I spoke with the placement coordinator and started asking the ten zillion questions we came up with. Upshot: We will not be pursuing the adoption of the two children I mentioned. After learning more about them, we decided that our family did not have the resources to truly meet the needs of these children. Thankfully, another family with our agency does have a strong background in that area. If we hadn't asked a specific question, no one would have been the wiser--that's the downside of paperwork. What you see isn't always what you get. Usually, of course, it's the children who get slighted in that kind of a deal. Pray that the family I mentioned is successful in bringing these kids home.
