    Wow you only had to wait about a year to get your son. We where going to adopt from China but my husband got tired of waiting so we adopted from PA Swan network. She was a foster child. Lacey was seven years old when we got her and the adoption took almost a year. She had to live with us six months before thing could get started. I wish we would have still went with China and foster care. I just love kids. I wish I could stay home and be a full time foster parent but my husband wouldn’t want to do that. We are very happy with our daugher Lacey.
