So all of this time we’ve been thinking about adopting a little baby (hopefully a newborn) from foster care but …. I just saw the nicest looking teen in the Heart Gallery. He’s 13 years old. He’s Black. His eyes look so gentle. I’ve heard that if they are listed on the Heart Gallery then for whatever reason … they are considered hard to place so I read his profile very closely to see if I could tell what they weren’t saying.
I can’t find anything other than he’s a teen, a male and Black. I can live with all of those things. Is there a way to meet him without the pressure of having a formal sit down? I heard that they do adoption events where prospective adoptive parents and prospective adoptive children get a chance to hang out and do some kind of activities to see if we all click.
Does this sound like the right way to approach it?
