Lighthouse Experts Provide Insight about Adoption Process in Cincinnati Magazine Article
Becky Story, Lighthouse Youth & Family Services licensing specialist, along with Lighthouse’s Teresa Davis, provided insightful contributions to a Cincinnati Magazine article about the decision to adopt.
“For parents considering adoption, the decision to love and care for a child for a lifetime can also come with an additional upfront monetary investment, reams of paperwork, probing background checks, and months or years of waiting. It can involve integrating a new child into existing sibling relationships. It can mean helping a child overcome trauma that led to separation from their birth parents. It can also be an incredibly rewarding gift to parent a child and give them a home. Like parenting generally, it can be hard—and entirely worth it.”
