?'s you might have
Q: Why do you want to adopt if you can have kids?
A: Actually, there's a bit to that question. First off, It's a major struggle for me to get pregnant due to complications with my ovaries and secondly, I always KNEW in my heart that i would be a mother to adopted children since i was 13 yrs of age. When i was dating Brandon, i told him that i wanted to adopt several children when i got married and He then told me that He was adopted and wanted to do the same! He grew up with one brother, who was also adopted, and was 8 yrs younger than him. He has always had the desire to have a big family and also wants so badly to adopt many children. We just KNOW that God's plan for building our family will be mostly through adoption and we are so excited to see who the next member of our family will be. So, in our case we want to adopt because we CHOOSE to and We Know it's How we are MEANT to build our family!
Q: Do you expect a birth-mother to have an Open adoption like you have with Brielle's Birth-mother?
A: Not at all. I want you to do what's most comfortable for you. If you choose a closed, semi-open, or open, you must be comfortable with your decision. No pressure from us to do something you don't have the desire to do. To learn more about these terms visit adoption.com
Q: How will i Know that my child will be SPECIAL to you?
A: Just because this child isn't going to be our first baby doesn't mean that it will be treated differently or be less special to us. Each child is unique and divine to us as they are to God. We will shout for joy and cry many tears of gratitude for this baby. We will never take Brielle's adoption for granted as would we with any other adoption. Each placement, birth mother and child will be forever in our hearts and minds and each baby will be treated like a Heavenly Princess or Prince- as they all are!
Q: What agency are you you with?
A: We will be going through our church agency LDS family services. This is the only way we can protect ourselves and give you the BEST quality care and after placement care as well. Visit ldsfamilyservices.org .We used this same agency with Brielle and are more than satisfied with their professionalism and case by case sensitivity.
Q: Do you have a preference boy or girl, race, special needs, older child, multiples?
A: We are not ready for a special needs baby/child yet as we are caring for younger growing kids and may not have the capacity for a child with disabilities yet. I spent 6 years volunteering with the Physically and Mentally impaired and i have such a big place in my heart for special needs kids but, at this time, i feel it would take away from my other children too much right now.
We are however, happy to have any mixed race or Caucasian boy or girl or multiples! Yep, after having 2 girls, I'd still love to have another little princess!!!
I sure hope i get lucky enough to have many girls and boys! Brandon can't wait to have a little man around the house to ward off some of this estrogen going around! Our agency doesn't usually place older children but, we are willing to take a child younger than 1 year for sure. I am pretty sure they can accommodate any birth mother and child.
My brothers are fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. My Bro-in-law is fluent in Spanish and my husbands Speaks Tagalog. So, racial diversity and cultural diversity is Fabulous! I hope to have a very wide range of skin tones in our family!!!:)
Q: Why aren't you just satisfied with having your 2 girls?
A: It's not a matter of being satisfied or grateful. It's our desire to have more children than just 2. We have FAITH in God's little plan for our family and know that if someone is to place a child in our family- they will just have to really KNOW in their heart and mind- it's where this baby is supposed to be. No matter of convincing will do- you will just have to know and feel that it's right.
