Anybody Else?


I’m just wondering if there is anybody else in this group that is active and/or following these boards.  It’s been hard finding other people adopting from Hungary and I’d really like to connect and be able to share experiences.

My husband and I adopted our special needs daughter from Hungary five years ago (Oct-Nov 2011) when she was 4 years old.  The Hungary adoption program is small so it’s hard to reach out to others who’ve adopted from there.  When we were going through the adoption process, there had only been one family with our agency who had gone ahead of us and we weren’t able to connect so we pretty much went blind.  I did connect with 4-5 families who went through the process after us and was able to help them through and give them pointers about what to expect on both sides of the Atlantic.  I am still active friends with a couple of these families on facebook as well as our adoption coordinator, my daughter’s caseworker and her foster mother.  Even though it’s been a while since we’ve been through the process, if you would like, I would be willing to communicate with you.  We absolutely adored Hungary and very much want to go back one day.  Best of luck in your adoption and just let me know if you want to connect.

Hello Tracy,
We brought our 3 year old son home in May 2015.  I know it is hard to connect with other parents since adoptions from Hungary rather on the small scale. I’d be happy to talk to you and share our experience. Let me know how you would like to connect.
