Boy Moms I totally get it now. I didn’t before. I love being a girl mom so much I couldn’t imagine a boy could compare. But I was wrong. This guys is a mama’s boy for life. Love this boy more than I could’ve dreamed. He owns me. 👶🏽 💙 #boymomlife #boymomadventures #adoptionstory #mamasboy #motherhood

A little throwback to when we first announced that we were adopting... I was so excited and yet so naive. We finished our home study so fast that there wasn’t much time to really get into the wide scope of education when it came to adoption. We truly had only “skimmed” the surface of everything that lied beneath. This is where I failed, and truly why I try and share the real and the raw to best of my abilities. I want those seeking adoption as an option to really see the happy and the hard, the highs and the lows. I wish there were more applicable sources that help prepare you as you go through the process. Here are some things I didn’t realize. The scope ranges from simple things to intense. I didn’t realize the extremely hard parts of adoption like what it looks like for everyone after placement. How the “control” totally shifts, and how big of a transition that is. I didn’t know that my heart would ache for Kira knowing that my arms were full and hers were now empty. I didn’t understand that my child would have trauma surrounding adoption regardless of how wonderful of a mom I was going to be. I was even naive to the simple things like adoption language. I missed my mark as a hopeful adoptive mom. I should have been more prepared. I learned some things the hard way, and I am continuing to learn as we move down the current of this journey. I will say that you can never know enough or be too prepared. If you’re hoping to adopt ask the hard questions. Even the ones that are uncomfortable to ask. You will never regret having these tools to operate down the road. #adoptionjourney #adoptionstory #adoptionislove #adoptionawareness #utahadoption #openadoption #infertility #infertilitysucks fertilitysupport #infertilityjourney #infertilityawareness #adoptionislove #adoptionrocks #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #infertilityjourney #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #adoptionrocks

We don’t need to share DNA for me to love every tiny detail that makes up how beautifully and wonderfully she was made 💛 In two days we finalize our adoption and if you’re unsure what that step means- it means that a Judge, a court and our State will officially view her as our child and as a Matteson. A new birth certificate will be created that includes the name we’ve given her and our names listed as her parents. This past week we also received a copy of her original birth certificate. It list the name her birth mom gave her and her birth mom’s name. Both birth certificates are equally as important to Remi’s life and story. I’m happy she will have both. Her birth family is so remarkable, they want to attend our Court Zoom hearing and watch that significant day for Remi and for all of us ♥️ We know many of our family and friends will be watching from all over too.

It’s not a secret. This account was created with the intention of connecting us with an expectant mother considering adoption. Pursuing independent/private adoption is complicated, and I am constantly second guessing myself when posting...Am I hurting someone who was negatively impacted by adoption? Am I posting too much and annoying someone? Am I posting too little for our family to be noticed? Years from now, will Collins care that I posted about her? UGH! So many questions, so much second guessing. Sharing our story is hard. Not because I am not proud of it, but because I am SO proud of it that I want to protect it with my whole heart. Part of putting yourself out there, is subjecting yourself to criticism and differing opinions. But, it is hard to see someone take the root of my happiness and turn it into something less than that. My family is beautiful, and I am so proud of how it was created. There will always be people who don’t agree with the way our family was made. People who don’t know us, or our story, but will be sure to insult our integrity. But for now, I’m going to keep pressing on...because I’m committed to growing our family 🤍 #hopingtoadopt #birthmomsrock #loveisbrave #adoption #waitingtoadopt #hopefuladoptivefamily #hopefuladoptiveparents #openadoption #privateadoption #domesticadoption #infantadoption #adoptionislove #adoptionisbeautiful #blessedbyadoption #adoptionstory #adoptionjourney

