Preparing for Post-Adoption Depression
Yes, you are waiting to adopt and obviously not experiencing any Post-Adoption Depression. However, this is a good time to read about the possible signs so if it affects you, you’ll be prepared.
I never once thought this would be something that would have happened to me. Why would I be depressed once I get a baby, the one thing in the world that would make me the happiest I’ve ever been? Well, I definitely experienced it and didn’t even realize it until a year or so afterward. If I had done my research before I adopted, instead of afterward, I may have recognized it and gotten help.
I’d recommend to each of you to read this recent article titled, 5 Ways to Banish the Post-Adoption Blues. This would be an article to share with your partner or close friends. If you do start to feel down once you adopt, they may notice the signs and help remind you of ways to feels better.
