Day 2 was good as well. I am feeling more comfortable, getting to know some other couples there.
I thought of something I should have mentioned yesterday - infertility. It wasn't a huge deal. I was worried we'd have to go into our back stories about 'why' we were looking at adoption. Nope. It was mentioned as a reason people adopt, but not focused on. I really liked that. When I first found out we had to do PRIDE training, I had horrible visions of boo-hoo-fests about infertility - that just isn't the focus.
We did today talk about loss, and acknowledge some of the loss associated with adoption - including what we would lose not giving birth to this child.
DH and I are more excited. I'm starting to get this sense of "Yes, there are issues associated with adopting slightly older children through CAS. Here are some tools to deal with them." - instead of sort of being thrown to the wolves.
