· Don't hesitate to find a great counselor to work with
you and your family. It will be helpful to discuss the new
challenges you are facing and healthy to have a safe
non-judgmental outlet for venting frustrations. You may want to
start meeting with them before you travel to the Ukraine to have
an outlet for all your emotions regarding the Ukrainian adoption
process. Ask for recommendations from your Ukrainian adoption
agency or Ukrainian adoption facilitator.
· Keep a written or scrapbook journal documenting your
feelings and activities daily throughout this once in a lifetime
Ukrainian adoption process.