The other day it was the first time I walked LO and doggy together! It went surprisingly well! He didn’t pull and stayed with the buggy! . You forget how much our pets have to adjust as well! Out of nowhere a little being is in their home, and having our constant attention. . I just want to recognise how well our dogs have adjusted, I’m definitely a proud doggy mummy! They are amazing with her! It definitely feels like they know this little human need our constant love and attention, and they don’t mind. . I’d love to know how everyone else’s fur babies have adjusted?😁 . . #adoptionuk #adoption #adoptionjourney #adoptionstory #adoptionislove #adoptionstories #adoptionukcommunity #adoptionsupport #fertilityjourney #adoptiveparents #adoptee #ourstory #becomingparents #infertility #infertilityjourney #followourjourney #ukadoptioncommunity #ukadoption #adoptionstory #adoptionstoryuk

@kyledooley and I do not share much on social media but we are excited to share that we are active with our adoption agency, @americanadoptions ! Our close friends and family are aware of our difficult journey to become parents. We have navigated through failed fertility treatments, miscarriage, foster care, and the adoption process. The adoption process thus far has not been a completely easy process so we are choosing to celebrate this moment of becoming active because of that. But we also know we are so incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity to grow our family in this capacity and to have even gotten this far. Although we celebrate this milestone, we know that adoption is not a linear path to parenthood in any sense and what happens from here could perhaps be even more challenging than what we have already faced. Adoption is messy. In adoption there is inherently loss and trauma. So while we are excited, we also tread lightly. We have worked hard to educate ourselves on all of the pieces of adoption, listening to the stories of birth mothers, adoptees, and adoptive parents. We want to go into adoption with as much empathy and understanding as possible. And we are going into adoption with an immense amount of hope, no matter how naïve that may be. It is something we must hold onto! Many thanks to our friends and family that wrote references, helped with our profile, and starred in our video in the midst of COVID craziness. So many of you were involved in getting us to this point, and that is so special to us! Please feel free to watch our video, read our profile, and share with others! Also, if you know of anyone that is navigating infertility or is interested in adoption, we are always happy to connect with them! Link is in my bio 😊 #adoption #adoptionjourney #hopefuladoptiveparents #adoptionstory #adoptioncommunity

This statement really resonates with us. We truly believe that blood does not always make people family. We feel so lucky that we get to choose to bring a baby into our home and create a family🥰 We feel so blessed that we get to experience this journey together and with all of you ❤ What does family mean to you? ❤🌈😊

**#FlashbackFriday Feature** Fairfax, a rattie in the wilderness 🌳🐀⛈ A couple of years ago, we were contacted by a person who spotted a domestic rat pawing at her patio sliding door. She contacted us right away, fearing it will not survive the severe thunderstorm that was approaching the area. Our awesome rat coordinator at the time gave the woman directions to catch the lil' buddy. Luckily, she was successful and Fairfax arrived safely to one of our foster homes. The family fell in ❤ with him IMMEDIATELY and ended up adopting this fuzzy baby! We are so grateful for good people who take the time to save little lives like Fairfax's. Also, to our donors who make heartwarming stories like this possible. THANK YOU! . . #loveissmall #adoptionstory #ratadoptions #ratstagram #cuteratphotos #cuteanimals #cuteanimalpictures #cuterats #smallangelsrescue #rattiesofinstagram #rodentsofinstagram #rattescue #rodentrescue #ratsofinstagram #rattiesofinstagram #animallovers #ratlovers #heartwarmingstories

DAY NINE was a hard day. Gabriel’s muscles were exhausted. He did some good work but also took advantage of cuddles with his therapists at every opportunity! Gabriel has been doing a really good job in his speech therapy hour! Speech is at the end of a long three works of working his muscles but he really enjoys getting to sing, play toys, and play on his ipad! Gabriel recently got a new communication device & learning a new device is similar to learning a new language, he is doing great! Today he was very intentional with his choices on his device which is nice to see.

