November Adoption Awareness
November is nationa adoption awareness month and I have been listening to the podcast Adoptees On. This podcast is telling the stories of adoptees and their experience of adoption. It’s so important to me that we learn from other, good or bad, so we can be prepared for the conversations, trauma, and experiences we will have as adoptive parents. Today I met a woman who asked if we had children and when I told her not yet but we are hoping to adopt she told me that she was adopted! It was so humbling to hear her story, the experience she had when she met her biological family, and her view of adoption. She was so excited for us and she was such an encouragement. We love hearing stories from others! It was such a special moment for me to learn from her.
