I have come across an excellent post by Jen Hatmaker (via Our House blog), that gives some excellent pointers on how we can be supportive and useful to the friends and family that are int he process or have adopted a child.
It is honest, well-intended, rooted in personal experience, and sprinkled with humor. If you know of someone who is about to adopt, has adopted, or are an adopting parent yourself - please visit the site.
I know that I have done at least a couple of "no-no's" that probably made my friends cringe. But thank God for forgiveness, right? =)
