Adoptive Families Article

Hello! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We had hoped to show Lily the fireworks for the first time, but she was FAST asleep an hour before they started. That's my girl - she's a great sleeper! :)

We subscribe to Adoptive Families magazine, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has adopted or is in the process. They have the best articles! There was one this month about the wait. It can feel unbearable and like there is no way you can wait longer, but this article beautifully details not just the wait but that moment that a baby is placed in your arms and you know that every second of the wait was well worth it. It's so difficult - I know; I've been there. But I honestly believe the children meant for us come to us. We experienced a failed match before Lily was born, and as painful as it was, that baby was meant to be parented by his birth mom. And if that had worked out for us, we wouldn't have our beautiful daughter who WAS meant to be with us:)
If you're interested, I'll link the article HERE.

I also want to let you and any other potential adoptive families know that we have many new situations coming to us from the agencies we work with. Check out our website or email me anytime for more info.
Have a great day! :)