So excited to get reading my new book. As I have written on other posts, my husband and I have three biological children(25,22, and 19.) We adopted from Guatemala in 2006, our son is now 14 years old. In 2012 we adopted from the domestic infant program in Maine, he is about to turn 9 this coming Saturday! My husband and I are currently filling out the paperwork to complete our home study for a third adoption. I feel as though I have been blessed many times in this life. I am hopeful that when this life is at its end I can say “God i used what you gave me and followed my heart.” We will complete the process and have faith in Gods plan.. maybe one child, maybe a sibling group. Whatever the plan is I am my heart is ready. Much love friends.❤️

Patricia is a birth mother who is part of an open adoption; she writes below about watching her son graduate from high school with his adoptive parents, 👨‍👩‍👦 "On the day he graduated from high school, we celebrated our journey together. 🎓 All the years of questioning my choice were washed away as I listened to his accomplishments and watched the joy and pride in his eyes. During the ceremony his principal asked all those who had loved and supported the graduates in their journey to this moment, their parents, to stand and be recognized. I thought of Joe’s parents and how thankful I was that he had them. ♥️ Joe’s father was on my left, his mother on my right. They each looked at me, took hold of my hands – and we stood together."

“I wish people knew that children in foster care just need someone rooting for them in life, no matter what,” says Jennifer, who adopted two of her children – Koda and Kaia – from foster care. Koda was two years old, and Kaia was just three months old, when they were placed with Jennifer’s family. Both children had been in foster care since birth and faced an uncertain future, but a forever family changed their journey. “Family means forever,” Jennifer says. “It means unconditional love and never-ending support, understanding, safety, reliability, faith and stability.” Do you have a foster care adoption story? We would love to hear it.

⁣ I bought this book to read to my Daughter, and I am SO EXCITED. As I’ve previously mentioned, growing up, I did not have a lot of exposure to Korean culture. I watched Korean Cinderella and ate Korean food, but not much beyond that, hence the journey I am on now. As I reflect and think of the different ways that I would like to know and incorporate more of my Korean culture, I realize this is also a part of my Daughters’ story. It is important to me that she grows up feeling confident in her identity as a half Korean woman. ⁣ ⁣ I recently had a very cool and very significant zoom call with a distant biological cousin. She is the first biological relative I have ever met. Anyways, she reminded me that I am not on a journey of trying to become more Korean. I am Korean. I am merely freeing my Korean self and learning who she is and how she wants to exist and be seen and heard in this world. ⁣ ⁣ I will leave you with this short story: My husband made a joke the other day referring to me as “out” (of the Korean closet) and being “Openly Korean” 😂🤣. I hope that isn’t offensive to anyone. I thought it was quite funny and accurate in a lot of ways. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #callmejoohee #adopted #adoption #korea #southkorea #seoul #incheon #heritage #roots #asian #asianamerican #asianamericanstory #adoptionstory #aapi #children #childrensbooks #folktale #learnkorean #representationmatters

I love this shot in @howtobuyababy of Jane and Charlie taking apart a crib. You always see couples excitedly putting a crib together as they start their journey of parenthood, but you don’t see them ever taking one apart to become parents. I love the symbolism. It’s not that, as adoptive parents, we only wanted a baby. It’s that babies are the most obvious and are typically the way people become parents. So friend after friend finishes having children and they offer you a crib and you think ‘sure, why not take it. We’re hoping to be parents some day.’ Or you found out about a potential adoption and got a crib all ready within in days, only for that adoption to not be the one. Then somehow you end up having a crib in your house without a baby. And that crib needs to be taken apart because you are going to be parents to older children. There’s something beautiful and sad to me about a couple being so lucky to become parents to children that they will never get to put to sleep in a crib. There’s something healing and restorative about taking that crib apart together screw by screw. Thank you to our by amazing director @adeymaggs DP @nhaight for capturing this amazing scene. #infertility #infertilitycommunity #infertilityawareness #fertility #fertilityjourney #fertilitysupport #fertilityspecialist #adoption #adopt #adoptivemom #adoptiveparents #fostercare #hopingtoadopt #tryingtoadopt #adoptionislove #adoptionishard #adoptioncommunity #adoptionawareness #cbc #cbcgem #webseries #digitalseries #adoptionstory #adopt #grief #griefjourney #ivf #iui #adoptivefamily #adoptivefamilies

