However, a June 3rd, 2016 article found on Bustle (www.bustle.com), entitled “How Does The Adoption Process Work?” does a surprisingly good job at being both of these things. The article isn’t perfect (as evidenced by some of their adoption language choices), but as far as articles designed to explain the process to folks that know nothing about it, it’s a pretty good read.
