We have a few other families who are happy to share their stories and their timelines. To see how long it took them to adopt, please see:
Post Adoption – 6 Months:
The report was a good one! The social worker notes that he is “showing a strong connection to his mom and brother”. The post adoption report says that he is “adjusting to his new environment very well”. He loves to be held and wants to be near his mom and his brother. He explores his environment some and sweeks out his mom when uncertain or uncomfortable. He is able to comprehend most of what is said to him. He has learned too many English words to count and is able to put together four word sentences. The social workers says that Lori has done a great job providing all the resources needed for him to be successful!
Post Adoption – 12 Months:
A wonderful report! Without disclosing too much info about this family, we’d like to say that part of the post adoption report addresses how the child is doig medically. In this case, the doctor caring for the child has said that the diagnosis which was suspected for him while in the orphanage is not correct. That is wonderful news! The social worker says that he is adjusting well! He has quickly attached to Lori and adores his big brother. He has become very verbal and active, reaching out and initiating hugs or attention. He prefers his mom over any one else. The family is loving and they are adjusting well to the additional family member. Lori is very commited to providing the best for her children!
