30 Adoption Stories in 30 Days – Come Meet Your Son

Remember I told you that our foster care – to- adoption story was accepted into the 30 Adoption Stories in 30 Days project?

Well, it’s live!

All told, we were matched and finalized in about a year. We were matched with a healthy newborn with the specific ethnicities that match our family. We worked with amazing social workers (the baby had three over the course of a year) and our super, duper amazing adoption worker. When we started, I would have said that a story like this couldn’t happen. There are a lot of negative ideas out there about adopting from foster care. Those stories may be part of the truth, but they are not the whole truth. This is our story.

Of course there is more to the story. Check out the whole shebang over at Chicago Now.
