Words.

“Because people are valuable and their hearts are precious, we do our best to develop accurate language around the matters of adoption.  For instance…

We don’t say “Put their baby up for adoption….” – we say “Made an adoption plan.”

We’ve dealt with positive adoption language here on this blog before, and recently, I had a very personal experience with it.  For the first time, my daughter came home and told me someone in her class asked her where her “real mom” is.  My heart sank.  I hate that I can’t protect her from things like this.  I hate that I can’t educate all the other kids out there and let them know what language is hurtful to our family.  BUT, you know what?  My girl rocks so hard! 🙂  I said, “Lily, what did you say when he asked you that?”  And she replied (without missing a single beat), “I told him he obviously doesn’t know the right language.  I told him what he meant to ask me is where my birth mother is.  And I told him my adoption story.”  That girl is confident in her origins and in her place in this world.  My seven year old did some educating of her own and was confident enough to do so and then come home and tell me all about it.  I love the line above – people are valuable and their hearts are precious.  They are so, so precious.

Congratulations, Katherine and Tim!

hannahclaireLook at this sweet beauty!  Katherine and Tim got started with Christian Adoption Consultants at the end of August.  They had been waiting for awhile and felt discouraged at the lack of options for families who were already parenting biological kiddos.  It was such a joy and privilege to help them welcome Hannah Claire into their family less than two months later!  I know her big brothers are going to take such good care of her 😉  Thank you, Katherine and Tim, for blessing me with opportunity to help bring your precious girl home!