“As followers of Jesus we know that while foster care may be hard, it can be a sweet burden to carry. It will cost us time, money, comfort, emotions and sleep - BUT the healing and hope it can bring for a child far outweighs the cost.” -Arizona127 (check out the #linkinbio to read more from our article with @focusonthefamily + @waitnomoreofficial ) With more than 14,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system, there is a great need for people who will count the cost - and prayerfully consider their role in caring for Arizona’s vulnerable children and families 🏡 Ever thought about getting involved?

Although open adoption is the norm today in the U.S., mothers and children looking to reunite from the Baby Scoop Era of the 1950s, 60s, and early 70s need a lot of luck and, often, changes in state law. Adoption agencies during this time went to great lengths to prevent any contact between adopted children and their birth mothers–who had often been coerced into giving up their babies. Journalist Gabrielle Glaser’s new book “American Baby” tells the story of the Baby Scoop Era through the lens of one teenaged mother who got pregnant at 16 years old and her journey to keep her son.

I can tend to overwhelm my kids with heavier emotions & realities. It’s something I have to pay really close attention to, intentionally mother in the tension of honesty + age-appropriate conversations. When they ask if or why I’m sad, I rarely say “I’m fine;” I explain age-appropriately what is upsetting me. It’s important kids know adults get sad too; it’s also important not to teach kids to suppress their emotions by responding with “I’m fine” when you clearly arent. That’s setting them up for the inability to connect inside relationships. Because being blunt about how I’m feeling is natural for me, I have noticed at times my 4 & 5 year olds worry when they shouldn’t. They too are navigating how to be a person. I do not want them to feel as tho they’re responsible for my emotional well-being; I do want them to learn empathy & also have freedom to express their own emotions. I invite a lot of conversations about adoption, missing siblings, different losses they’ve had...when maybe right then they just want to play with their dinosaurs & magnatiles 😅 A strength as an #enneagramfour is the natural inclination to validate my children’s emotions, empower them to be honest about their experiences. A struggle as an #enneagramfour is over identifying with emotions, spiraling deeper into heaviness. Shame works really hard in my life. Mistakes I make as a parent or otherwise can pull me into depression & downward spiral FAST. I’ve had to learn how to remain grounded, & teach myself + my kids our mistakes can serve a purpose, instead of serve shame. The enneagram has been an impactful tool for me in spotting specific patterns; it has given me a window into myself, seeing damaging cycles. To me, this is freedom, this is healing. I’m wondering: do you know your enneagram type? Have you dug into your own patterns using the enneagram? Are you interested in it?

I actually have no idea how many adoptions turn out successfully because whenever I encounter an angry adoptee, I block them. But I’m sure it’s super rare for adoptees to be traumatized because I’m not.

Foster care can be hard, but it fills your heart with love. Yes, there is heartache at times but there is also joy and happiness. I think the first big decision is to find an agency that they can believe in and will believe in them. An agency that will teach them, guide them and support them. An agency that helps find respite, has support groups and ways to continue their education. Because if they have all of that it is a little easier to give the children the best that they know how, and when they hit a bump in the road they can make it over it. I know that agency is Hope & Home for us. ✨

The beginning of things. This is a still from our first interview with Kendra Potter @sister.moon.wellness 8 years ago, very pregnant with her first child. In this interview, she speaks of her fears of not being able to tell her unborn child where they came from, and her questions about whether she can call herself a Native woman if she has no knowledge of her ancestral culture. Big questions. Big belly. (And we love that she was drinking water out of an old pickle jar.) #ImageDescription Kendra sits in her apartment with one hand on her very pregnant belly, the other hand holding a jar of water. She is wearing a light blue floral dress. #adoptionstory #daughterofalostbird #nativeadoptee #nativeadoption #wheredidicomefrom #pregnancyjourney #9monthspregnant #documentaryfilmmaking #womeninfilm #adoptiondocumentary

"For me, the gift of adoption is the gift of love and family. This really solidified for me when we had our finalization hearing. Our son had already been living with us for about five months, but when the judge said that she was approving the adoption, that he was truly our son now, I felt an overwhelming feeling of happiness and peace and love... Thank you so much to Gift of Adoption for helping make this a reality for us."

