“In the midst of adversity the babies shall rise and we will be there because we know it is their love that heals us all” -Orphan Advocate ♥️ So beautiful this bouquet 💐 with babies breathe a blow, as the roses 🥀 dangle their heads in sorrow. Although cared for by the same water they somehow showed a resilient skin and outward glow. The rose so beautifully compliments the growth and the carnations give into both emotions of the small ones and the sore. May this demonstrate the sorrow of a birth mother the growth of her young and ones who have endured pain and love for both of them. #lovepeople #humanity #adoptivemom #adoptivedad #adoptionstory #storyofarose #babiesbreathe #carnation #bouquet #orphan #orphanageadvocate #adoption #adoptionawareness #changinglives #give #pray #support #adoptee #childrenofbogota #kidsofcolombia #togetherwecan #fostertoadopt #fostercare #fostertoadoption

“For Our Adopted Child”

You are not the child of our bodies…

But you are the child of our hearts…

You are not the flesh of our flesh…

But you are the joy of our life…

You are the fulfillment of our dreams,

The answer to our prayers,

a gift of god

For which we’re truly thankful…

You are wonderfully our own…

And we love you

As only parents can love their own… **
This is a poem written by an unknown author. **

He is my best friend, my partner, my protector, my love. He is a blessing.
He is kind, genuine, strong, smart, fearless, loving, talented, and funny.
How did I get this blessed to have this man by my side in everything we do? No, it’s not our anniversary. I just felt the need to share how grateful I am.

Two Lionheart ladies out for dinner in Melbourne last week.
Topics covered: the lunacy of having so many children, wanting them to grow up, wanting them to stay small, bitcoin, pelvic floors, shopping, work, birth, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, birth families, birth country visits, blow dries and car parking.
Old friends are da bomb ❤️❤️❤️

Goodness me the examples we could give you of this. Kids preferring everyone but us, kids attaching to strangers easily, kids making very public demonstrations of rejection of us... You experienced this??

Hey mamas

You are enough. You are doing enough.
Wishing you a moment of peace and quiet on this Mother’s Day
Love also to all those who’ve lost their Mum, who struggle to be a mum, whose relationship with their mum is a struggle

And all the love to anyone who mums, mother or not ❤️❤️❤️

$1000 GRANT!! AGING OUT SOON!! LAST CHANCE!!
CAN YOU HOST OR INCREASE HIS GRANT??
AIRPORT OPTIONS are Chicago, Denver, Dulles (June 15-July 29)

U651 VAL’s winter host family said they had a GREAT experience overall with him. VAL connected right away with host family members. Even early during his visit, he took notice if someone appeared sad. He enjoyed tasting new things and challenging himself and others to fun things like eating lemon slices and drinking pickle juice. He out-lasted all the other children playing outside in bitter-cold temperatures. Caught on quickly to cross-country skiing and downhill skiing while still avoiding dangerous situations. Full of life, yet not tiring or overbearing. He loved the host family pets; he cuddled the kitten, handled the pet bird gently and handled the large dog best out of anyone in the family. He enjoyed practicing piano, playing wii, playing in the snow, legos and swimming indoors. He likes to recharge by being alone and gravitates toward a father figure. When asked what they found most rewarding about his host experience, they said “knowing that he is safe.” Can you HOST? Can you donate to make his visit possible? Time is running out!

What I love so much about what we’re building here at WeGo kids is that it’s not just parents who are coming together, it’s teachers, caregivers, grandparents, couples thinking of having kids, aunts, uncles, neighbors of families with kids, anyone who can impact a child in their life.
.
We’re all coming together as a community to raise kids who will change the world.
.
“Whether or not you have children yourself, you are a parent to the next generation. If we can only stop thinking of children as individual property and think of them as the next generation, then we can realize we all have a role to play.” -Charlotte Kasl

Ich kann mich an diesem Anblick einfach nicht satt sehen... (Zurzeit überlege ich, von den 3en einen Fotokalender zu machen 🤔)
Mim und Nala nehmen jede Gelegenheit wahr, mit @goldenbarny zu kuscheln ... und wenn er dann nach dem Schultag sein Nickerchen macht, nutzen sie das immer aus ❤️
Mim wird uns am 18. Mai verlassen. Ich vermisse sie jetzt schon ... aber ich weiß, dass sie bei @miss.franzii in den allerbesten Händen ist (sie muss nur noch die Poppy-Hürde nehmen🙈🍀).
Nala und Simba werden noch ein klein wenig länger bei uns bleiben. Ich glaube, dass das für sie und uns gut ist. 😊

💜Little d success story💜” MY PRAYER IS THAT OUR JOURNEY WOULD ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO SAY YES TO ADOPTION. I attribute our adoption success to Faith, Family/great Friends, and the supportive community around adoption. Thank you! You were there with us in the lowest to the highest to the NORMAL of it all. Take a look into our journey of imperfect parenting but perfect match of love. Love, d @cbstv @cbs8 http://www.cbs8.com/story/38124720/adopt-8-dyanas-success-story

One of the best, most thoughtful and constructive reviews we’ve had - from an adult inter country adoptee in www.intercountryadopteevoices.com

Have you left a review yet on Amazon?! Please do 🙏

We’ve been speaking a little with each other lately about something that we haven’t written about in the book: our kids’ personal hygiene and interest in taking care of themselves.
We’ve noticed some of our kids have a real mental gap here despite our incessant nagging. Pretending to shower, refusing deodorant, putting rubbish in drawers instead of bins

Our working theory is it’s self esteem related and we’ve seen some improvements as our kids’ confidence increases with age.
But we’re curious: what are your experiences and thoughts on this?

