It’s been a little over a year since my husband and I adopted our baby son.
And during this first year, I’ve had the same conversation dozens of times with curious strangers, family, and friends wondering why we chose adoption and how the process works.
Most times, I don’t mind. In fact, I have my standard answers all ready to go — short, sweet, and to the point. But there’s also so much more that I'd like to say.
That's why I'd like to share my extended answers to the six questions I typically get asked about adoption. Of course, this is just my personal experience and I respect and honor that each family’s story is different. But I hope that by sharing my thoughts here, we can create better awareness and understanding of what adoption's really like.
