We all have goals, whether we know it or not. We have goals to save for the future or to travel, to buy a home or a new car, or to purchase items we need and want to make our lives more enjoyable. And the majority of us want to start a family.

Successful adoptive parents know that timing, planning, and dedication to completing their adoption goal can make its achievement much easier and smoother. As with any goal, there are basic steps that must be taken to attain the desired end result. Those who have gone before know it takes time and patience and following a concise plan to realize adoption success.

Reachable goals are SPECIFIC.
To reach your goal of adoption, your brain must know exactly, and precisely, what you are trying to accomplish. Never state your goal with vague terms like “some day I would like to adopt” or “in the future” or “maybe we will adopt.” Be specific! If you want to adopt a newborn within two years, then specify those exact details. If you want to find an adoption professional this month and start the process, be exact. Your brain can help you accomplish almost anything if it knows precisely what you are aiming for.
