While becoming parents through adoption is a beautiful and life changing event for any couple, it can also be an emotionally challenging time. In this podcast we will hear from Amanda who shares the rollercoaster of emotions she and her husband experienced at the hospital and afterwards. Hear about their meeting with the birth parents and the circumstances they were asked to consider. What were their initial concerns and fears? How did they manage expectations versus reality, and what is their view on all of this almost a year later? Topics of discussion in this podcast include support of the birth mother, prenatal exposure, and time in the hospital.
