    These were my thoughts exactly! I myself am so happy that the little boy is in a clean, safe, loving home. Being here in the USA could easily open up a world of opportunities for him. Think of all the good health care he'll receive. Now THAT'S something to be happy for! My guess is that's probably what they were thinking! How generous they are!

    Just MTCW!

    Pray for her and just be supportive. Don't offer unsolicited advice.

    My husband and I adopted 2 children at the same time 2 years ago (they were 18 months and 4 years; domestic; thru foster care). Just yesterday my husband laughed and said, "What were we thinking?" We can't say we regret it and in general are happy. There are OUR kids now. (They have mild special needs; I cart them everywhere all week for appointments; my son is 6 now and teacher is starting to see improvements). I say that to say that we knew the kids were developmentally delayed and I worked in pediatric therapy situation so we knew what we were getting into-- sort of -- and it's still difficult at times.

    So that's why it's important to just be supportive. If she will need just that eventually.
