Today on Rise Together we’re talking about something we’ve never discussed in detail with our audience, the incredible and emotionally-trying journey we took to adoption. In what ended up being 5 long years of our lives, we navigated both international and domestic adoption, becoming foster parents, and the complicated waters of state and national child-care agencies, all in the name of completing our family. It resulted in some of the toughest seasons of our lives but also the sweetest moments and we are so blessed to be able to share this story with you.

If you’re interested in learning more about adoption or foster care, find as many people in your community who can share their story.  Follow folks on social who share theirs like some of our IG favorites: @elsielarson, @thisgatherednest, @theluckyfewofficial and @adopttogether.

National Angels (https://www.nationalangels.org) is an organization that walks alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building and mentorship.

We mentioned Jen Hatmaker’s book Interrupted (https://amzn.to/2BW6sSv), it landed at a time to encourage our jumping into awesome interruption.  Our friend Heather Avis also writes the story of being called into adoption in her book The Lucky Few (https://amzn.to/2BY5EfT).
