Adoption is a journey. Like any expedition into unknown territory, preparation can make the difference between a smooth trip and one fraught with disappointments and difficulties. Whether your adoption journey begins with infertility, a life-long dream of building a family through adoption, or the desire to add one or more siblings to your bio-built mix, the passage from the dawning of the idea to completion of the process offers various routes.
