Hoping to Adopt

It's pretty rare that I share very personal info on this blog, but I wanted to share my sister's news that they have decided to adopt. Diana is six years younger than me, and I'm biased, but I think she is adorable. After several years of infertility, she and her husband Marc have decided to pursue adoption to build their family.


You can find out more about them on their blog: We Are Hoping for a Family

Adoption is not an easy process for adoptive parents or birth parents. I worked as a social worker in adoption for about five years and saw the ups and downs of this process. I also saw amazing relationships develop between adoptive and birth families as they shared this experience. If you know someone considering adoption, please feel free to pass along Diana and Marc's information.

  1. I've had several friends who have adopted, both domestically and internationally - it is quite the process and all have had beautiful outcomes! I wish them the best of luck on their journey!

  4. I wish them the best of luck. My older sister was unable to have children and after several years of struggle was finally able to adopt. She now has 3 precious children that we love so much! You are a good supportive sister :-)

  5. My son and his wife just adopted their second baby. I feel so blessed to be the Grammie to these two sweet children and am so grateful for the birth parents that made my son's dream come true. I wish your sister all the best and hope you are able to tell us of a happy outcome soon. My son and his wife were matched and had a baby in under 8 months both times!
