It takes time to mentally prepare yourself, and to convince the elders in your family regarding your wish to adopt a child. However, once you have done so, your work is less than half over. With the number of adoption agencies, both private and public existing, you will but naturally have to take some time to decide which agency you would want to finally go ahead with.

Here are ten things that you should keep in mind when you are choosing your adoption agency.

Research

Spend time talking to the people of the agency to see if you would be comfortable with them. Find out what qualifications the counselors have. Ideally they should hold a master’s degree in social work and have experience with respect to the adoption process.

Services Offered

Find out all the before and after adoption services that the agency offers. For example: do they have a contract, do they have a pre adoption orientation, a brochure about the agency that you could read, the time taken between initiation and the final process etc.

License to Operate

Call the government body that regulates and legalizes such agencies, if you wish too to see if the agency has a proper license of operation or not. This will also help you to know if any complaints have been filed against the agency.

Success Rate

Before making your decision, find out how many successful adoptions the agency has carried out and how many failed. For this you could join an adoption group in your area. This will help you find out from other parents about which agency they chose, the reasons for doing so, if they are dissatisfied or not, if the babies from the agency are healthy or not etc.

Family Type

Find out the type of families that the agency caters to. For example: some are biased towards certain religions, others who don’t allow adoption for single or same sex parents etc.

Guess Who

While enjoying a drink at the bar a guy decided to try his luck with an attractive young girl sitting alone.

To his surprise, she asked him to join her for a drink and eventually asked if he’d like to come back to her place. The pair jumped into a taxi and went back to her house.

Later, the young man pulled out a cigarette from his jeans and searched for his lighter. Unable to find it, he asked the girl continue reading...

Today the surrounding energy will be trying to teach you something, specifically, how to share with others. But first you must get to a place where you truly want to share something of yourself. Have you examined your tendency to run away? You seem to be afraid that they’ll overwhelm you or that you’ll owe them something. This isn’t the case. Why not give other people a chance to get to know you?

With the current aspects at play, you could find that the hard work you’ve done in the past finally brings financial rewards. This will make you very happy, but don’t get carried away and go on a spending spree! Treat yourself a little. Celebrate with a friend. Take care to exercise a little good sense. You don’t want to buy too much and have to take a lot of it back to the store.

Stress could take a toll on you today. You might temporarily lose your ambition and be left wondering if it’s all really worth it. This isn’t a good day to start projects or engage in important discussions. Stay home and get some rest if you can. Treat yourself to a good book and some ice cream.

You may be the recipient of a warm, loving phone call or letter from a lover or a close friend who’s presently out of town. You’ll wish with all your heart that he or she could be home! In the meantime, you’re likely to keep yourself quite busy with creative projects, activities in your community, in order to distract yourself.

It is important to be very direct in your dealings with people. Hiding unpleasant facts will bring trouble later; it is better to air things out now. You may be attracted to spiritual music and themes today. Listening to people you respect and time spent in quiet reflection can bring greater serenity.

You might be a bit confused with the mood of the day which fosters quick action and a sporadic approach to things. More than likely, this approach isn’t exactly in line with your usual methodical protocol. Do what you can to merge with this energy in order to add a more spontaneous spark to your daily routine.

It may be hard for you to find answers today. You may also find it difficult to get your point across, especially since everyone’s head is way up in the clouds. Don’t be surprised if your own head takes a trip up there as well. You’re better off giving it a boost up there instead of trying to force it back down to reality. Check things out from a different perspective.
