I am so happy you have found my blog! I have included information about the adoption process, fostering, and just being a new parent in general that I hope you will find useful. And more posts will be added every week!
I hope to share and connect with other adoptive families, foster parents, and those hoping to adopt as we all go through this crazy journey together. There is so much involved in the process, and it’s nice to have others to lean on. And the journey doesn’t stop once your little one comes home…it’s going to last a lifetime.
My husband and I just adopted our daughter last fall. It has been an amazing experience and I want to share all of our ups and downs so that it may help someone else. As we were going through the process, I searched and looked for people who had been through these same experiences. I loved reading their stories, advice, and suggestions and everyone had something different to offer. That’s why I decided to start this blog. To share tips and suggestions that I figured out along our path through foster care, infertility, and eventually adoption, and even more as I move into a new phase of being a mom. I couldn’t do any of this without the help of my family and friends, who are part of my village.
A little more about me…I am a former special education teacher with a Masters in Education, but now am so thankful to be at home everyday with our little one. My husband and I have been married for almost 8 years. He has always been so supportive of every adventure I want to take on and is always by my side 100%. Parenting with him is awesome and we just make a great team. Thankfully, he likes to cook, because I definitely hate being in the kitchen. I’d much rather put something from Trader Joe’s in the oven and spend my time binge watching shows on Netflix.
