Growing Your Garden While You Wait

A very common issue (I know it was for me!) during the adoption process is the wait time.  It’s so hard to wait.  And to wait.  And wait some more. 🙂  I’ve had so many families talk to me about creating life books during the wait, journaling to their some day baby through the process so they could let them know how they were loved and prayed for and planned for, and I’ve had families who have planted and harvested gardens during the wait.  It’s a tangible thing to hold onto – a concrete way to see that you’re doing something to prepare.  Trees have been planted in a future child’s honor, flower gardens, rock gardens, peace gardens – you name it.

Adoptive Families has an excellent article this month about growing your life while you wait.  I’ll link it HERE.

What did you do while you were waiting?  Did you document the experience for your some day baby?

Summer Discount!!



Not sure how it’s been in your neck of the woods, but it has been crazy hot around here!  In “honor” of the summer heat (or maybe as a break from it!), we’re pleased to offer a little shower of blessings on your family at this time in your adoption journey. 

Any families signing up with Christian Adoption Consultants between July 16th and July 31st will receive a summer discount!  All consulting packages (except the Do-It-Yourself package) will be 15% off during this time. 

If you are open to adopting a child of any ethnicity through our “Minority Program”, the normal 10% discount will be 20% off during this time.

Don’t miss out on this great savings! We only offer discounts like this a couple of times a year.   Email me ASAP if you would like to get started:
