Young, Single, And Adopting: What to do the FIRST night! - hate the idea of checking for bugs/lice but it's a good idea and there are good & tactful ways to do this step discussed in the article. Make sure kids know they're safe. Show them you locking doors/windows etc. Ask about a light at night. I like to call them "mini lamps". Makes kids feel less childish and self conscious about using them.
Adopting 1 child won't change the world but for that 1 child the world will change. I love this saying, it's not about our desire to have a baby, it's about giving a forever home to a child and showing them love!!
