RE: Never Too Old for Family

We adopted a 13-year-old. She is 17 now, with an incredibly bright future! These kids deserve a great start to adulthood provided by a loving family.

One of the boys who comes to our after-school program has been in foster care and his foster family officially adopted him this week, a few days before he turned 18. Brought tears to my eyes when I heard about it.

RE: “Feeling Depressed When Friends Announce They’re Pregnant”

Infertility brought me to adoption. It hurts less now that I am a mom, but it is a painful part of me and will always hurt, no matter how happy I am that I went through the pain to get to where I am now—a lot closer with my husband and a mom to two amazing kids!

As a husband I can identify with much of this article, especially wanting my wife to experience pregnancy and all it brings. We’re still grieving even though we’re in the waiting phase of adoption.
