As I was organizing paperwork in my office today, I stumbled across our adoptive family profile for American Adoptions. I had created at least 2 before in addition to this website and Facebook page (not to mention the video profile!). At the time it was created, I pretty much didn’t want to see or hear about a profile ever again. They’re tons of work and surprisingly, emotional. But, I’ve been trying to find this particular profile for awhile. Why? Well, that’s both simple and complicated.
We haven’t had too much to share, but now, we do! After a very long process and wait, we are active and approved with American Adoptions. This means that our profile will start to be shown to expectant mothers that have decided to place through their agency. It’s another tool/resource. We still have our Virginia agency, adoption lawyer, and social media accounts to help us connect with an expectant mother. So, you could still be our connection! We don’t really know how many expectant families have seen our profile or learned about us, but we feel like many more will be seeing it through American.
When we found out last week that we were approved, it felt a little like Christmas! Below is our adoption video American helped us make. Feel free to share. And thank you to all of you have already shared. We appreciate your continued support in our dreams of becoming parents.
