Adoption can be a bit of a roller coaster. A couple weeks ago we received notice of some major changes to LDS Family Services Ohio adoption branch. That it's closing. Huge change.
I was pretty emotional at first but now I'm totally fine. It actually doesn't mean much change for us yet. Nathan ended up being a direct placement so we've been that route before. A direct placement is a placement without an agency involved and just an attorney. There's also another agency here that our case worker has recommended and their prices are within reach.
Despite this change, any birth mother can still pick us. Whether she wants to do a direct placement or use LDS Family Services. Our adoption profile will remain on the LDS FS website itsaboutlove.org for as long as we're waiting to be chosen.
So for right now, please continue to spread the word!
