Adopting Older Children

We are getting ready to update our homestudy to expand our age range.  This could mean potentially we will receive a referral for older children.  We have been reading books on adopting older children and have ordered some videos from Karen Purvis.  Most of the "real" stuff that gives us a glimpse of what we can expect, though, comes from the blogs of other families that have brought home older children and are very open about the challenges they face.  Here's a post that I thought was good today, so I'm going to link you to it.

  1. Thanks for sharing...I think of your family often.

    Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 NKJV)
