Working in the yard this weekend, we built a reminder of this time in quarantine that hopefully will endure for years to come.
A lot of times we talk about the differences in adoption, but we never talk about just how absolutely normal adoption really is.
There are many levels of tiredness in the adoption process. Planning, waiting and when the children are home. Let's face it, adoption is exhausting!
I didn't expect the parallels that I saw tonight between The Crown's Aberfan episode and adoption. But they were there.. and they were deep.
More than a year after our adoption was complete, someone asked me if I felt like I was finally a dad. That was awkward. It just goes to show that adoption is a process.
