Everything about adoption screams leap of faith.
Believing with all your heart that this is the right path. Accepting that the plan for your family includes a great deal of uncertainty. Understanding that this ambiguity doesn’t dissolve when the adoption finalizes; rather, it will insert itself back into your lives at entirely unpredictable moments.
Holding faith that you will love your children into and through every storm.
Adoption demands the same leap of faith from children.
Believing they are deeply loved for the people they are, not for a perfect image they try to project, then working to strengthen that belief when it falters. Finding safe space to talk about anxiety buried within, and asking for help instead of hiding fear away.
Holding faith that they are bright, beautiful souls in the world, worthy of love and respect by their very presence on this journey.
