Adoption is part of my family’s story. I get a lot of questions about adopting. Some of the questions are about the practicals, like how to, and some are the emotional or parenting side of the equation.
I decided to start compiling my posts that specifically deal with adoption in one place to share our story, help others navigate their own adoption journeys, or educate people who want to understand the adoption process.
