You know that feeling when you’re standing at the top of a big slide (or rollercoaster or cliff at the lake) and it feels so frightening you just don’t know if you’ll be able to push yourself?! Like am I really about to willingly put myself through this terror?! YES!! ...the moment of falling down the slide-flying on the rollercoaster or free falling into the water are some of the more freeing, exhilarating moments of life. And today I’m grateful for the opportunity to experience them. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest!! Now go put your phone down and do something fun with your family or make a list of some new things to try out this week!!😘 Live your fullest life!

Did you know that there are many older children who are waiting for families? Also the longer they wait, the less likely they are to be adopted! Could you or someone you know be the right family for an older child? Link in our bio to request more information.

When our children are baptized, the fathers have the opportunity to say a blessing over them. Here is Sam‘s blessing as recited by his father last Sunday 💙 “Samuel means “asked of God, heard by God”. Samuel Alexander, you are the answer to three years of earnest prayers and a precious gift from our very loving and merciful heavenly Father. Your mother and I pray that you will come to know the Lord early in life and grow in favor with God and man. Lamentations 3:25 says, “The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” Our prayer for you is that you would walk closely with The Lord and learn to patiently wait on Him and His best for your life. His ways are always good, even when He makes you wait. You are great evidence of that Truth.” - Matthew Moton (aka. Daddy)

Daddies are like miracles
.
& this girl loves hers with a fierce kind of love. A #love which was built on time & trust.
.
When Mila first came home she wasn’t really attached to either one of us. I mean ... the girl had such unhealthy attachment she probably would have gone to our mail lady & let the woman take her home.
.
After all... she came to us without even one hesitation... away from the nanny she knew so well.
.
If you haven’t seen our gotcha/coming home video yet ... the link is in bio.
.
The girl didn’t care who took her or showered her with love, kisses .... & she would most definitely go for food.
.
Totally NOT a normal behavior.
.
What is normal & healthy? A child who screams bloody murder when handed to a total stranger who then proceeds to take the kid away from all that’s familiar.
.
As you would imagine ...
.
It took Mila several months to begin & form any kind of attachment to us. & it began with mama. Mila’s love for me became something fierce. There was a long period when no one in her world existed but mama.
.
Then ...
.
Little by little ... she began to see this  large 6’4” bearded man, with a really loud voice. The man with a silly & gentle demeanor. A man who was always meant to live in her heart in a deep & meaningful way.
.
Something magical began to happen ...
.
She began to fall deeply in love with her daddy. Today ...when I look at the way she adores him ... how she trusts his hand will always catch her each time she flies up into the air ... takes my breath away.
.
I believe ...every little girl needs to be caught by her daddy with that kind of love.
.
Let’s hope China Joy number two 👧🏻 loves daddy with a wild heart of her very own. Because this daddy has so much love to give.

#rondoadoption 👶🏾 round 2 update! My goal is to get all our paperwork complete and mailed off to the adoption agency before we leave to Idaho next Friday. We had our fingerprinting and med appointments done this month, and just have to make a bunch of copies of things. We are looking somewhere online to get our CPR and First Aid certificates renewed (only one each) ASAP. Since last time was in person our social worker said we can find something online to complete our training and print our certificate, and some are free. I’ve already had a few recommendations including Red Cross, but would love to hear if you know of one (comment please)!!?! Once that’s all done we can mail off our homestudy packet and the only thing left will be our home inspection. It’s always tricky trying to get things done quickly when you’re working with two summer schedules (ours and our social workers). But we are so eager to have this homestudy done! If all goes as planned, we should be homestudy approved and ready by end of July. Fingers crossed!!! Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we hope to be matched with our birth mom via word of mouth 🧡. We are choosing to adopt privately like last time, not through an agency. So the more that share our story the better ✨. We’re really rooting for a baby in 2018, only time will tell. THANK YOU!!! #adoptionhomestudy

Feeling so loved and celebrated today at a baby shower that my small group ladies threw me! What a joy it is to celebrate this new addition to #teamdouglas with sisters in Christ. I’m so grateful for each of them and it was awesome to have my two mentors plus friends from small group and Sunday school all in one place! Not to mention the delicious food and gorgeous decor! (Plus—gluten-free cake!!! The first cake I’ve had in 9 months!) Swipe to see more shots from the lovely time this morning! 🌺 #teamdouglasadopts #babyshowerfun #peonylove #glutenfreecake #sistersinchrist

