Absolutely love the amazing story of Michaela DePrince. Her ballet dreams began when a magazine cover with a ballerina blew up against the gates of her orphanage. Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Madonna, and so incredibly inspiring. .

National Adoption Day: A day that will stand out and mean more to me than any other day in my life, other than the day my sweet girl was placed in my arms.
This day was a long time coming for me. Nothing short of conventional that’s for sure. But, we were brought together by the Grace Of God. Only HE knew the path my life was going to take and the timing I never knew.
I will forever be thankful that I was able to stand in the room and see my daughter be born. To experience something I never personally will be able to experience. It’s very hard to explain the emotions that go into standing next to your child’s birth mother and watch her wholeheartedly hand her to you. I was able to walk out of that room and fully take on the biggest responsibility ever handed to me.
I could never have traveled this journey without my sister by my side. She was my constant support system during many challenging moments. She left her job and family for 2 weeks to be there for us.
I will forever be grateful that she was there with me through this entire journey because I could not have done it alone.
The amount of people who prayed and supported me through my journey from beginning to end still blows me away! Many of you I don’t even know...but, I want to say thank you all so much for the encouraging words and prayers!
I made a choice as a single woman to be her momma, never knowing how that would be viewed. You all have shown us both more love than I ever expected!! I am so thankful for the community I live in.
Daily I look at her and am reminded of the moment I took my own personal leap of faith. No matter what the future held. No more holding my breath....because she’s forever mine 💖✨ To anyone else out there holding onto hope, hoping, praying...don’t give up! Because you’re miracle is on the way. #adoptionrocks #charlotterose #mompreneur #dontgiveup #miracle

Y'all....we found the perfect sign for our little man! This is so true to his adoption story. He has the most loving birth parents and we cannot wait to welcome him to our family. We're getting really close! Like really close! The doctor wants to induce her the week after Christmas.

Today is National Adoption Day . 37 years ago a young beautiful couple decided to change someone’s life. They selflessly decided I was the one they were looking for. I was the one who they wanted to bring into their home. I was the one at first glance that made their hearts skip a beat and their souls smile. 37 years ago I was adopted into a home I would never fully understand until I was old enough how it would change my life forever. My past will always be in the past. The unknown answers and the “why’s” .. I was someone who needed to be adopted will always be there. The curiosity at times may rise to the surface. The one thing that will never change is my love and pure gratitude for the two beautiful people I am honored to call mom and dad. You helped me write the most beautiful story i could never have dreamed. I am who I am because of you, I’m a mom with two beautiful girls because of you, I am lucky enough to have found my best friend and soul mate because of you. You gave me everything and I owe you everything. #nationaladoptionmonth #nationaladoptionday #adoption #adopted #mom #momlife #momblogger #moms #moment #mommy #moments #momma #mommyhood #mommylove #newmom #love #beforeimetyou #adoptiversary #adoptionjourney #adopted #savethechildren #adoptionrocks #newlife #opportunity #chance #newbeginnings #newbeginning #mothers #motherslove

It’s national adoption day ✨ a day celebrated with finalizing adoptions from foster care. A life changing day for so many forever families. A day we are reminded that there are many ways to build a family 🖤
.
.
Dealing with infertility, we are often asked “why not foster” or told to “just adopt”. There’s not “why not” or “just” when it comes to adoption or becoming a foster parent. There is love & sacrifice & heartbreak & hope. There is trauma & joy. There are families that are broken apart & families that become whole. Foster parenting is an amazing act of love for most. We started our journey to foster care almost a year ago, it quickly ended. Our current family dynamics do not allow us to become licensed foster parents. My father, whom I care for, disqualifies us, I’ll save my opinions for another post. .
.
The anger that came with being told we could not provide a safe place to land for children in need, led us to embryo adoption. There are currently 400,000+ embryos frozen here in the US and more across the globe. Now, not all of them are without a parent. This number is inflated in a sense to make it seem like there are so many lives frozen in time. Many of these embryos are frozen & waiting to be transferred to their biological parents but there are many that are waiting for their forever family & who are placed with agencies or placed for donation. Parents have options when it comes to their remaining embryos. There are many reasons why someone would have “extra” embryos & they can choose to destroy them, donate them to science or place them for adoption/donation & give other families a chance at a baby. The act of placing their remaining embryos for adoption/donation also give their genetic material, their children, a chance at life. .
.
The embryos are loved, they are wanted, they are dreamed about. All of their parents want them to have a fighting chance at life. Our babies are waiting and although they don’t contain our DNA, we will be theirs and they will be ours ❄️ .

National Adoption Month: “Oh my goodness! She’s adopted? I never would have guessed.” We never imagined when we entered the adoption world that our kids would look like us. That was never our plan. We just expected our kids would look drastically different from us. And we didn’t care.
What is so funny is that Callie actually looks more like @philconge. Phillip and Callie’s birth dad look like they could be brothers. It’s crazy! I’d like to say I look like her birth mom because that would be the worlds biggest compliment but we are definite not quite as similar.

Do I love sharing similar features to my kids? Yes. Kinsley is at the stage realizing what features are similar and which are different. It gives those bonding conversations but I also want them to know where their amazing beauty came from....their birth parents.

I’ve kept up with posting and I’ve really been slacking on reading and interacting 😔

Nerf Party Success!
It was his first friend party since kindergarten. We ask him every year if he wants a friend party, and he has not been interested.
He had the time of his life! Friends came. Teams were made. Bullets were flying. He talked to EVERYONE.
He only got angry once. But he was the sweetest, apologizing to his friends (unprompted) while they ate donuts and drank hot chocolate.
And in true autism form, after the party he sat alone and watched a movie, cocooned in his blanket to decompress from all the stimulation!
THANK YOU to everyone who helped us celebrate our (newest) favorite 11 year old!! .
