bed rest in the last 4 weeks or so for preeclampsia. I was home schooled from then until the next semester.

Did you get to pick the parents? How did you chose? I picked her mom from an adoption agency's files of them. I specified things I was looking for and they found applicable ones for me to choose from. Once I read Sara's file I KNEW she was the one.

Did you have a 'placement ceremony'? No...not even sure what this means.

Did you have any legal issues with the father or anyone else? No, not really. Since it was a rape all that was required was for me to sign saying it was an act of violence and that I felt threatened for my life or the life of the baby. The agency had to place an announcement in a random paper in IL and give the rapist time to "claim" his rights. It was a very scary time for me...

Was money an issue? No.

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!
