It’s always good to have a list of questions to ask the HAP (hopeful adoptive parents). Your agency should give you a basic list of questions to ask but please remember the importance of this.
How would you describe your partners personality? Then ask how would they describe their own personality?
How did you know you wanted to become a parent?
Why are you choosing adoption instead of adopting from a foster home?
How would you discipline?
What are some of your family traditions? How & do you celebrate holidays?
Do you have pets? How do you feel about pets? What you do if our child wanted a pet?
What is your definition of open, semi open, & closed adoption and which do you want and why?
What kind of relationship do you want with me after we leave the hospital & once adoption is final?
