Prepare for your absence while you will be in Ukraine adopting:
· Your Ukrainian adoption agency and adoption facilitator
should provide you with a Ukrainian mobile phone; however,
calling to the U.S. will be expensive, but you will want to stay
in touch with loved ones at home.
· Will you bring a computer or tablet to Skype? If so,
speak with your mobile carrier about fees and costs. In most
cases if you use Wi-Fi, you will not be charged for anything you
do, but make sure to confirm this as every wireless plan is
different and you don't want a very unpleasant surprise when you
get your bill.
· Make sure you have electrical adaptors for Ukraine.
(Your adoption agency or adoption facilitator should provide you
with a sample packing list.)
· What if your Ukrainian adoption trip goes longer than
expected? Discuss if one parent will return to the US. Is there a
friend or family member who might come over and help? If so, make
sure they have all their travel documents in order and are
· If you have children, where will they stay? How can you
help them adjust to your absence? Do you want to leave daily
notes for them?
· Do you want to prepare birthday and other event cards
for those you might miss during your absence?
