Don’t Assume You Know Why We Adopted

We adopted a child. Here’s what we want you to know about it. In this article, three different parents share their stories about what adoption means to them.

A collection of quotes from this beautiful collection of insights:

“I always welcome people’s curiosity and never take offense at questions about why we adopted.”

“Amy is my child. She is part of me. Whether or not she came from my body is irrelevant; she is in my heart.”

“You always have room in your heart for another child without there being less to go around.”

“If I hadn’t had children, I would find being an adoptive parent a lot more challenging. I know that everything is a phase and that as long as your child knows you’re always there, whatever, that’s all that matters.”

“It’s very different from when you take a newborn home and all you’re worried about is sleep and feeding, even though that seems monumental at the time.”

“My advice to anyone considering adoption is ‘Go for it.’ You get back what you put in 110%.”

Three different families. Three different stories. Three different children. Countless lessons learned.
