happy adoption month

November is #nationaladoptionmonth

Adoption is beautiful. It truly is. It’s such a picture of God’s redemption. Everyday I am overwhelmed with gratitude that God stepped in and changed the path for our boys. Jax and Josiah bring so much joy to our lives. I am very blessed to be their mom. But, the reality is there is no adoption without loss and pain . . . and grief. You have heard me say this before if you have followed our journey.

Years ago we became a foster family to these boys through hard circumstances. We became their forever family because attempts to reunify them with their biological family failed. I grieve the loss of my boy’s birth parents (all four of them). I am sad they are missing moments. I am sad for my boys that something so precious as a bond between a parent and child had to be broken.These are the bittersweet aspects of adoption. It’s beautiful. It’s heartbreaking. It’s a lot. But I’m so thankful we said yes. I am thankful to have an opportunity to love beyond my own means.
