During National Adoption Month, I wrote 13 guest posts regarding various adoption related topics. This is a round up of those posts - which I hope will bless and encourage you! There are posts for adoptive families, waiting families, prospective adoptive families, those who want to help orphans without adopting, and those who simply want to draw closer to Jesus!
Research indicates trauma not only effects a person’s memories and emotions, but can also alter the physical state of their brain. Every child that has been adopted has experienced trauma. Even infants, who leave the hospital in the arms of their adoptive parents, experience trauma through the loss of their biological family.
November is National Adoption Month. It's a time where, as a nation, we focus on the orphan crisis and the role each of us can play in caring for orphans. This month is especially dear to our family, as we celebrate our sons, and advocate for other children.
In a society where quick fixes and instant gratification are the norm, we must remember God designed most things to be a process. Jesus often used the analogy of farming to share His message. Nothing speaks to process like a farming analogy.
A week ago today, I began taking supplements that I'm hopeful will greatly impact my health, and the health of our family! While I intended to get us all started - stat! - after praying with my husband, we decided to give it a try before giving it to our children.
I have kept a daily journal of how I'm feeling. Truth be told, while I know this isn't a miracle solution - and that it wouldn't reverse every complication in my body immediately - I was still hopeful I would see a huge impact in just one week! I was hoping to feel way more energetic and be in awe of the symptoms just going away.
Here you will find the musings of a homeschooling, work from home, adoptive Momma of 6! Adventures in faith, family, adoption, and training up a tribe of little people to follow hard after Jesus are spilled into these posts --- most often written with a cup of coffee in hand. I hope you'll stick around a while and find something - more likely SOMEONE! - that brings you hope!