I love and respect him so much. This person here is my adoptive dad. He is an amazing loving caring person. People joke about who they don't deserve but I believe that this wonderful person was put in my life 15 years ago for a reason. Words cannot express. I have been taking care of him since I was 17 and he has been taking care of me. We both needed eachother. He never had any kids and I never had stable caring parents. All I knew was bad until I met him. Forever changed my life.. He has taught me so much, he so fuckn smart and awesome. Even if it kills me, i will take care of you for the rest of your life. You will always have me! Youre an amazing parent. I could cry, im so thankful. He so good... a good person.. such a good person😭😭😭😍😭😭😭😭💕💯 Never lose focus on the people who love you.

“The love of God is evident in the miracle of you, little one” — JJ Heller
Was driving home tonight, this song playing, and tears began to well up in my eyes. Thank you, Lord, for the miracle of adoption.

$1200 GRANT
L0309 was chosen in March but her summer host has to back out
Only 48 hours to find a replacement!! In 7th grade, she understands some English and started responding to the interviewer’s questions before they were translated for her. She absolutely likes small children. Sadly, she shared with the orphanage that she used to be locked in a room when she was still at home. This girl DESERVES to participate in hosting this summer and we can only pray that one of you will step forward at this late hour for her!

Can you give 4 weeks of family time to her or increase her grant? Login to read more about L0309 ---> www.p143.org/pre-registration/

Do you feel more pressure to keep memories for your adopted kids? Like you need to make up for the missing parts?

Fair to say we do. I recently set up a Dropbox account as I’ve been through about 3 computers in our 10 years of parenting.
For about 5 years I have had this awful “I need to do something about this” feeling. Then I lost the cord to the main laptop and forgot the password 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Some Macgyver moments followed and over a period of about 4 months I’ve downloaded almost everything. I will not be the adoptive parent who loses their child’s earliest photos!! Now my phone automatically downloads photos.
And I feel smug as. Gold star ⭐️ for me

How do you manage the endless stream of family photos? Secrets please!!

Have you made a purchase from our website this month? For the entire month of April, we will be donating 20% of our profits to THIS precious family to put towards their adoption savings!! 🌿

Thank you so much, Hurt Family, for allowing us to share your story and help even just a little bit in growing your beautiful family! 🌿

If you would like to help the Hurt family in their journey to adopt, in addition to any purchases made through the end of the month, we also have an option to donate a specific amount on our checkout page. 🌿

THANK YOU (Yes, YOU) for not only your purchases, but also sharing our brand, products, and mission with your people. The more you do that, the more families and precious orphans we are able support. 🌿

It makes me giddy to think about each of you and of each dollar we’ve donated so far. We have so many future ideas and hopes and dreams of how this little business can help change lives, and NONE of it would be possible without you. 🌿

All that to say: we love you, and we’re grateful for you, and now I want to challenge you to tag 2 people or organizations you admire who have something to do with adoption or foster care! Tell us what you love about them! ❤️ And if you missed our email introducing this sweet family and their story, we will have them (and their story links) on the blog soon!

... meiner 😍
Mein Herzenshund @golden_barny ist der beste Ersatzpapa, den ich mir erträumen kann 😍 Seitdem sie 4 Wochen alt sind, kann er nun endlich was mit ihnen anfange 😅
Er übernimmt meist die Stimulierung, sie dürfen auf ihm herumtollen, sich mit seinem Fell beschäftigen und bei ihm im Fell eingekuschelt schlafen... und das richtig lange... Ach ja: und sie dürfen seine Kudde von @SABRO in Beschlag nehmen und sogar auf Ferkel schlafen 😍

Where my inter/transracial adoptees at?✌️my brother (pictured) is white and I am white and Mexican, our parents are white and East Indian. Many define inter/transracial adoption as white parents adopting a child of a different race, but what about the other way around? Or multiracial families? Thoughts?🧐

Ummmm... what she 👆🏼 said. Yes! Taking another’s point of view is a difficult brain task that requires the individual to be able to reflect and abstract (put themselves in someone else’s shoes). It’s difficult for many individuals with #fasd to do, but made even more difficult when they are in “survival“ mode. But what constitutes “survival“ you ask? Living in a world where they are constantly misunderstood, getting in trouble and can’t connect the obvious dots to figure out why, missing cause and effect, unable to track time (and then feel lost throughout the day), always “ruining everything” for those around them, trying to inhibit impulses and hear more than every 3rd word being said to them (to just name a few). These are the constant daily struggles of those living with #fetalalcoholsyndrome and other #neurobehavioral conditions. So what, you ask, do you do when they are stuck and unable to consider another point of view? Excellent question. I hope to address one way of working through this type of situation in my next blog post, so stay tuned! And, if you feel you’re in need of 1:1 support, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to chat. 😊 #fasdnorthwest #helpingfamiliesthrive #adoptivemom #adoptivedad #adoptivefamilies