Today Max and Jude traveled up to Tennessee to surprise Michael, Mikayla, and MT who have been camping this week with @journeychurchgriffin on the Hiawassee River. Love Mikayla and Michael’s reactions as they pass us on the Ocoee and realize it is us. And of course the excitement the boys have waiting for Mikayla and Michael to get off the bus is so precious. •

A couple of our favorite wildflower fields are in bloom right now which means I’ll be over-posting this next week. 🌼😂 But seriously look at that face. 😍 My dear friend @katieperkes took this photo the other day and I about died when she sent it to me. My baby girl is getting bigger and cuter every day and I just can’t get enough of that smile of hers. ❤️ #jojoharris #jojoswildflowers #mywildbirdvireo

This cutie turned 8 yesterday! She was not born of my body but was born of my heart. Adoption is not easy, there is a lot of loss and a lot of pain and struggle but at the end of the day it is ALL worth it! My daughters have made me a better person. They have opened my eyes to the racism and injustices that still exist in our country. The experience of being their mother has forced me to look in the mirror at my white privilege and realize that I have no idea what it is like to be black and I will never assume to.  There is a culture we can not give our daughters as their parents and at times I feel so guilty for taking that away from them. All we can do is continue to speak up for equality and surround them with strong black role models who they can see themselves in. I love my girls with everything I have, but I don’t have everything they need. So I will work everyday to learn more, provide more, talk more, advocate more and love more!! Happy Birthday Ethiopian princess!! I love you more than you’ll ever know!!!😘

We can’t always see the benefits in the now...often it isn’t until we look back. Look back now and see all you have survived and the strength you’ve gained. Use this as a driving force to keep moving forward 💪🏼 #adoptionisbrave #adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionrocks #adoptionjourney #adoptionchoicesofarizona

Ever camped in front of your house 😳 Today I practiced opening up our tent getting ready for beach days to come and the kiddos set up shop for the afternoon. We stayed there. Ate out there. If only we had a camp fire. But we did have sprinklers 🙌 Love spur of the moment happiness. This day brought me joy.

Daddies are like miracles
.
& this girl loves hers with a fierce kind of love. A #love which was built on time & trust.
.
When Mila first came home she wasn’t really attached to either one of us. I mean ... the girl had such unhealthy attachment she probably would have gone to our mail lady & let the woman take her home.
.
After all... she came to us without even one hesitation... away from the nanny she knew so well.
.
If you haven’t seen our gotcha/coming home video yet ... the link is in bio.
.
The girl didn’t care who took her or showered her with love, kisses .... & she would most definitely go for food.
.
Totally NOT a normal behavior.
.
What is normal & healthy? A child who screams bloody murder when handed to a total stranger who then proceeds to take the kid away from all that’s familiar.
.
As you would imagine ...
.
It took Mila several months to begin & form any kind of attachment to us. & it began with mama. Mila’s love for me became something fierce. There was a long period when no one in her world existed but mama.
.
Then ...
.
Little by little ... she began to see this  large 6’4” bearded man, with a really loud voice. The man with a silly & gentle demeanor. A man who was always meant to live in her heart in a deep & meaningful way.
.
Something magical began to happen ...
.
She began to fall deeply in love with her daddy. Today ...when I look at the way she adores him ... how she trusts his hand will always catch her each time she flies up into the air ... takes my breath away.
.
I believe ...every little girl needs to be caught by her daddy with that kind of love.
.
Let’s hope China Joy number two 👧🏻 loves daddy with a wild heart of her very own. Because this daddy has so much love to give.

Stop and look at this sweet new family of four. When you see these photos you may notice that their boys are looking away, but it’s not because they didn’t want to be photographed. Sam + Michaela have gone through the long and emotional adoption process and now they’ve added these sweet boys to their family. Why hide their faces? Their adoption process has not been finalized, it takes so long y’all. But their oldest wanted to know when they would add their new family photos to their walls in their home (heart burst) so Michaela’s coworkers reached out to me to get her a session as a gift! Of course we got so many of them with their faces peeking through, but these ones can be used on their social media and  Christmas card- yes, I said Christmas card, because it can take that long for the boys’ adoption to finalize. Bless the Kalisch Family and Michaela + Sam for giving these two boys the best gift, a family with loving parents! 🖤🖤

Here we go.

