I am a single 18 years old, I have babysat for 10 years, helped raised my nephew, worked at a preschool, worked with special needs, currently a full time preschool teacher (and my children would be able to go there for a discount), and have an orientation this Monday for Adoption. I know I am young but I am financially stable, will be getting my own apartment very soon, and do know what I am doing. I am hoping to adopt a 1-5 year old.. Any advice?