. . AND YET HE WAS THERE. “We say things like God is always present, but when it comes to our actual situations and circumstances have you ever calculated that God was there? Maybe you have moments where you look back at your life and what you went through and you think to yourself that you were in it alone. But God was there. Which means that what happened in that moment only happened because God allowed it. And God only allowed what he knew you could survive and what He could ultimately redeem.”

Attachment is the heart-to-heart connection between two people, beginning with an infant and a loving mother. It is the centerpiece of all social, emotional, and cognitive human development, from conception to adulthood. And it is formed in the first three years of life.⁠ ⁠ The first year of life consists of loving parents consistently meeting the needs of their newborn, and the foundation of trust being formed.⁠ ⁠ In the second year of life, those same loving parents help the toddler learn to accept safe boundaries and explore new freedom.⁠ ⁠ And in the third year of life, the curious stage, when anything can be imagined and every day is full of questions, those parents shape and mold a mind that is maturing and growing at an incredible rate of speed.⁠ ⁠ These basic life cycles are how attachment is formed, trust is built, and conscience is developed. For children who have been rescued from homes of neglect, abuse, or other trauma, these life cycles were incomplete or non-existent. ⁠ ⁠ Whether your adopted child is a few weeks old or a teenager, you can be equipped to develop a lifetime of love and attachment with your child with our newly FREE parenting program!

WE DID IT! 🎉💛🙌🏽 . Approval panel done and dusted! Woooo! . This was nearly a week ago now. Just been celebrating and getting used to the fact we bloody did it!! We had the most anxious day, panel ran an hour and a half late, but we couldn’t have asked for a nicer bunch of people. The panel members put us at ease and then asked us a good handful of questions, which I felt we answered well because it was literally just about us. . They asked us how we found the process, what were we looking forward to, what challenges could we face, how was other half after his operation, how we would cope with other half working away Monday to Friday, what have we learnt & how will we use those skills in parenting an adoptive child, why were we interested in foster to adopt, and also a personal question about our pasts . Anyone waiting to go to panel, try and keep busy in the run up to it, but honestly you have nothing to worry about! They want you to succeed! . So now the crazy part... waiting to find our baby ❤️👶🏼 . #adoption #adoptionuk #ukadoption #ukadoptioncommunity #adoptionjourneyuk #approvalpanel #adoptionstory

Tbt! Heres my lion cut! This was the day mother had brought me to my new home. She saw me in the corner kennel of the SPCA, hunched in the back, my RBF on full blast. She come all too excitedly towards me and despite my hisses and attempts to scratch her she still wanted me. And so away I was loaded into a crate, sitting shot gun in the car of this strange human who had salty water streams coming from her eyeballs, and was chattering happy little thoughts through a phone to who is apparently my “Gamma”. When we arrived at “home” I was so happy! So happy I couldnt stop purring, and i decided to allow mother to touch me for the first time. Heck i let her give me all the pets! No more kennel, no more strange smells, no more other cats. My previous life wasnt bad, I have yet to inform mother more about it, and i often see her wondering. But I am now home, and she says its forever! We slept all night together that first night. Mother let me sleep on her pillow and her stinky breath wafting over me. And its been like that ever since. Mother needed me, and i guess i needed her. (At least for treats thats for sure)