I've created this account to document our adoption journey. We're at the very beginning.

On June 1st, I requested an information pack, and had a brief exchange of messages with someone at the adoption agency a few days later. Then we jumped into reading the info and some other resources. Yesterday, June 20th, I had a phonecall with the same lady from the agency where she asked me all kinds of questions, to see if we are suitable candidates, which it seems we are! She then sent me a bunch more info to read/watch/listen to, which is what we will be doing next. There's also an information session that we can attend, and we need to make some changes in our home, and then, we can make that first official step.

Excited/scared.

I recently posted about how hard the adoption process can be. Today, I wanted to post about what keeps me going--this woman right here. She is one of my dearest friends and I cannot even begin to tell you how much she means to me. I honestly don't know what I would do without her! Those times when I want to cry and give up, I can send her a text or walk across the street to talk to her and every time she'll somehow help me find the strength to keep going. I know the Lord put her in my life for a reason and I don't know what I would do if I hadn't been brave enough to tell her about our adoption story and the little girl we knew we are meant to adopt.  She is a constant source of strength and love that I so badly need to make it through sometimes. She's the most loving, Christ-like, amazing person that I am so lucky to call my friend. I love that she truly empathizes with I'm going through and cares so much. I love that she has never once been judgemental or questioned the path we felt we needed to take to find our child. She's also helped me want to be a better person for others! 
Guys, adoption is hard. Life is hard. We may not understand why people are doing what they are doing or going through what they are going through, but there's enough to deal with in the world. I hope we can try to be less judgmental and more kind and supportive in whatever we can! Take the time to listen. You have no idea if one kind word or hug might be all a person needs!

This little chunk of love is 4 months today! She has figured out how to roll over both ways, still a little jabber box and is sleeping 8-10 hours at night. Praying that the 4 month sleep regression doesn’t hit this house. 🤞🏻 She still is the happiest baby and smiles all the time! We’ve been on many adventures this last month and she loves being outside! ⛰ Josie continues to fill our lives and hearts with more happiness than we ever imagined. We sure love you baby girl!❤️ #jojoharris #jojofirstyear

Jack texting with his birth brother is pretty sweet! My heart hurts for these two boys and the loss of the close relationship they would have had if Jack wasn’t placed in our family. Thankful that God is walking with our family every step of this journey and SO thankful that he’s holding our hearts in the palm of his hands. Open adoption is hard, but beautiful. 👬#adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionislove #adoptionmadeusafamily #openadoption #godisgracious #thankfulforcellphones

Open adoption is hard, but beautiful. 👬#adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionislove #adoptionmadeusafamily #openadoption #godisgracious #thankfulforcellphones - 4 days ago

Visited a place that forever changed our lives -- our former foster agency. We love this place so much for connecting us to our baby! If you're considering adoption, please dm me & I'd be happy to share our experience with you. 💛

8️⃣ months with this sweet cheeks! 
Maven loves to clap all the time and gives great high fives. She has become a crawling machine and a stage 5 clinger to her mom. This girl has got sass for days and knows what she wants. We’ve discovered her mad face this month and honestly can’t get enough of it! 😂 We love our girl!

Our research shows that 35% of families we polled were encouraged to begin the adoption process after finding encouragement from observing someone else’s positive adoption experience. 
People gravitate to processes that work.  Want to see more waiting children find permanency through adoption?  Make sure the path to adopting a child from foster care is traversable! The quickest way to lose families -is to subjugate them to a process that is disjointed, complex, and that few can get through.

Happy Fathers Day to the best dad around! Remi sure is smitten by you. You’re who she looks to for giggle kisses and warm snuggles. You make her brave at the skate park and happy in the ocean. You share a legit love for motocross and she points out every motorcycle she sees. Your her shoulders to see the world on and her arms to feel safe in. Because of you she loves Jesus and knows about prayer. Her adventurous soul thrives when you’re around, and she prefers rocks over toys. You have inside jokes that don’t include mom, and as much as I want to jealous I can’t because it’s actually so sweet. Thanks to you we get from point A to B without getting lost or falling asleep at the wheel. Chase, you have created a wonderful foundation for our family and we are so grateful to have you as ours. Your example is genuine, positive, and selfless. Your girlies love you! Thank you for being the best dad! @chaserondo
