Dissolved: When Always Isn’t Forever. . .

Our Adoption Story…

 

This is my personal account of our journey through adoption. I haven’t included every detail of our lives at the time. But you will get the gist. Hard truths will be shared. And though this account is just our story, there are hundreds of adoption experiences exactly like it, but I can only speak for our own. It is important to note that though I speak frankly about our children and their difficulties (and our own struggles), the blame is not on them (or even us). In fact, in some situations, there is no blame to be laid.

 

The fall of man has a far-reaching devastation, and our circumstances are a perfect example of this.  I have purposely left out names of people and places in an effort to keep your eyes on the message. I am not out to publicly defame anyone, but I AM sharing our experience, and that inevitably involves other people. Our discretion here is intentional. We hope it will open the eyes of those who have the false notion that all adoptions are a fairy-tale, mirroring something they’ve seen in the movies. We believe education is the golden key to success in adoption. We long to be a voice for those still in the trenches. We pray it will cause others to realize not everything is as they think it should be. And we want those moving forward in the process of adoption to be thoroughly prepared for the road ahead. We appreciate your caring enough to read and share with others…
