Why yes, I would love to move to this dream cottage, thank you very much! Aaaaallllll the cottage photos coming your way!
We had our foster care orientation today. We had originally gone through a different agency when hoping to adopt through the foster care system, but the constant runaround finally made us realize we may not be moving in the direction we were supposed to be.. which didn’t make sense. We knew we were supposed to adopt, and our heart is broken for the foster care system.. so what were we supposed to do? Thankful to the LORD for friends who love us, and Him. Their counsel in that season was exactly what He used to bring us to where we are. We are now at peace, while in the process of domestic infant adoption through a private agency.. which is crazy, I always planned to adopt older children through foster care. #butgod while simultaneously training to be foster parents through another private agency. We thought things may not work out but since starting on this path, little setbacks like finances or not having a proper sized home or lack of support, have all been pushed away. We spent so long banging our heads against walls with our original plans, we had no idea that His were different. #hiswaysarenotourways So thankful for my husband and the love he has for the LORD and the desire He has for justice and the voice he uses for the voiceless. 🖤 #solideogloria #joyfulmamas

All dressed up for church! #mylittlefamily #adoptionislove #agc
Lately I’ve been taking the focus off of social media and refocusing on preserving the memories that have already been made. I feel it’s so important to have something to pass down to our children and grandchildren that is real. I’ve been creating photo books with written letters expressing my love and adoration for them and all their sweet personality traits. I urge you to do the same! Don’t wait! 💖 And hi baby Jacq! 😭 Give me those cheeks! #hideplayseek
When discussing family preservation we are often met with resistance. This week we will be looking more closely at these frequently asked questions along with some helpful responses, and how to be proactive. As always, your feedback is appreciated. We learn together. Collectively, our lived experience forms our passion for preserving and protecting the sacred bonds of family. . . . #familypreservation #adoption #family #familiesbelongtogether #endfamilyseparation #parenting #adoptionislove #brokenfamily #support #biology #pregnant #fp365

We had a wonderful family night out last night! Our church hosted a 60’s diner themed dinner and dance. It was geared towards families with a fantastic kid-friendly DJ. The kids were on the dance floor almost the whole night! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Keep your head up momma, you got this!
We are still waiting for you. We are hopeful, optimistic, and committed to finding you. We’ve endured set back after set back, but now more then ever you are longed for, hoped for, and chosen from the start. We covet each and everyone’s prayers as we journey through adoption once more to finding Baby A.

I finished our “transition picture book” for our future foster/adoption kiddos. This picture book is for the kids to look at and help them see who we are, where they will live, our pets, school, daycare, etc. I think I’ve looked at it over a dozen times......the boys sat in the chair last night and looked at it together. It was the sweetest thing to watch them flip through it and show excitement to be sharing who we are with kids that would be enriching our lives in the future. . Tomorrow we go for a meeting and while I can’t give lots of details yet....please keep us in your thoughts and send good juju vibes our way for what is meant to be will be. . I am a ball of emotions and of course Joe is cool, calm, and collected. I swear we were brought together to balance each other out....Lord knows I am super passionate and lead with my heart 98% of the time. Joe is a logical thinker and leads with his head first. So we are able to make good decisions for our family based on each of our thoughts. And of course our boys will have a big say in what happens moving forward as well. 💕 . Here’s to the future...... . #ThingsAreStartingToGetReal #fosteradoption #fostercare #adoption #growingfamily #adoptivemom #momof2boys #believe #loveislove #adoptionislove

