Adoption: Let’s Be Honest

Adoption: Let's Be HonestHi All –

I made this video last week just for you. Mama Juju has been going through some hard soul searching about adopting and have finally got an idea why, somewhat!

Please grab a cup of coffee as I share this with you.

  1. Thank-you for your v-log post. I happened upon it while perusing my Triberr feed. My husband and I for years have struggled with unknown fertility problems and have had a lot of people tell us, “Don’t worry there’s always adoption,” like it is some easy alternative.

    I’ve known for years that if we decided to adopt it would be hard on so many levels. We are approaching making this decision but after the emotional roller coaster we’ve already been on I know that we can’t move forward until I’ve built up the strength to face the many trials of adoption even though the results can be wonderful. Thanks for being so honest, its nice to hear someone else say it.

  2. I’ve noticed the same thing lately with myself – responding “Don’t do it” when told by someone they want to adopt. I follow it up with, “They’re cute when they’re 2, but it’s not so cute when they’re 10.” I’m using our experiences to make a difference for the future children by working with state agencies and social workers to properly educate on the long-term real effects of multiple moves while in foster care. I allow them to use our story, names withheld, to give a true-to-life example of what adoptive parents may be looking at 10 years down the road.
