Adoption awareness month. I’ve hesitated posting anything this month. I’ve struggled back & forth. I’ve watched some of the posts filling my feed simply saying “yay celebrate adoption” with a cute pic of their kid attached. I’ve watched the posts filled with frustration over a month that seems to glorify something that is only a need due to loss and grief. I always want to be sensitive. I want to see both perspectives. I want to always give my son room to grieve. I grieve with him. I hate the need for adoption. But, I also get to daily see the gift of family. I get to see redemption play out before my eyes. I get to see joy amidst the pain and grief. As I responded to a sweet mama who wrote me this morning asking how I balance being super excited to be in the adoption process, to be excited to see their child’s face, but feeling guilty because it means such loss for that child...that same struggle arose in my heart. But that’s the beauty. It’s the beauty in the midst of grief that there is a mama fighting for a child who has faced such loss. It’s the beauty of seeing something the enemy meant to destroy...God came to redeem. It’s the beauty of seeing a child be allowed to fight & grieve in a safe space. This is adoption. It’s messy. It’s hard. It’s heartbreaking. But it’s a beautiful opportunity to be a part of redemption. Be a part of allowing healing & hope in an impossibly hard story. This is adoption. It’s wrecked our lives & opened our eyes to new perspectives. It’s humbled us & forced me to step aside & know that he’ll never be fully mine, because he will always be partly hers. It’s humbling as you have to learn & be opened to handling being a safe place for your child fight you in order to process. But, it’s the most important journey we’ve ever walked & it is worth it. It’s worth stepping up because reunification isn’t always an option. Yes we can take steps to support community, we can make programs to change cultures to see the value in women & children. But Adoption is sometimes the only option & if we don’t step up to open our homes to be that space...the problem doesn’t go away. Talk to me about adoption.

Playing under such a large, beautiful tree has its benefits and drawbacks. Benefits are obvious and include feeling like a magical fairy flute player. Drawbacks include getting hit on the head by acorns while trying to maintain an even vibrato and general composure. . . . #vscocam #vscocalifornia #california #kalifornien #visitcalifornia #naturalcalifornia #lookup #treelovers #fall #autumn #herbst #ojai #overlandandsea

Belgaren är en rekommendation att följa på sina sociala medier.

Today was something sweet. A day I’ll treasure for a long time. Five years ago when @mattkirk2911 and I were living here for a few months we spent a really hard, but memory filled weekend celebrating my mom’s life along with our first anniversary. We ran to watch the sunset behind the Eiffel tower. And would escape up to eat crepes and watch it sparkle on our days off. Two years later we went on, what we thought would be our babymoon. Akers was supposed to be coming home in a couple months so we revisited our favorite places and every time we wandered around Paris we would talk and dream about bringing him here someday. We talked about how much he would love the playgrounds and the carousel and how much fun we would have. Then one year later when we were finally on our way to India...our tickets happened to have a 24 hour layover in Paris. It was the last time we were here and we walked around in all our anxious anticipation of what was about to happen. Today we introduced the boys to Paris. It was a bit surreal walking those same paths, riding the carousel with both our boys, watching them and eat crepes with the Eiffel Tower in the background. It felt sweetly full circle and complete. So get ready to be bombarded by my overgramming because I want all of today in our online journal here. . #adoption #fullcircle #Aok #Paris #family #porchtopassportfamily #memories #favoriteplaces #marriage #familyjourney #overlandandsea

It has been 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Thank goodness Germans realized that walls aren't the answer. Walls are never the answer. . . . Btw: if you haven't checked it out already, Tunnel 29 is a new podcast about a man who escaped to former West Berlin and built a tunnel to former East Berlin. . . . #vscocam #berlin #berlinwall #berlinermauer #germany #deutschland #overlandandsea
