CONGRATULATIONS!! You took placement of your new child… now what?!
When the thrill and excitement of your new addition becomes more normal you may be left with the feeling of ‘now what?!’
We adopted our children through the state foster care system a few years apart. When we adopted our daughter we were unaware of the benefits she would have as a military child and therefore we didn’t follow up on things as we should have. Luckily, by the time we adopted our son we felt much more prepared on if/when he was eligible for each step.