✨📚 💕 #WorldBookDay . On World Book Day, we are remembering why The Moffles came to be. They were inspired by all the families I have worked with, who have been determined to create more stable and loving lives together. . We hope that the Moffles will help you and your child explore their experiences and celebrate their strengths. Picture books can be a wonderful resource to support you in creating new stories together, that acknowledge pain and sadness but also recognise joy and create optimism for the future. . Parents & carers who have read the Moffle stories have said that they have helped them renew their curiosity about their child’s inner life & given them hope to carry on, even when parenting is very hard. . Steph Dixon – adoptive mum: ‘Tippy Moffle’s Mirror is a wonderful book, beautifully written and as an adoptive parent I can't recommend it highly enough. Both of my children said, 'This is about me' when we read it together. Don't hesitate - buy this book.’ . #TheMoffles #shareastory #booklaunch #adoptionbooks #childrensemotions #adoptionuk #adoptionstory #adoptionjourney #fostercare #fostering #worldbookday2021 #booklover #mindfulkids #therapeuticparenting #therapybooks #therapist #traumainformed #childrensmentalhealth #traumatherapist #mindfulparenting

. . . . Today is both my birthday and my catdad’s birthday. My catdad doesn’t like being in front of the camera so his annoyance towards our paparazzi (Meowmy) really shows in photos. However he is always so kind and helps us with photos eg. using his phone to give light and letting me ride his shoulder for better angles. As you may know, I am a rescue kitty so I don’t know when is my real birthday. I was surrendered on 3rd Mar so Meowmy decided it would be more convenient to just change the bday to 4th March to match cat dad that way she has no excuse to forget either birthdays 😹🤦🏻‍♀️ Thank you everyone for the cake ideas yesterday! We will be making a pumpkin chicken tuna cake and a chocolate confetti cake today Wishing you a lovely purrsday everyone! -Bubbles . . . . . #cat #catdad #adventurecat #adventurecatsofinstagram #catonleash #behindthescenes #adventurecats #catdaddy #catbirthday #birthdaytwin #happybirthdaycat #gingercat #gingerkitty #adoptionstory #rescuecatsofinstagram #rescuestory #adoptdontshop #petportrait #meandcat #catphoto #purrsday #catpics #travelcats #travelingcat #catonaleash #raw_cats #raw_pets #pawsup #kittycat #catsofinstagram

Hair. When I talk to non-Black mamas getting ready to foster or adopt Black kiddos, this is often the first topic I’m asked about. It’s an important topic. It should be important to us transracial mamas that we do right by our kids in this way, that we learn what we need to learn, and that we take care of our kids’ hair. I will emphasize we have to go beyond hair and skin care in preparing to parent Black kids. We have to do right by them in every way. So don’t stop at hair care. I’m a big proponent of learning from Black people on Black hair care. It bothers me when I see white adoptive mamas making you tube tutorials for other white adoptive mamas on this subject. We’re not the experts. Black people are. Go to the source. The you tubes are full of Black people doing hair tutorials and they’re super helpful! “Search it up” as my kid’s say. Two IG accounts I learn from are @reagansanai and @tutus_tennis_shoes so check those out! And of course I have to give a shout out to my Aunt Anita who stood in my kitchen for hours teaching me how to care for my girls’ hair and is always texting me product recommendations, etc. Go to the Black people in your life and ask for help! Share below any *Black* resources you’ve found helpful on hair care! #transracialfamily #blackgirlmagic #transracialadoption #melanatedmarch #adoptionstory

“I remember not really even experiencing holidays or birthdays,” recalls Zach, who spent five long years moving between his biological family and foster care with no permanent place to call home. Thankfully, Zach’s journey changed when he was adopted at age 11 with help from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, his Wendy’s Wonderful Kids adoption recruiter, Carol, and the Foundation’s caring community of supporters. Now 20, Zach has experienced so many special firsts with his forever family by his side. Share Zach’s story to help raise awareness for foster care adoption. #Adoption #FosterCare #FosterCareAdoption #LoveMakesAFamily #AdoptionStory #AdoptionJourney #AdoptionAdvocate

