Statement of Reasons to Adopt

I completed mine. I thought it would be hard to write, but I finished and then had to shorten it to keep it on one page. Not sure if the agency will have edits, but I think it turned out well.

Today there was a bit of bickering on my adoption board. I backed out of it very quickly. I have to get over the feeling that because I'm single I should just be grateful that they accepted me. I don't want to rock the boat and have them say no because of it.

Don't get me wrong, my agency is great and have never done anything to make me feel this way, I just think all of those "no singles" i got from the domestic folks has made me overly appreciative of someone who said "yes". If that makes sense at all?

My husband and I have learned that it is really best to just sit back when the talk on the boards go bitter...it never really helps anyone. We wish you the best in your journey. We pray that things go quickly and smoothly! ~Melissa (BFAS family)
