Young, Single, And Adopting: What to do the FIRST night! - hate the idea of checking for bugs/lice but it's a good idea and there are good & tactful ways to do this step discussed in the article. Make sure kids know they're safe. Show them you locking doors/windows etc. Ask about a light at night. I like to call them "mini lamps". Makes kids feel less childish and self conscious about using them.

Puppy adoption themed kids birthday party. ADORABLE idea!! I want to do this for Brooklyn & her friends when she's old enough to invite some kids to her birthday party.

Possibly one of the best books for adoptive families and I love how it tackles many of the rude and inappropriate questions non-adoptive families always feel the need to ask in a positive way while reassuring children of their purpose :)