Hi I’m Smokey and I have some happy news 💝 On my fourth year anniversary living at the shelter, a big surprise happened - I WAS ADOPTED!! I finally get a loving family and a home to call my own - something that every cat at C.A.R.E.S. Cat Shelter waits for. It’s been a long wait for me. Starting back in 2017, when I was found abandoned in a Langley neighbourhood. I was luckily brought to C.A.R.E.S. Cat Shelter, where I had a new, safe and warm place to call home, food, clean water - and lots and lots of love and attention. I equally returned the love and affection to the volunteers, as well. They always said I was a “good boy.” I know the volunteers will miss me! Even at 13 years old, I’m still going strong and always impressed them with my personality and determination. I loved to escape and find them. I loved when they turned on the tap for me to drink. I also liked to keep them on their toes (literally,) and climb up high out of reach. But, I’m off to my furever home now, so it’s time to say goodbye to C.A.R.E.S. Even though I’ll be missed, I know everyone is really happy for me. This is what everyone worked so hard and supported me for these past 4 years - to give me a second chance and find me a loving family and home. And for that, I am forever thankful ❤️ Your pal, Smokey #justadopted #adoptdontshop #adoptionstory #cat #catshelter #langleybc #cats #cattales www.carescatshelter.com 📧 info@carescatshelter.com ☎️ (604)532-5632 ~ posted by Nat

ℹ Where am I feeling that? #TraumaInformedThursday Part of exploring our trauma is knowing where it resides or shows up in our bodies. Often when we are activated we will have bodily sensations such as tightness, tension, aches, sweat, a feeling of unease, or even nausea. Bringing awareness to WHERE and HOW we feel things can help us in knowing when we are activated, noticing patterns in our bodies & where stuck emotional energy resides. Typical areas might be: head, eyes, neck, shoulders, throat, chest and gut. • • • • • #adoptionawareness #cPTSD #adoptee #adopteesforchange #adoptiontrauma #trauma #traumahealing #traumasurvivor #traumarecovery #relinquishmenttrauma #adopteevoice #maternalseparation #adoption #adoptionsupport #adoptionhealing #adoptiontraumanetwork #adopteeinfluencer #adoptionstory #adoptiontruth #motherwound #outofthefog #traumainformed #traumasensitive #nervoussystem #adoptiongrief

It's a cloud! It's a cotton puff! Nope, it's Komoo! . Komoo was rescued from the streets of Paju, Korea when she was a young pup and brought to a local shelter. She stayed at the shelter for 4 years before she flew to Seattle, WA after finding her forever home. Although she was a beauty, no one in Korea wanted to adopt a big, fully grown adult dog . While living in a humble, over run and under funded shelter, Komoo was sometimes described as "troublesome" because she had so much energy she would play rough with other dogs and would sometimes escalate into issues.  . However, when a shelter has over 200 dogs and is run on the power of volunteers, dogs often need to stay in their kennels and have little time for play or human interaction. Dogs often have excess pent up energy and little outlet for them . Often times, people overlook shelter dogs because they believe they have been "damaged" and come with behavior issues. Behaviors can sometimes be deeply rooted, but not always. Komoo proves that dogs like her simply needed some support when she was feeling under stimulated. Many times, behaviors can be managed under the right environment. It's why seeing rescue dogs blossom is so rewarding. "Second hand" dogs make first class pets. . . . . . . . . . #FreeKoreanDogs #adoptdontshop #rescuedog #rescuedogs #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedogsofig #rescueismyfavoritebreed #adoptionsaveslives #koreanrescuedog #happytails #adopteddog #foreverfamily #foreverhome #fureverhome #foreverfamily #happytails #adoptionstory #adoptionjourney #dogadoption #adopteddog #shelterdog #shelterdogsofinstagram #shelterdogs #ifoundmyforeverhome #dogrescue #samoyed #Sammy #seattle #Seattledogs #dogsofseattle

