It’s an exciting time here at the agency. Being the beginning of the year, we take the time to reflect on the work we have done in the last year, the families we had a hand in helping to grow, the annual photo cards we receive that show us how big children have gotten, but also, we take this time to reflect on what families have asked us for and how we can offer them more or make things different in the coming year.
My favorite holiday adoption memory comes from a few years ago. I don’t play favorites with my families (they are all so amazing!), but the couple I want to share about today has a special place in my heart. I was able to work with Paul and Cindy from start to finish on both of their adoptions.
Paul and Cindy had worked with us for their first adoption, and when it came time for them to adopt a second time, they were so excited to begin the process.
I wanted to share my favorite Christmas morning recipes! I make it the night before and pop it in the oven before everyone wakes up. The smell throughout the house is so yummy. Then we get the coffee brewing and dive into French Toast Bake (Compliments of Pioneer Woman)

November is an exciting time for Heart of Adoptions. It’s National Adoption Month. This month was filled with events, give aways, and “Thank you’s” to all the adoption support we have in the community. We want to take a minute look back on what has occurred during this exciting month.
We kicked of the month by attending New Life Solutions Celebrate Life benefit dinner! Such a great organization! A packed house learned about the amazing way they serve women and families in the community.
It took me 2095 days to finally becoming a mother.
2095 days. That's 299.43 weeks, 68.8 months and 5.74 years.
I did not picture it like this.
Normally you're pretty close in 9 months. In 40 weeks you are ready.
And hey, It was about 1 child only.
In these 68 months I could produce and give birth to a complete football team.
Unfortunately, it went differently. Sometimes things go like this.
Was it easy and would I do it again?
No. It was not easy and yes, I would do it again right away!
