The state provides classes and a case worker, but I am looking to do some reading on my own. We have just started the process, by that I mean we received the forms last night and will start filling them out today.
This will be our first child, so generic parenting material is also appreciated.
Information about transracial adoptions (we are white) would be helpful as that seems probable due to the demographics in our location (Milwaukee).
Special note: I was on the fence about whether we should adopt from foster care or go the traditional route of adopting a newborn, but these threads convinced me to do what I can to help someone who's already in need. Go internet!
