I have been through 8 really hard to deal with Mother’s Days. I want this year to be different. I do not want to dwell on having any relationship with my biological mother, my miscarriage, or years of infertility. This Mother’s Day I want to celebrate the hope for the future. Soon my husband and I are going to do our foster care orientation. I am super excited about journey we are beginning. This Mother’s Day I want to glean hope from people who have become mothers through adoption. These 5 adoption stories warmed my heart and have me excited about my future. I may not be a mom right now, but I can start praying for the children who may be in my home soon.
5 Adoption Stories for Mother’s Day
Johnathon’s Adoption Story– Robyn from The Neighborhood Moms was able to foster adopt Johnathon at just 17 months old after coming to her at just 3.5 months old. I love reading about stories where people get to adopt babies from foster care, though my heart breaks at the thought of a child losing such an important part of their lives, I am thankful for people who are willing to step up and adopt these little ones.
King’s Zoo and Funny Farm– This is a blog that is about a wonderful family that has adopted several children. Each adoption story is beautiful and you can tell the family loves God.
Asher’s Adoption Story– Liza from Addicted to Saving is from my hometown and has one of the best couponing blogs out there. She is a super sweet person too! Her family adopted Asher from Ethiopia. I hope to someday to do an international adoption.
Tricia and Dustin’s Decision to Foster– This sweet family adopts a little boy from foster care. Their first placement went to a kinship adoption but the second call they took led to their forever family. What I like best about this story is that the placement was to be temporary. Isn’t it amazing when God has better plans?!
Kendra and Brad’s Adoption Adventure– Kendra and Brad just started their adoption journey. I look forward to reading their journey. I love the picture they made to announce their decision to adopt. The whole process can be very exciting and I am praying they find their baby!
