Description

Today… we are talking about a pretty ummm… squishy subject… Foster care is the willingness to provide safe space for a child until their biological family is healthy enough to reunite, but the reality is that isn’t the happy ending of all cases. There are times when reunification is no longer a viable option and adoption becoming the case goal. Adoption can be such an incredible part of a family’s story and often is, but just like with anything in life can come with great highs and low lows. We have 3 biological daughters who are 15, 14, and 12, we also have an adopted son who is 2 and an 11month old foster daughter who will become our forever daughter early next year. That is a significant age gap, and to be honest there have been moments with two babies crying in the backseat of my car that I think, “What have I done?” Maybe you have asked yourself that same question when it comes to parenting, biologically, through adoption, or foster care.  But what happens when the roller coaster of parenting and adoption doesn’t start to tick back up the next hill? Today we are talking about adoption regret. I have read a lot about this over the last several weeks and every story is so vastly different. Our guest today has decided to bravely share her adoption regret story. Whether this story is eerily similar to what you are walking through, or maybe vastly different, but you recognize the feelings and emotion, I hope you are encouraged as we listen to this mama share her vulnerable story of adoption regret.
