Two months ago, my husband and I faced a heartbreaking decision.
We have been planning and praying for years about adopting a child internationally. An opportunity came. And we turned it down.
Normally we hear inspiring stories about adoption—what it was like for parents to meet their child, how they’ve overcome obstacles to bring them home.
Yet sometimes we need to hear about the not-so-inspiring stories. This process, by nature, is messy.
Autumn Beam from Write Your Own Story Podcast read our story and invited me to be on her show. I was thrilled that she asked, as this is the only podcast I listen to religiously. We have a similar mindset when it comes to our beliefs and what we want to share with the world.
We talked all about the adoption as well as handful of other fun things going on in our lives: my obsession with decluttering, what’s inspiring us, how to pray, and of course hot mess moments.
