Finding my delight in the journey of adoption.

Adoption Posts

I don’t have much to update today, but I hope to later this week!  Baby’s coming soon, Lord willing.

I was honored a couple weeks ago that my blog was mentioned by PEAR (Parents for Ethical Adoption Reform) in a post about ethics in DRC adoptions.  PEAR is a non-profit org that seeks to provide resources and information to prospective adoptive parents, specifically in the arena of ethics.  I have found their website really helpful and necessary as we try and navigate the process.  Check it out!

My blog post on Adoption Agency Accountability was also mentioned by The Adopted Ones Blog last week.  So fun!  It’s a great blog from an adoptee’s perspective.

Finally, I recommend you read Family Hope Love if you are passionate about caring for orphans and widows.  Sara is writing a book geared toward international adoption reform as a parent who has walked the journey.  She wrote a very convicting post that, I think, really highlights the role we are prospective parents play in encouraging further corruption.  It’s a tough read, but worth it.

    Familyhopelove post was incredible. I hope it becomes mandatory reading for everyone in adoption. Thanks for linking to me – kind of risky because I have been known to get angry 🙂 at the practices and not word things as nice as others.

  2. May God bring strength/health/peace/rest to these pregnant days! Thanks for the link to “Family/Hope/Love”, I really like her list of “questions” to be able to ask your organization as you’re on the journey to adopt!!
