Updated Situations

My goodness, where did the fall go? Happy December to everybody and hope your Christmas preparations are going well!

Myles' Story


I love this family! Theirs is my fastest adoption to date, but it was a long time coming for them. They went through so much pain and a loss that most of us can't imagine prior to deciding to adopt. They now have a sweet baby boy with the biggest smile ever! I remember, too, how special their adoption was because of how instantly mom knew this little guy was her son. We thought we could never get everything in on time, but it's amazing what can be done when a Mama is working for her baby! I feel so honored to have been part of their journey but mostly to now consider them friends. Here is Myles' story:

Our adoption story starts with the loss of our triplets at 20 weeks. We held our children in our arms as they passed away, and I looked at my husband and said never again. We started by pursuing fostering to adopt, but on my birthday we decided to pursue domestic infant adoption. I got serious about it around June 12th, this is also when I contacted Karalee, and signed up with CAC. On June 17th she told us about this little boy that would be due on July 23rd. I told her I just knew he was our son. We were shown on June 18th, matched, and he was born on June 24th! Yes, our adoption journey lasted all of 12 days. Without Karalee and CAC we wouldn't have our little Myles home with us right now.

Family Fundraiser

I have the most amazing and inspirational family, the Wondras, that I'm currently working with. They have been trying to have a family for many years and their road has been very difficult and full of roadblocks. But their faith never wavers. They know they'll be parents and they are so full of grace and love and beauty. They are currently matched and have a bit of a financial emergency on their hands. If you feel so moved, please visit either of these two stores - one is an etsy photography story and one is a scrap booking store. (Christmas is coming!!! Great gift ideas!) Both have pledged to donate 50% of all of their profits to this family to help them bring their little one home. If you aren't able or feel moved in another way, please pray for them and for the little girl who they're working so hard to bring home. Thank you!

Caitlyn's Story


This is from one of my first "bloggy" friends on my personal blog and favorite clients, Tracy. She and her husband adopted their daughter in three months - here's their story:

My husband and I learned we had infertility issues and opted for adoption. Unfortunately we chose a bad agency and were chosen by w/an adoption scammer. After that we decided to try fertility treatments and were unsuccesful so we returned to adoption and since we had had such a negative agency experience before chose Christian Adoption Consultants because they look into how honest and ethical each agency they use is. We felt reassured. We also were reassured that we didn't have to pay money up front since we had been burned before.

After signing up w/CAC,and applying to the agencies they recommended, we were chosen in THREE months which was far quicker than we had expected. That day we had been away at our family's vacation house in the mountains and we saw a white dove. A white dove in the PA mountains? Not common. We were away w/parents and everyone hoped it was a "sign" and to our surprise it was. That night, a Sunday, we got a call about our daughter.

We went into work on Monday, told our employers, Tuesday flew to Florida where we checked into the hotel, drove to BRU because we had NO baby equipment, and drove to the agency owners home. It was pretty amazing. I had no idea how to burp a baby or feed a baby, but the agency owner showed me. The agency owners husband installed the recently purchased car seat into the rental car. I remember wondering if she was nuts giving people who didn't now how to do such basic things a child, but they did.

Our daughter Caitlyn is 2 1/2 now, so smart, and a little ball of energy.

Updated Adoption Situations

Happy fall!! Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous time of year! I can't help but marvel at God's handiwork when all the trees are so bright with color. What a beautiful world He's created for us:)

Also, remember that Christian Adoption Consultants simply posts these “available adoption situations” to notify our existing and prospective clients. The “available situations” list in no means guarantees a particular baby or child. It simply lists situations from the agencies we recommend, which have not been matched with a prospective adoptive couple at the time they are listed.

Share the love!! :) CAC discounts

Some very happy personal news - our son's adoption was finalized yesterday!! :) As many of you have experienced, it's an awesome, awesome day for the family. And in perfect timing - CAC is offering a really great discount right now!! We're offering 15% off of any consulting package and 20% off of our minority program package. I'm so excited to get to offer that, especially with it coinciding with our own finalization. For more info, email me at karalee@christianadoptionconsultants.com

I also want to share a beautiful thing I read on a friend's blog:
"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared"
Perfection!! I love that so much!

Adoption Information: U.S. Newborn, International, Foster Adoption Resources | Adoptive Families

One of the best pieces of advice I got when we were looking to adopt as far as medical/drug/alcohol issues, etc. was to find a pediatrician and ask him or her our questions directly. We all know you can go on Google and find a wealth of info- some good, some terrifying, and some completely inaccurate. I found that going directly to my pediatrician not only eased my mind, but set us up for success in the long run because our doctor was privy to all of our child's health info even before the adoption. I loved this article in Adoptive Families magazine that talks about choosing a pediatrician who is adoption-sensitive. We knew our pediatrician was the right fit after he sat down and made time with us for a face to face meeting before the child who was to become our daughter was even born. That sort of time spent and attention to our fears told us he was THE one. :) There are definitely different concerns for children adopted internationally, and finding a pediatrician who specializes in Adoption/Foster Care might be the best road there. You can find that info on the American Academy of Pediatrics website. I'll also link to the actual Adoptive Families article which includes a little checklist of things to look for in a pediatrician.

Planning for "THE CALL!"

One of the hardest things about the adoption process can be the wait. You scramble to get all of the applications, etc. filled out, you hurry to get your home study completed, and then you wait. Wait for situations, wait to be shown, wait for THE CALL. :) Sometimes, as some of my clients have personally found out, it's incredibly quick! And other times, it can be frustrating. Adoptive Families magazine has a great article on their website this month called "Planning for the Call." There are six different tips ranging from being prepared because really, it can happen anytime, to planning for being away from home (who will pick up your mail? :) and planning your homecoming. It's a great article with some nice tips on how to prepared and how to be flexible and enjoy each moment. You can find the entire article HERE.

Updated situations and a personal update

Hello and Happy New Year!
I can't believe it's Feb. already and I'm just now getting a new years greeting up:) The first of the year brought a huge blessing to our home. Our family grew with the addition of a beautiful baby boy. I have been so renewed in my commitment to and love of adoption. It's truly a miracle that comes out a great deal of hurt sometimes, but 100% a gift from God. And we didn't only gain our son, but we gained a piece of our hearts forever in his birth mom. She's awesome, and our entire experience couldn't have been better. Thank you so much to all my fantastic families who have been so supportive and caring during this process. I am honored to be part of your adoption journeys and it's been an honor to have you as part of ours, as well! :)

There are a few updated situations I wanted to be sure you all know about, too. And as always, these are just a few of the many situations with the agencies we work with. If you have questions, email me anytime!
