One of the ways we love learning about and celebrating our adopted and foster kiddos heritages is with books. This christmas Santa is loading up sweet baby H's library with these titles and several more 😍
books with main characters that look like him, books about the history of his heritage, books about fostercare, and books about loving all kinds of people.

🚨🚨🚨ADOPTION UPDATE🚨🚨🚨 So Kerm and I decided that while we are waiting for our “forever daughter” that we will open our home up for foster care to little girls in the mean time.

Well, our first foster daughter arrived Monday night. She’s four years old and the boys absolutely adore her.
She’s a little sassy and has officially been dubbed “Miss Thing”. Kruze has been calling her “sister” since she arrived and she’s been totally ignoring him since Monday night. 😩😂 Well tonight, she caved and has been calling him “brother” for the last hour! 🥰 “Hey brother, lets play”.... “C’mon brother, lets do our homework”. We’ve enrolled her in school with our two youngest boys and she’s in Kruze’s class. So I imagine the quality time has been working since she’s been calling him brother now. 🤷🏾‍♀️ Anyway, while we don’t know what’s in store for her, we understand that the goal is reunification & totally support this.
However, for as long as she is under our roof, she will be our daughter. We will stand in the gap for her and love on her for as long as time allows us. She will be afforded the same opportunities as our children for as long as is warranted and she will FEEL loved and protected by our family. Miss Thing is a blessing to our family and it is our sincerest hope that she knows she is doing our family some good. ✨💞

So this is where our journey begins. @javanero_j and I are embarking on an amazing adventure together. We want to be dads and it begins today (well a few nights ago but who’s counting). We are nervous, excited, and most of all full of joy! #dadsofinstagram #dads #fosteradoption #adoption #lgbtadoption #familybuilders #nervous #fosterparents #loveislove #gaydads #partners #dadorpapa

I see a mother carrying her small child and am brought back to the time when I could carry mine around, his knees clamped around my body, his feet dangling, our centers of gravity melding into a single point at my hip. When he fit into my lap as snugly as an egg in an eggcup. I carried him around much longer than I should have, until my back hummed in a permanent ache, but I knew that I would never get that time back, when he trusted my engine to fly him through the atmosphere, when the stars were just above our heads. —

“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood” -Tom Robbins

When we stepped into foster care I was terrified that my children’s childhoods were forever ruined. That their scars would ruin their ability to be children. But friends I’m so happy to report that I was so wrong. The healing that has come in the years since adoption has shocked us all. Thank God it’s never too late to have a happy childhood .

Our skin doesn’t match. You don’t have my eyes or mouth, and our faces aren’t the same shape. I don’t know what it’s like to look at you and catch a glimpse of myself as a child. What I see in you is far more beautiful than that. I see into the windows of Heaven and you, my sweet angel, are by my side every single day.
Our skin might not match but our hearts match. We were made to meet. You challenge me in away no one else has. You make me a better person. You sweet girl are worth every single tear I have cried before you...wishing, hoping, hurting and praying for you. Adoption is hard. Adoption is beautiful. Adoption is so so worth it!!!! .

There I am; there she is. That's the picture Samarah drew of me with her in my tummy. Her perception is reality (at least for now), but I don't lie to her and pretend she really was in my stomach. I am 100% honest with my children on all age-appropriate things. I talked about it via link in my profile --> THE HEART IS OKAY⠀

You know what happens after you adopt a child? If you never have, you might not. So I’ll tell you. You completely forget that you did not make, carry that child for 9 months in your belly and then deliver the beautiful soul.⠀

Last night I went to our church Christmas party with the girls without my husband. My parents are babysitting my 2 yr. old niece for the weekend and they were so busy helping with the party that I had all three girls most of the night. And WOW! Some days I think, “Yeah, lets do another one.” Yesterday was NOT one of those days! Lol It was so hard keeping them all together! I was so hot and exhausted after running around all night! Praise to all you mothers of multiples or multiple children! ✨

Hey there! 👋🏼 I’m Ashley. Welcome to this space. Here’s the first edition of #AshleyShares7Things. It’s kind of like #FridayIntroductions But for any day. Although today does happen to be Friday. I thought it’d be a fun way to share about life and nonsense! 😂

1. I was born in Northern Ohio and met @dadlife_101 in Columbus. But we call #LouisvilleKY home. And we hope to for the rest of our lives, God dependent of course.

2. @dadlife_101 and I met in a Subway restaurant where I was working. He was a customer. And he kept coming back. I thought he was trying to sell me a car, but really he was just gaining the confidence to ask me out.

3. We got married 6 days after I graduated from high school. What can I say? When you know...you know. We’ve been married for over 13 years. People ask if it was hard to marry so young. I’d actually say the hardest years were 11 and 12.
4. We have four awesome and challenging and all around great kids. They range in age from 15 down to 6 years old. They joined our family through #FosterAdoption. We just celebrated our fifth #Adoption anniversary. It’s been the hardest and most rewarding experience to be their mom.

5. I love Jesus. My life is different because of that. It’s nothing I’ve done or will do. It’s simply His love and grace that has changed my life. I’m continuing to learn more and more to rest in that truth. To stop striving. To simply be loved and let that flow through me.
6. I have #BipolarDepression. It sucks. Depression is hard. For everyone. For me, for @dadlife_101, for the kids. But I’m learning more and more how to cope and manage and survive. It’s not easy though.

7. I don’t like getting up early. Honestly. I wish the day didn’t start until 8 am. I have to get up early for our oldest to go to school. But most days I go back to bed.

Bonus! I love social media, but it can feel like too much sometimes. So I try to take the weekend off. I feel like the weekly break helps keep it in its place.
