Just place the words "adopted, Adoptive Parenting, transracial adoption, waiting children, adoptee and/or foster adoption" into any search engine and you will find many such pages. However you found a unique site created by an adoptee, who recently found her birth family AND an adoptive mother who is going through the journey of raising three foster adoptive children and two biological children. It was through foster adoption, we became a multicolored family. Transracial adoption wasn't something I planned on, it was something I was blessed with.
Are you hoping to adopt, but finding the process daunting? Is dealing with social workers and overseas agencies overwhelming you? In an effort to be better informed and the best parent I can be I spent the past 3 years looking at online resources. I want education and insight from people who have been there. I found some great resources, but they weren’t easy to find.
I always knew I wanted to adopt. Infant adoption brought me into a two parent family. Now as an adult I have a multitude of half siblings, adoptive siblings and siblings by marriage. Join me on the journey of raising five children and sheltering foster children for short periods of time.
I pray that this site will allow you to save your energy for the enormous stacks of paperwork and the emotional ups and downs found in the world of adoption. And that it will give you hope that your adoptive family can be formed and flourish in love.
Take time to explore all the aspects of this site:
