Display name: adoptingyou

You must think how I felt the other day when walking through the shopping centre to come across an old woman whose face dropped to the floor when she saw me and my husband with our black son.

Its no secret that I support the adoption cause so it came as a shock to me that adoption has decreased by 52% and foster parenting has increased by 72%.

You watch them when they sleep in your arms and think how lucky you are to have such a beautiful child.

Many people have asked why we chose adoption instead of having our own kids. The general assumption is that we cannot have our own.

Iv been through the process of adoption, I have jumped through the hoops and gone through the emotions which come with such a decision.

Life…it’s the strangest thing at the best of times. Soon as you think you have everything figured out, it'll throw you a curve ball, or in our case a baby.


How many times in your life have you heard the words “if its meant to be it will” or “everything happens for a reason”…

We decided we wanted you 2 years ago. After 6 years being together me and your daddy decided we it was time to bring you into this world.


After posting my article yesterday about my adoption, I actually got a response saying that my story is too good to be true.


Adoption to many people is a scary word. A word associated with babies being ripped from adoptive mothers arms, court cases which last years and kids who abandon you when they turn 18.