The month or so after was a whirlwind of decisions and discussions and options and research. We considered another retrieval, switching clinics, embryo adoption, sperm donors...everything and anything was possible. Our final decision was to move forward with the next transfer, and transfer 2 of our precious little babies. I went into the procedure very cautiously, but feeling some hope since we were transferring 2!! That had to help our odds. I showed up to our appointment like a seasoned veteran. They brought me into the procedure room and the normal hustle and bustle commenced. Then, the door opened and the embryologist popped her head in. “Hey, I just wanted to let you know that one of your embryos didn’t make it through the thaw. Would you like us to thaw your last one?” WAIT WHAT?! The same sensations that I felt when our IUI went wrong, washed over me. “Umm, ok?!” was my shocked response. “It’ll only be 15 minutes or so,” she replied and closed the door behind her. I laid on that bed in shock. I texted Brian. WTF!! Was this real life?! We had been warned that this was possible, but were told 10% chance! Not 25%! Those 15 minutes felt like 2 minutes. The next thing I knew, Dr. Dodds and the assistants came into the room and started prepping. I had NO IDEA what we were about to be told...

This time last year, we submitted our docs to DSWD. Today, with David now with us, we finalised everything and submitted to our lawyer for filing to court! We’ve lost so much in the past year - jobs, clients, social connections, a tiny bit of our freedom, but I look back to things like this and it gives me hope. It makes me think, what will next year bring? And I’m grateful. Thank you Lord because like you promised, you’re seeing this whole process to its completion and we will continue to obey. 🖤 #adoption #adoptionjourney #adoptionstory #davidclasara #teamc #family #dswd #unschoolingmom

Friends. The. Hoops. The things we are having to jump through to have our home "kid safe." This is our zoning application to see if we are able to even build our fence. To keep our family safe. It's absolutely exhausting. It feels so unfair that we have sooooo many things we have to do when so many other people bring home babies with whatever conditions they have at the time. Don't get me wrong. I know a fence will be safer for us. I know the kids can only benefit. But we have to pay $6,000 for a fence to protect from a pool that isn't ours! We know God has called us to foster kids and to be a loving home and we will stick to that. We will preserve in the times of trials. But, friends. Today, I am feeling very defeated. It's not all rainbows and butterflies. Today most definitely feels like a slug. Inching along ever so slowly. #fostercarejourney #fostertoadopt #preparingtofoster #ittakesavillage #jumpingthroughhoops #redtape #utterlyexhausted #adoptionstory

We’ve been keeping a little secret! Over the past year we have started the process to adopt! This has always been something that we have wanted to do— we’ve talked and prayed about it since we were dating. It can be a long process filled with much waiting so we were a little reluctant to share, however, we are at a spot where we could really use your help. If you’d like to help us we’d ask that you first and foremost pray. For a future birth mom- the grief and loss that she will face, the baby, and for us. Secondly, if you’d like- we’d ask for you to considering giving financially to help us bring a sweet little baby home. (And it’s tax season- so this felt like an important time to share 🤪). Our adoption agency, Christian Family Care, is a qualifying 501(c)(3) organization- this means that donations towards our adoption can be used on your Arizona tax return as a dollar-for-dollar credit through the Arizona Foster Tax Credit. While filing your taxes for 2020 if you owe anything to the state you can donate through our adopt fund up to $1000 filing jointly and $500 for single filers (then utilize form 352 on your taxes) and this essentially replaces what you would be paying the state! You get to decide where your money goes at no additional cost to you. Even better, if you withheld (through your employer) an amount equal to or greater than your state tax liability, the adoption tax credit will increase your state tax refund. You can even stack this credit on top of other state tax credits like the charitable organization and school donations. (Check with your tax professional first to make sure that all of this will work for you since everybody’s situation is different.) We are sooo excited to finally be sharing this with all of you. We can’t wait to see Maisy be a big sister- she tells us everyday that we are going to get a baby named Strawberry 😂 If you have any questions about the tax credits please let me know. And also if you do give at any time please let us know, all of the donations are anonymous and we’d like to make something special for the baby that includes EVERYBODY who has helped us! Love you all! EEK! Link in bio!
