International vs. Domestic?
Question by sierra_91_2000: International vs. Domestic?
Why do people adopt internationally vs. Domestic? Do you get your children faster than the other? Is one cheaper than the other?
I’m curious b/c my husband and I are thinking about adoption and I’ve been reading/researching. Right now it’s pretty overwhelming. Just like some feedback. Thanks

To make a choice between international and domestic would require more of an indepth answer than I can give here. My husband and I are doing both domestic and international. We have had our dossier in China for a year now (and anticipate another 3-4 yr wait) and we are in the middle of a domestic match. I would recommend you make a lists of things that are important in adoption to you and your husband and based on your list decide whether domestic or international (or both) is a good match for you. Good luck, both paths are long but fulfilling. And yes in the beginning it is overwhelming. We are using a large china only agency for our china adoption and for our domestic an expectant mom went to a lawyer searching for adoptive parents and found us.
