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.

Galileo used ‘lamp’ to study, Graham Bell used ‘candle’ to study, Shakshpeare studied in ‘street lights’ but, do you know about Rajnikant?

- Only agarbatti

Once Rajnikant was playing cricket in the monsoons and…

One day Rajnikant went for a morning walk & in the afternoon police arrested him. WHY?

This is a day for fun, drama, and celebration. Even if you have a long list of responsibilities, be open to making life more colourful and enjoyable. You may startle your family with what seems like a sudden or unexpected move. Investigate thoroughly any proposed purchase or major change.

If you wake up this morning and want nothing more than to stay under the sheets and cuddle a little longer, know that you aren’t alone. There is a sensitive warmth about the day that’s making you feel vulnerable. Make sure to surround yourself with supportive people today. Harsh words are likely to cut more deeply than usual, making you wish you’d just stayed in bed all day.

You may have a difficult time today keeping your sense of balance. Part of you is very independent and part of you wants the safety and security of a predictable life. In romance, you can seem uncaring because you would rather show your love through action than through words.

You can be persuasive when it comes to getting what you want. Parties and social events will bring you new and exciting contacts. You can be a fool for love. Your need to feel secure and happy means you will do whatever it takes to make a relationship or friendship work.

Plans for getting together with a group of close friends may have to be called off because of sudden unexpected events. This could have you feeling somewhat down, especially if a romantic partner is involved. Try not to worry about it too much. You will be able to reschedule, and you could use the time alone anyway to relax and center yourself.

You walk tall and project confidence and smooth technique when the Leo Moon aspects the Gemini Sun. You are under lucky stars today. If single, someone looks at you as if you were the only person in the room tonight. Who is it? Watch for someone with a high-voltage smile.

You may be having a difficult time getting your opinions across to others. For some, your ideas may seem too self-centered. For others, you may come across as insensitive to the situation. Do your best to understand what others are telling you. Don’t be surprised if you don’t receive the loving strokes that you feel you deserve. This is a day for you to observe and learn.

This can be a moody day. If you focus on your negative reactions, it closes the door to constructive change. You can and should push for change, but don’t expect perfection. Don’t beat yourself up. Standards are good only to the degree that they allow you to be more effective.

Recent developments have brought new interests into your life. As a result, you might be seriously considering enrolling in a formal course of study involving these subjects. If you really want to do this, it’s definitely the right time to start. Others in your community might want to do the same, so a get-together to discuss the subject might help. Books and magazines could also be useful.
