  2. I’m in total agreement, there is no way to be fully prepared to have a child leave – it hurts so bad! Loved listening to the podcast and look forward to following you through this new placement!

  3. Congrats on the new placements!! I ♥ hearing from you two… especially because my husband and I are just finishing up the licensing process! Our licensing worker is hoping to have us licensed by the middle of May!! Thanks for sharing your story… because it gives me an idea of what to expect!! :)

  5. Hi! I have been listening to your podcast for a while now, and we are foster parents and are adopting our son any day now. I did notice one thing I wanted to mention. You say again and again (specifically in the “media” podcast) that once adoption is final, it’s final. But this is not the case. It’s possible, in every state, that after an adoption is finalized, it can be overturned, even years later, if a mistake was made. In our case, we were supposed to finalize in March, and the court noticed days before that the state had forgotten (!!!!) to terminate parental rights on our foster son’s mother’s husband (not his biological father!), who has presumptive rights. They told us (the judge) that if our adoption had gone through, and no one had ever noticed this, this man could have possible sued us for parental rights later on, down the road. They said it would automatically invalidate our adoption. The judge said a number of mistakes can validate an adoptionl, including misconduct by the mom’s lawyers, parental rights not having been properly filed, etc. Just a note. I do know that this is INCREDIBLY rare, and almost never happens.

    I am very happy to hear about your successful adoption and I hope your family is doing wonderfully!
