I was reading an article today that said in the state where I live, there is a 10 day waiting period after the birth of a child for the birth parents to change their mind. Adoptive parents have the choice of taking the baby home immediately and possibly having the birth parents change their mind and take the baby back. Or, they could have a temporary foster home take the baby for those 10 days and if the 10 days passes without incident, then take their baby home. Then if the birth parents change their minds, you are not attached.

So, what would you do? If you were adopting a newborn and the parents had a 10 day window to change their minds, would you take the baby home immediately or let someone else care for the baby until you are "sure" that baby is going to be your child?
