Your Story

Adoption steps
Dear Kids,
I think I may have heard your story today. We’re still a far cry from finding out if you’re really ment to be with us, but I think I heard your story today. My heart broke of the tragedy that brought you into foster care and may, one day in the not-too-distant future, bring you to your forever-home. Maybe, just maybe, that home is with us.
Because I respect you, even if you end up being a valued part of someone else’s family, I won’t share your story here. If you become part of our family, who you share your story with is up to you. How you want to handle that is up to you. No matter what, we will always be here for you when the past gets too heavy to bare alone. You’ve already amazed me with your strength and coming as far as you have. I hope that someday you’ll call us home, but if not, I know your forever home is out there getting ready for you.
That said, we’re a few steps closer to you than we were last time I updated this! Your dad and I got our certificates for passing our 27 hour training class! We’ve scheduled the CPR/First aid/training/Bloodborn pathogen training in early December. We’re working with a contractor to get the house and room(s) ready for you. Just when we thought you were going to have bunk beds and share a room, our contractor may have found a solution that lets everyone have their own room, plus having extra space for a guest! We’ll see how things go on that front, but we’re getting ready!
It’s exciting and exhausting at the same time. I just can’t wait to be done with these piles and piles of paperwork and be ready to meet you!
After all, we’re family; you just don’t know it yet.
Loves of love,
Your Mom


About justdontknowityet

Adopted during my first year of life into a family that had a already adopted a boy. My bio mother was 15 and swore she was raped. With almost no pre-natal care, I survived and joined my forever-family. Blood may be thicker than water - but love is stronger than both. Now, my husband and I are in the process of building our own family through adoption. Our process is complicated somewhat by his service as a Navy Submariner. Sometimes the best things come from the most surprising and challenging situations. The goal of his blog is to honestly express the challenges, pit falls, heart breaks and joys of this process in letters to our future family. Every child is wanted by someone.
