The waiting period after starting an adoption can be a very frustrating and anxious time for parents. Parents should try to be as patient as possible and keep a positive outlook. The waiting period can be a time to research and gain greater understanding on adoption, read parenting books or magazines, or join an adoption group or Internet chat room with other adoptive parents.
Parents may also prepare for their new child by choosing baby names, getting the child's room ready, or keeping a journal of their feelings and insights during the adoption process. Those who are adopting internationally may want to learn more about the country from which their child is from or research travel information.
