A Word on Adoption

It's almost the New Year; Happy Nearly-2014! And if I haven't seen you lately, Merry Christmas too!

I stumbled upon this little gem the other day as I was doing some research on an upcoming (adoptive) parenting conference that I had learned about via my "adoptive parent hero," Christine Moers (you can read her very raw and wonderful blog here).

As adoptive parents, many of us have it rough to be sure, but it is nothing compared to the experience of those we have adopted.

This 13-minute video expresses beautifully the very bittersweet experience that is adoption. I encourage you to take a few minutes to watch it here.

Then go out and hug someone who has adopted or been adopted.

Thanks.
