It's Foster Care Awareness Month! Have you ever thought about becoming a foster parent? Here's part 1 of things to consider when considering fostering.
Adoption is Normal
A lot of times we talk about the differences in adoption, but we never talk about just how absolutely normal adoption really is.
Adoption is Exhausting
There are many levels of tiredness in the adoption process. Planning, waiting and when the children are home. Let's face it, adoption is exhausting!
Adoption is Emotional
I didn't expect the parallels that I saw tonight between The Crown's Aberfan episode and adoption. But they were there.. and they were deep.
Adoption is Adjustment
We held a yard sale on a Sunday. That's a strange thing here in the South. The weather made us adjust. That's a great parallel with adoption. It's all about adjusting.
