I'm adopting a toddler! She should be joining our family very soon, so I've been getting our house ready for her. We have to baby-proof everything, put the finishing touches on her room, we just bought a booster seat for our dining room and I'm in the market for a car seat. Busy, busy! But, more importantly, we're trying to prepare for her needs. I've been reading, trying to gain a better understanding of what she may experience when she leaves the home she knows and joins ours.
Parents who've already brought children home, what did you do to prepare for your child's needs?
