National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Month, and in honor of that, I thought I would offer a hand to anyone looking for adoption resources. I’ve tried hard over the past couple of years to make my blog a great resource of honest adoption-related information, but if there’s something you’re concerned about or have questions about {adoption-related of course} that I haven’t covered, please feel free to email me or leave a comment.

When I started the adoption process three years ago, I was absolutely and completely overwhelmed. I felt completely lost and totally alone. None of my friends or family had any experience with adoption, so not only was I alone in researching and learning all of the information out there, it also took some time for our family and friends to warm up to the idea. Since then, everyone {us included} as grown and learned so much, and now I’m trying my hardest to educate people on the adoption process. I wish adoption wasn’t so taboo or uncomfortable to discuss with others, but hopefully I’m helping to normalize the process and educate others about adoption being just another great way to grow a family. I really feel like we’ve opened the door in our family, church, and community regarding adoption discussion, and maybe through my blog I’ve opened a door in the wider world.

Ultimately, I want to invite all of my readers {or those of you landing here for the first time} to come to me with any adoption-related questions you might have. I felt alone in the process, but you don’t have to. I would love to help other prospective adoptive parents navigate these waters a little less blindly. I met some amazing ladies online who helped me in some incredible ways. Without them, I don’t know how I would have survived those first few months of research, searching, and educating myself. It’s now my hope that I could be that source of support for someone else.

If you have any adoption related questions, please feel free to ask! I have helped other prospective adoptive parents find the right agency for them, decide between private adoption and foster-to-adopt, located possible adoption grants for others, etc. If you’re just interested in learning more about adoption but have no clue how it works or you have fears and worries that you would like to dispel, let me know. You don’t have to dive into this alone.

I also love hearing adoption stories from others. It encourages me during my own wait, and I always love meeting new adoptive or foster parents.

Happy National Adoption Month. You can reach me at lovemakesafamily@yahoo.com

Blessings,
