Lord, today I bring before you the birth mothers who, for many different reasons, are not able to raise the child or children they gave birth to. I thank You so much, Lord, for Your protection over them during their pregnancy, for their courageous decision to choose life for their children. I thank You for their strength and love for their children, the sacrifice they made to give their children a life that they were not prepared or capable of providing. I pray that You will strengthen them, grant them Your peace. I pray that the families who adopted their children will always view these birth mothers with love and grace, that they will always remember to include them in their prayers, and that they will raise their new children to respect and honor their birth family. I ask that You protect them and show them Your love. 💕

These are dark times for women’s healthcare. Talk about adoption, not the other A word.

Getting pictures ready for graduation stuff when I ran across this one. Most of the people I've seen lately have hated pregnancy. Especially the younger mothers. But I can honestly say that those where moments I cherished. One because I know many women married and unmarried who would give ANYTHING to have the opportunity to carry a child. Some by the grace of God will get to others will sadly not get the opportunity. My sons mother will never know that feeling. That's something that I got to experience that she didn't. It breaks my heart knowing that she didn't get to spend those 9 amazing months with him. But I am so thankful that I did. I never wanted to go into labor because I knew when I did the hardest part of my journey would begin. Yes I messed up and made some decisions that weren't very Christ like. But my testimony is proof that God can turn Pain in to victory. And ugliness into something unimaginably beautiful. Despite the fact that my son's mom will never get to experience pregnancy she will get to experience being a mother. And I can say NOTHING can top that. I didn't have nearly enough time with him so God gave me a piece of him that will forever live in my heart. I was asked recently if I thought all teen mothers should chose adoption. My answer was " I believe all Teen mothers, parents of any age, and people should follow God's plan and live according to his laws if you do stumble (as I did) and end up at a cross road having to make a tough decision, turn to God admit that yes you did mess up. Repent ask for forgiveness. Thank him for the fact that you are forgiven and then ask him to guide you to the best decision. Ask him what he wants you to do next, ask him to help you fix this and what ever he says do. Do it. No questions, no arguments, no doubt just trust him. It may seem impossibly hard. But God sees the bigger picture you're just too close to see it all. I did that and God led me to adoption he doesn't tell everyone to do the same thing but what ever he asks of you I advise you to do it. Because not following his will is what got you here in the first place. " I have rough days. I'm not there yet but I'm past the start. God is so amazing. ❤️

An adoptive Mother’s loving thoughts

November is adoption month. This came to me a few nights ago when I was thinking about the last year and thought I would share. This is way out of my comfort zone so here goes...
Adoption is a picture of the gospel.
It is a picture of brokenness. Broken from an unplanned pregnancy. Broken from a deep desire to be parents but grin and bare it when people ask if you want kids.
It is a picture of faith. Faith that God knows your perfect child and birth family. Faith on the hardest days that He is you carrying you.
It is a picture of hope. Hope for a future child and hope that you are making the right decision to place a child. Hope that we can rest only in God.
It is a picture of community. We would be absolutely lost without our huge tribe and their love for us. Our sweet baby is loved by so many that have prayed for him before he was conceived. I can’t wrap my head around the fact that God knows just the people to put in your life that will guide you through each step.
It is a picture of love. I can not even begin to imagine the love that birth mothers have when they place our sweet children into our arms.
Most importantly it is a picture of a fathers love. I can’t imagine the love God must feel when he looks at us all and when we throw our hands open to reach to Him. The small glimpse of that joy each day when we hear Mama or DaDa and that sweet smile comes across His face and those sweet arms reach towards us fills my heart in ways that are indescribable. I can only imagine the embrace that we will receive when we get to heaven. I hope I am running full force into His arms so excited to see Him like our baby does when he sees us.

Copied & pasted

My middle son, who is 21 now, was adopted. I tell you this not because it matters, but because I have learned some important things in the last 21 years:

You’ll forget he’s adopted.

This may sound unbelievable, but at some point not too long after you adopt, you will actually forget that your child is adopted. This is true even if he or she does not physically resemble you. You will cease thinking about your child’s appearance and how that child came into your life and only see him or her. It’s like a superpower that parents have. I have a friend who has identical twin daughters who look, well, absolutely identical but she swears up and down that the genetic testing they had done was wrong and they must be fraternal. As their mother, she sees their hearts and souls and minds, not their outer shells. And that’s what it’s like when you adopt.

You’ll get asked some strange questions.

When you have an adopted child you will be asked personal and sometimes ridiculous questions. Such as, “Will you tell him he’s adopted?” In our case, our son is half Asian and we aren’t, so it would be kind of tough to hide that fact, don’t you think? Where was he born? Why did you adopt? What country/state/planet is he from? How old was he when you got him? Are you in touch with his “real” mother? How much did it cost to adopt? What if he wants to look for his parents? Why didn’t you just try in vitro? Didn’t you want to pass on your own genes? And on and on...

My answers, when I chose to give them, often depended on how nosy or obnoxious the person asking the question was, my mood (I may have given snarky answers from time to time) and how pressed for time I was. I am pretty open about most things but the adoption story is my son’s and not mine and, therefore, there have to be some boundaries. It’s up to each parent how much they are willing to share about their adoption situation and, ultimately, it will be up to your child to decide who to share the particulars about his birth story with.

You’ll get unsolicited horror stories.

For some reason, when you have an adopted child, people think you want to hear what I call “adoption stories gone wrong.” They might mention a news story about adoptive parents who had to give their child back to a birth parent and ask you if you’re worried that could happen, as if they are talking about a recall on a vacuum or vehicle. I actually had to assure people we were on top of the legal end of things and that we made sure we sealed the deal before we brought our son home. Maybe they were worried about buying a gift for a baby who might be temporary, who knows?

In addition to horror stories, people will also be sure to tell you how “lucky” your child is (even though we feel like the lucky ones). I wonder if they tell parents of biological children that their kids are fortunate? And how do they know what kind of parents we are anyway–maybe we’re awful and they should feel sorry for our kids. Actually, if I am to believe what all my boys told us when they were in their teens, we are pretty bad parents.

You’ll be surprised in good ways.

Another thing I really want you to know is how awesome adoption is in so many ways. When we adopted our son, I didn’t have to worry about losing the million pounds I gained during my three pregnancies. This may sound a little shallow but it’s definitely a bonus.

I loved hearing how amazing I looked when I went out with my adopted newborn son as opposed to, “Well, you don’t look too awful,” when I went out with my babies after my C-sections. Another plus about adoption was discovering our son’s personality and unique talents without preconceived notions about which (positive and negative) traits he would inherit from my husband or me.

How cool to discover he had artistic ability even though we can barely draw stick figures. Someone once told me adopting is like unwrapping a gift and it’s really true. An adopted child starts out with the clean slate all children deserve.

And finally...

I can assure you that there is no difference in the love you feel for your adopted child versus a biological one. This I can promise. Because, love knows no bounds.
