Tip from Adoption Answer

"Support those who are on their Adoption Journey by sharing with them that you are praying for them... and then really follow through on that. It is much more comforting and supportive to hear these words than those of "Heard anything?", "How long has it been?", "Do you think it is going to happen?", "If only you could have your own", "I feel so bad for you"...
Offering kindness and encouragement, instead of hard to answer questions, to someone who is on the "We are Adopting" roller coaster, you will be that breath of fresh air they need. You do not know how badly they want to be matched, AND to share that they are matched. Believe me, they will share when something exciting is going on in their journey. Until you hear that from them, smile at them, hug them, pray for them and share that you are here for them IF they need you to be."   Facebook or www.adoptionanswer.com
