I just signed the adoption disclosure.
This is a document that is presented to pre-adoptive parents and is supposed to disclose all the case details regarding the children to the people who are signing up to take them in for life. It includes details about history, reasons for placement, biological family, ect.
My heart raced a little when I opened the email attachment containing the document. One part nervous and one part eager to learn more about my children.
Well, as it turns out, there was nothing in there I didn’t know. And trust me, I don’t know a lot. But they should, right? I mean, I was hoping to get some little details…you know, just small things, such as…
Where was Sprout and what happened to him the first 3.5 years of his life?!
Looks like I might not ever know.
