DuPage County adoption attorneyAdopting a child can be a lengthy process, and for good reason. It is necessary for the proper due diligence to be taken by all parties to make sure the adoption is the right fit. It is helpful to do all the research you can before adopting a baby so you can be adequately prepared. 

Fun Ways to Prepare

  • Get the baby’s bedroom ready - While you are waiting for the adoption process to be finalized, you can prepare the baby’s bedroom for them to arrive. Decorating the room with wallpaper, painting a mural, or buying toys, a crib, a changing table, a swing, and any other things necessary for your baby may take some time, so be sure to give yourself enough preparation time for your new arrival. 
  • Exercise or take up a hobby - If you feel stressed or anxious while waiting for your baby, you can take your mind off things by exercising or starting a hobby you have always wanted to try.
  • Treat yourself and your spouse - Even though you are ready to have a child, you still need to remember your relationship and your own wellness. Once you have a child, more of your time will be devoted to them. Making the effort before you adopt the baby to spend time with your spouse and do things you both want to do will be beneficial to both of you. 

Practical Steps 

  • Find a pediatrician - Make sure you know where your chosen pediatrician is located. Do some research, get recommendations from friends and family, or ask at the adoption agency to find the doctor who will be the best fit for you. 
  • Research daycare facilities - If you are looking to return to work after adoption, make sure you have an idea of the options for daycare in the area. It is never too early to start looking for a daycare that you like, because some daycares have waiting lists. 
  • Attend a new parent and/or CPR class - It does not hurt to get as much information as possible about being a parent beforehand, so it may be beneficial to attend a new parent class. In addition, learning about CPR and basic first aid may prevent a disaster from occurring.
