I have missed blogging so much over the past few months. During that time the passion I have for adoption has just grown like a fire inside of me. So I am going to start blogging again.
I have been thinking about it and I thought well where do I start. It has been so long where do I pick back up at or do I start all over gain? I think the best thing to do is a small back story and then to move forward. That way any new followers don't have to read everything if they don't want to.
In June of 2010 my husband and I started the process of adoption. We went into the process pretty blind to say the least. I can't say if adoption groups were a popular and as easy to find then as now or now, because I never thought to look for them at the time. The support groups now are a truly amazing thing, if you can find honest people in them, and most groups with adoptive families in them are. The process of adoption is hard and cruel. It's over whelming, lonely and hard to navigate at times. But it can also be beautiful and amazing as well, most of the time that isn't until the end and well after placement honestly.
In January of 2012 we were blessed with the birth and placement of our amazing son. We have been equally blessed with a good relationship with our son's birth mother.
Ever since we finalized our son's adoption I have had a passion to want to help support other waiting families. I felt so alone and lost during our wait. We felt like we didn't get as much support as we thought we would get from agency we used at the time. Even now post placement it is so nice to have people to share with who understand like on one else can.
I want this to be a place of sharing and support for others. I am not saying everything I feel is right and perfect. That the advise I have is always correct. I can only talk from our experience and from my heart!
I hope that you find some help and support and understand in the things I have to say and experiences I share.