Six years ago we flew out to Ohio to adopt a baby girl. After months of correspondence and pictures we finally got to meet this smiling, sweet girl. We became even more attached to Cheyanne as we spent a few days with her and her amazing mother, Simone. The night before the court date Simone placed Cheyanne in our arms. Michael and I spent the evening and the next day loving this little girl. The next morning, against our desires, and the desires of Cheyanne's mother, the court gave custody to a family member instead. We were heartbroken! Simone, was heartbroken! I remember crying so hard that the flight attendant gave us our flights home for free. Nice! Giving Cheyanne back was the hardest thing we have ever had to do. I remember every detail of that night with Cheyanne. What she ate, what she did, how she smelled and how she slept. Sometimes adoption is almost too much to bear, but it was during this time that I saw. I saw how deeply and how instantly I love my children whom I never gave birth to. I saw a small glimpse of what it must be like to place your own baby for adoption. I think about Cheyanne often and I always will. Just like I think of my childrens' birthmothers, and I always will. #share #adopted #adoptee #adoption #openadoption #adoptionislove #adoptionjourney #love #life #birthmomstrong #hopingtoadopt #hopetoadopt #waitingfamily #adoptivefamily #adoptiveparent #adoptivemom #adoptivedad #lovewhatmatters #lovemakesafamily #adopt #pregnancychoices #mixedfamily #transracialfamily #hope
Good morning ! Today I celebrate another year of life. There are no words to thank my Lord almighty for his goodness, unconditional love and faithfulness to me. I thank him for the loving husband He gave me and for the opportunity to allow me to be a mom of three precious boys and God willing, another little one ... I thank my God for keeping me healthy and daily reminding me how weak and fragile I am so I can depend fully on His Word, strength, wisdom and promises. Thank you Lord for keeping close to your heart and truth. . . . #adoption #adopt #motherhood #marriage #families #pregnant #pregnancy #adoptiveparents #adoptivefamilies #hopefuladoptiveparents #adoptivemomma #adoptionrocks #adoptionjourney #adoptionannouncement #adoptionstory #adoptionislove #adoptions #adoptionsaveslives #share4adoption #teenpregnancy #teenmom #teenproblems #teengirls #pregnantteen #hopingtoadopt #momtobe #teenmomtobe #youngpregnant #bellybump #babybump
We had two little sisters live with us for seven months. They moved back with family over the summer but I think of them every day. One of the girls was in the kindergarten garden club and had planted some marigolds. She never got to see them bloom but every day I look at them, my heart is reminded of my love for these two precious girls. Last night I clipped some of the flowers from her plant for the center of the table at my birthday dinner. . . . #adoptionjourney #adoptionislove #bloggermom #chictribe #fostercare #fosterparents #fosterlove #graceandgrit #holdthemoments #inbeautyandchaos #lovemakesafamily #mumblogger #mybeautifulmess #oureverydaymoments #parentcoach #parentingblogger #thecalltolove #thisisfostercare #thisismotherhood #unitedmotherhood
How many of you TRAVEL for the holidays? I’m thinking about Hawaii for Christmas but have no idea what the weather will be like. Anyone from HAWAII that can share some weather tips? Also, how cute are these two? I can’t! 😍
Meet Bogart! G'day to you. When I am feeling like a proper gentleman, you may refer to me as Bogart...but when my bow tie is off I am just good ol' Boogs. I don't like to live in the past, but my past was ruff for sure. These days, I just want to give all my attention to my hoomans and want all my hoomans attention for myself. I have been through doggie school and have learned to be a goodest boy. Now I just need a patient, stable, family to sweep me off my feet. Think you got what it takes? Let's go on a date and see if we are a match. Link in bio. #sunday #dallas #adoption #adoptdontshop #adopt #adoptionislove #dog #love #dogsofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog
Dear Hopeful Adoptive Parent: It’s ok to be still. It’s ok to be quiet and to make sure you are taking care of yourself. The brokenness of infertility can leave couples leaping towards Adoption. But, it is important to PAUSE and for couples to work through the pain infertility brings—why? Because when it comes time that you are CHOSEN by an Expectant Mother or Birth Mother, they will NEED you to be emotionally HEALTHY so that you can love her WELL — so that you will understand that the purpose of Adoption isn’t “getting a baby,” but loving the Expectant Mother/Birth Mother WELL — and that the real purpose is two families becoming ONE! • So if you are “in the wait” take time to care of yourself so you will be ready to care for HER!!!! #abidingloveadoptions #birthmom #birthmother #birthmamalove #birthmomstrong #abidinglove #birthmamasupport #adopt #adoption #placed #adoptionagency #adoptionislove #domesticadoption #neveraloneneverforgottenalwaysloved #anniefdowns #adoptivemom #adoptivefamily #adoptivedad #adoptiveparents #adoptionprofessionals #expectantmother #expectantmom #expectantparents #openadoption #adoptionstory #adoptioneducation #openadoptionrocks #adoptionrocks #hopefuladoptiveparents

When we first started our adoption journey, I worried about bonding. I believed that I would love this child exactly the same as Noah, Eli and Emry Jane, but what if he or she didn’t feel the same about me?! What if I had to fight so much harder for his or her love? I believe that induced lactation helped us immensely. It gave us a closeness and allowed me to provide for his survival, his nourishment. I was his comforter, his provider from the very beginning. To this point, we’ve never struggled with bonding. We are extremely close— to the point where he ONLY wants Mama sometimes (even Daddy won’t do) and has to sleep with his head on my chest some (or most 🤷🏻‍♀️) nights and I am so grateful for this. Nathan’s such a blessing to our family. #christiansonadoption #attachmentparenting #attachment #bonding #adoption #openadoption #adoptionjourney #adoptalovestory #adoptionislove #lovemakesafamily #inducedlactation
Fear and the unknowns have a way of grabbing ahold of us if we let them. Comparison is the thief of Joy. Negative thoughts have a way of taking over. We all struggle with something. But in 2 Tim 1:7 scripture says: “For I have not given you a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind.” Let’s go with that. Today, let’s not put even one pinky down that rabbit hole... •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #bethegood #shinealight #CustomMadeKid #CustomMadeKidFoundation #faith #family #faithhopelove #bethechange #familyfirst #orphancare #adoption #adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionlove #lovemakesafamily #fostering #fostercare #domesticadoption #internationaladoption #dreamsdocometrue #icouldhavemissedthis #adoptionrocks #adoptionislove #adoptionstories #adoptionjourney #adoptionchangeslives #james127 #mightymamasbyadoption #instagood

