Estimated adoption fees: $22-30,000.
Items to place in a care package for our boys, plus postage: $42.
Cadbury eggs (my favorite!) to help me pass the time until the boys are officially ours: $.75/each.
Having great friends who help you out with special projects, who bring you dinner on busy days, and who share their insights on important adoption issues: priceless.
Thanks, Leanne, Helen, and Kevin!
And, if you are interested in a wonderful piece on bonding and attachment written by a family who adopted two boys (in a similar age range as ours) last fall, check out http://family-from-afar.blogspot.com/2009/04/glimmer-of-breakthrough.html. Their example is inspiring!
