New Baby Checklist Adoption

 

ADOPTION CHECKLIST

Before adopting:

Consider using one or more of the following to find a child to adopt:
- Private agencies - the wait may be up to 10 years, usually because prospective parents are looking for a newborn and/or Caucasian infant

- Public agencies - usually cheapest

- Independent - prospective adoptive parents deal directly with the birth mother

- Networking - Ensure your friends and associates know that you'd like to adopt and ask them to mention it to their friends and associates

- Advertising, e.g., newspapers

Get help with the process, e.g.:
- Lawyer (make sure you hire one that specializes in Adoptions, it makes it a lot easier and they will know the laws inregards to adoptions)

- Social worker (If you are using an agency, they will provide one for you)

- Adoption agency

Be aware that many children available for adoption from many foreign countries may have problems adapting to adoptive parents and may have various health problems, learning difficulties, etc.
- Do your research on the country that you are looking into

 

After finding a prospective child to adopt:

Get as much information as you can about the child's background - to help determine if the child might be violent towards you, have learning difficulties, have health problems, etc.
Determine how long the birth parents have to back out of the adoption - Research your state laws and the laws form the country that you are adopting from.

After adopting:

Be aware that adoptive parents can suffer from some depression similar to post-partum depression, due to the letdown from the anticipation and from being overwhelmed by the major changes in your daily routine. Introduce the concept of adoption to the adopted child in a warm and supportive manner
Keep assuring your adopted child that:
- He/she is not different from other kids

- He/she is secure and loved

If your adopted child asks questions relating to his/her birth parents and adoption and is younger than approx. age 4:
Listen to his/her question(s) carefully so you don't answer a question he/she didn't ask
Take the time to answer his/her question(s) carefully but honestly, although not in too much detail.

Travel Checklist

 

1. Before you leave for the airport:
- Decide if you are checking luggage, or only taking a small carry on bag. Organize your packing; be sure that you carry on the plane with you medicines, money, etc – anything that would be a true problem if your luggage didn’t show up at the same as you (doesn’t happen often, but can). Make sure you have your driver’s license, ticket and car reservation paperwork, sufficient cash with you. Don’t put locks on suitcases; they’ll cut them off and check the contents. Not every checked suitcase is physically searched, but many people have had it happen several times. Pack clothes in large clear zip lock baggies (to put in your suitcase, of course!)to eliminate the ick factor if this bugs you.

2. Get to the airport 1 to 2 hours before your flight leaves for U.S destinations. One hour is usually enough, 2 gives you plenty of time to orient yourself to everything. If you don’t have seat assignments getting there earlier gives you a better chance at getting an aisle or window seat instead of a middle seat.

3. Go to the ticket counter for your airline. You usually have the option of using an e-ticket machine to get boarding passes or talking to a real person at a counter. I would go to the counter. Tell them it’s your first time flying. You’ll show your driver’s license, give them luggage that can’t be carried on the plane. They’ll give you boarding passes, usually with a seat assignment, put stickers on that paperwork that are receipts for your luggage and tell you what gate your plane is leaving from.

4. Usually you will then head for a main security check area. Everybody gets in line to go thru metal detectors. Watch what everyone in front of you does, it may vary from airport to airport. Typically you’ll put carryon luggage, purses, coats, jackets, thru an x-ray screening machine. The contents of your pockets as well, in small bins provided for that. Be prepared to show your boarding pass and your id again. You might have to take your shoes off and them thru the machine too. Don’t freak if you set the metal detector off; it’s probably your belt buckle or something. Don’t freak if they ask you to step aside for an extra frisking. Its random only means them waving a metal detector wand close to your body (no actual touching).

5. Now all you have to do is find your departure gate. There are signs everywhere; you got there early, so you have plenty of time. Find your gate, then go explore. You want to be in the general area 20-30 minutes before you leave. In the meantime, you can spend more money than you imagined for a soft drink or use restrooms way more spacious then those on the plane.

6. They’ll call you to board the plane; usually VIP’s and those who need help first, then in seating assignment rows from the back to the front. Wait until your group is called. Stuff you don’t need to get to should be stowed in the compartments above the seat.


7. When you get there, follow the signs to the baggage claim area. Follow the herd to the right pickup area. The car rental desks will be somewhere nearby. If in doubt there is almost always an information desk in the baggage claim area.


If it is not a direct flight, you will not have to go thru the check in and security process at the middle airport. Just find the right gate to go to; you should already have your boarding pass for that next flight.

Don’t be surprised if planes run late, they often do.

If you made reservations well in advance --- call or use the internet to confirm that the flight info is still correct. More often lately we’ve found that the airline has rearranged flight schedules and we were flying a different flight and time than we originally booked. They always get us there, just not how we thought we were going.

A couple of other tips:

Do not take anything in your carry on luggage, purse, bag, or person that is sharp. It will be confiscated at the screening. This includes scissors, metal nail files, nail clippers with that nail-cleaning piece on the end, metal tooth pick/cleaners, pocket knife, etc. Anything sharp and pointy.

Most airports require adults to remove shoes and place on the screening conveyor belt now. Wear shoes that slip on and slip off for ease of removal.

Sometimes unexpected events require the plane to sit for awhile after you board to double check that everything is in order. Do not worry. If something unusual happens, there are usually people standing by to help -- just tell them you are new to flying and feeling a little confused. Airline people are usually helpful and friendly.

If you are making a connection, ask for assistance as soon as you get off the first plane. There is sometimes a narrow window of time to get to the next gate, and someone's guidance will help you a lot.

If you get your boarding passes before you arrive at the airport, you can go straight to baggage check-in and skip a step at the airport.

While you cannot lock your suitcases, you can slip a twist-tie through the locking device to secure the zipper from coming open. They will not take it off unless they feel the need to inspect it, and if they don't, it will give some extra security to the suitcase not coming open in transit.

Put one of those paper luggage tags (available at the airport baggage check-in) on everything you carry on to the plane. That way if you accidentally leave something on the plane, it will get back to you.

If the pressure builds up in your ears during take-off and decent, pinch your nose tight, close your mouth tight, and blow out. It often works to release the pressure behind your ear drums. Sometimes chewing gum will help, and so will yawning, if you can get one going.