I realized I never posted pics from G’s birthday party back in August. He started asking me about his party at the end of May and he was so excited even back then! He kept telling me, “Mama! I want a Dino party wif all my fwends. And they are gonna sing Happy Birfday Gwady. And I’m gonna wove it!” He helped pick out the activities, the decorations and insisted on what kind of cupcakes he wanted. This is the first year he has been genuinely excited about his birthday and really understands that he is a year older. Not to mention wanting to invite his buddies over. That’s a big step for G. Needless to say we all had a blast and G was grinning ear to ear the whole time. I love my sweet bug so much and being able to bring that much joy into his little heart is just about the best thing ever! . . . . . . #fouryearsold #happybirthday #foreverfamily #adoption #adoptionrocks #adoptionjourney #openadoption #adoptionislove #lovemakesafamily #lovemylittles #autism #familygoals #letthembelittle #mytinymoments #our_everyday_moment #livethelittlethings #letthekids #candidchildhood #ourcandidlife #childhoodunpluged #magicofchildhood
My world 🌍 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• In November 2015 we completed our journey to become adopters. It was a tough experience but one we welcomed. Our whole existence was investigated and discussed. Any factor that could of had an impact on our lives had to be unpicked and when we read our PAR report it was like reading a counselling manual of our life. Our friends and family were interviewed, my ex boyfriend was interviewed. By the time we got to the approval panel we were emotionally exhausted. But we got through and then we started the search. Online and in magazines. Scrolling through, choosing between children who all needed a home. Then we saw them. But it wasn’t to be at first. Fast forward 3 months and we saw them again. Then we met with their foster carer. I remember her handing me a painting of their hand prints and I cried. This was the closest I’d got to them so far. Every stage we had to wait for people to decide if we were suitable to move forward. If the process had broken down at any point we would have been absolutely gutted. We had a lot more meetings before the matching panel. When the matching panel came I was sick a lot. I have never been more nervous in the whole of my life. But we got through. Then we were kicked out of our rented house that the landlord had promised we could stay at for the next 5 years. We had to find a house in 2 weeks and set it up ready for the children which we’d already done in the other house. I think the only way I kept it together was knowing I was doing this for them. Then suddenly we were at the door and we saw a little face at the window, his hand waving and I knew it had all been worth it. Our journey to being parents. What was yours?!?!
After a long day cleaning up around the house and doing some photography work, what better way to celebrate getting things done than a big ol' plate of nachos? #adoptionrocks #hopingtoadopt #adoption #futureparents #family #adoptionjourney #adoptionislove #adoptionstory #share4adoption #hopingtoadopt60days #nachos #dinner #dinnertime #wasatch #meal #food #mexicanfood #texmex #relationshipgoals

My parents had always been very open with me about my adoption. Growing up, I didn’t ask them a lot of questions about it though despite all the questions I had in my head. I think I didn’t ask partly because I knew they didn’t have all the answers and partly because I didn’t want to know the answers. I created this image of my birth mother in my head: a kind, caring person who had some misfortunes to no fault of her own; but, I had no idea if this was true. What if she wasn’t kind? What if she didn’t want me? The fear of heartbreaking rejection was enough to keep me quiet. Before I left for college, my parents gave me information about myself and my birth parents: my birth name, their names, their birthdays, and some history on their relationship. This information confirmed to me that my birth mother was in fact, a kind, caring person who had some misfortunes to no fault of her own and prompted me to begin asking new questions without fear. This photo from my high school graduation was the closest in time I could find of this pivotal moment in my life as I transitioned from my teenage years into adulthood. ❤️❤️❤️ Follow me along as I share, "My Adoption Story."
1 year ago today Dan went to court to finalize his adoption of Lucas. 1 year ago today we would officially never lose our boy. I can not imagine my life or our family without him in it. He is sweet, has a huge imagination, a huge heart& he definitely keeps us in our toes. He was just telling me Sunday how lucky he is to have 4 parents that love him & 2 that loved him enough to let mommy & daddy & Chole (what he calls me) & Ronnie have him. He has no idea how much he has changed all of our lives for the better. 💜 Happy Gotcha Day 💜 #blendedfamily #bonusson #gotchaday #loveourlife #adoption #bonusmama #adoptionrocks #adoptionislove #blendedfamilystrong
