On Our Hearts


I'm an adoptive mama to one through Domestic Infant Adoption, and I'm a big sister to 11 adopted through the foster care system. I write candidly about our struggles with how others view race, our fears of attachment, and the pain of the birthparent.

Why did you decide to adopt?

What was the biggest challenge or hurdle you faced in the adoption process?

When and how did you (or will you) tell your child they were adopted?
