About Me

My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

Help Needed - Disrupted Adoption

There are times when parents have exhasuted all options, times when drastic, painful, but neccessary action is needed to take place. That is when respite care or disruption happens in a family.

Respite care is when a family (related or unrelated) takes in a child or sibling group for a specific time to allow the parents to regroup and come back to try new things with the children. And a disrupted adoption takes place when the family decides that the children aren't doing well in the home, with these parents and/or children, and the best thing is to seek out a family that will provide a different atmosphere for these children. Don't judge these families harshly, adoption is NOT like having biological children where your DNA is passed on to the child. With adoption, you don't know what issues will present themselves until the child is in your home. You have no history to assess what this child will be like, or whether they will flourish with siblings, or if they need to be only children.

With that being said, there is a sibling group of two that needs a family. If you're interested, go to Christine's website at www.smilesandtrials@blogspot.com

Here's the link to the information about the two children, 10 and 12:
