To celebrate Father's Day, we're sharing the story of a very special father from a beautiful family: The Brandt Family. After receiving the news that they had been chosen to be the parents to a little boy, Joel Brandt began to experience an anxiety that is common amongst new adoptive parents: “what if I don't love this child like I would my own biological child?” But on the day of the birth, all of Joel's fears and anxieties melted away the moment he laid eyes on baby Tucker—he was immediately overwhelmed with the powerful, all-consuming love of a father for his son.
"My perspective on life has totally changed. Becoming a dad was the best thing to happen to me. This little guy just brings so much..."

“Today I am thankful to be living outside the box. To be a part of breaking the mold that is how one gets to motherhood. To raise a child that has none of my blood but all of my love. To have a child whose joy is my sole purpose. And to soon multiply that joy by two. 
My womb may be empty but my heart has never been more full. & for that, Jesus; I thank you."

Dear Future Adoptive Moms,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What you thought you believed about adoption, what you swore you believed about adoption, what you were unwavering on when it came to adoption...........it's all about to change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And when it changes, it will be this force that crept into your psyche, seemingly overnight, and it will feel like it's always been this way, like what you believe now is what you were so rock solid on before, even though, it's in fact, just the opposite. You'll deny that you ever thought about your adoption criteria, about the process, the idea that open adoption was scary, risky, strange, politically correct, or for someone else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You'll be irritated at others when they express doubt about what you're doing, how you're doing it, why your mindset is changing, and why they can't just 'get there' with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You'll start to feel like anything else would be unnatural, like writing with the opposite hand, driving on the other side of the road, or sleeping on a different side of the bed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you start the adoption process it will feel like your criteria and open adoption is chasing you, threatening to defeat your will, about to overtake you, sucking up your determination about the process and then...........when it catches you........
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You'll realize that it was never trying to beat you. It was trying to catch up with you. It wants to help you maneuver through the rest of the race, give you a purpose for continuing to work hard and win, and to help you see adoption in its most pure, loving, and sacrificial light. It will make you a champion for the case you thought you would never accept.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It will make you an adoption nut. You'll want to wear a pro-adoption sandwich board wherever you go so that people know to ask you about adoption so that you can tell them how it changed so many lives and how it will expand your family in more ways than simply giving you this amazing gift to raise and love beyond words.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Those two excited faces had just become active and were on a babymoon celebrating all the paperwork finally being done. If I could go back I would tell myself to manage my expectations about adoption so much better. I could have saved myself so many ruined holidays and heartache. I am a planner and it has been so hard for me to learn to let go, but with letting go of expectations of time frames and trying to let go of the expectations others as to how I should be handling things, my expectations of comparing us to other families that were matching or even what my thoughts were about the birth moms who were seeing our profiles expectations of us. While it was our responsibility to manage our expectations that magic "our average placement is 4 months" made telling myself this is the last Christmas or by our big family vacation, a little one will be joining us so much easier. I can honestly say I didn't think it would only be 4 months, I knew that was the average but after 6 months and as time frames came and went it started to hurt. When we interviewed the consultant agency, we were told they worked with 25 active families at a time. So, when multiple occasions came and went with posts that said we had 20 people placed this month or this is our 10 match this week- our hearts would break. How could yet again half or almost all of their families place and here we are still waiting- WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? Come to find out that 25 number was so far from accurate and while yes I know many of people that placed very quickly- there were more families just like us than we were ever lead to believe still waiting. When on occasions when it would come down to us and another family and we would get to have a phone call with the birth mom and then two days later see a post that the family that matched had been active 4 days and here we were 8 months into our wait- our hearts would break at the same time of sharing joy for them.

So, this is actually a post I wrote back in November- but in lieu of this week, I thought I would re-share. ASK FOR HELP. For some, this may have been a well duh, silly. For me this was huge. I don't just like to not ask for help, I don't. I tell everyone I am fine and think I can carry the weight of the world on my own and handle everything. I take care of everyone else before me, even if it is at my hearts own expense. It wasn't until it was too late, that I learned that I am not invincible and there is such a thing as a breaking point. This process is hard, without the added heartache of failed adoptions and huge losses before you start, but I was working under the thought that if I couldn't handle everything that was going on or I let someone in to know I wasn't ok - well it would jeopardize our adoption. You see when you adopt, you are constantly being "sized up", watched, evaluated to see if you will be "fit" parents. I will spare you the details, but what I have learned is let those that love you help. Whether is it a listening ear, coffee, tacos delivered to your door, deep conversation or just someone to sit with you when you cry. It is ok to not be fine. It is ok to ask for help. It is ok to seek professional help. It is ok to accept help. And not to assume just because someone has a smile and seems ok- that they are. Don't expect someone to come to you, no matter how close you are. Don't assume someone will just reach out if they aren't ok. Depression, anxiety, postpartum, deep grief they are real and debilitating. Don't just have an "open door" policies and expect someone hurting to just walk through it, have a show-up and be there even if they don't ask for it policy. I also learned a similar lesson in my faith. I held this belief that I couldn't be angry and I couldn't ask why or for the help I needed. I felt like if I did, I somehow was not being strong enough in my faith.

We can't stop watching the beautiful interview that #SandraBullock gave to the @todayshow about the decision to grow her family through adoption. "It's just like being a mom, I finally realize, 'Oh, this is what I was supposed to do when I grew up. Not be an actress; to be a mom. ...This is my purpose."

After our second failed adoption we were met with a lot of questions. "How can you still want to pursue adoption after all the loss", "What about a surrogate", "Your body has had time to recover, have you talked to the doctor about being pregnant again?", "How can you trust another birth mom after having two take the baby back?" "What about your heart, I don't think you can handle more". I have heard all these statements and more from very well-meaning people that were just trying to protect us from further hurt and loss. So, the thought of sharing the financial losses we took in those failed adoptions seemed crazy. I mean sometimes I think we are crazy. Adoption is expensive without experiencing failed adoptions. Trust me there have been many times where we have set on our sofa, discussing if it is even financially responsible to try again. There have been many cases where we saw that 10k at risk listed and had to walk away. The fear of losing more of our life savings, the fear of not being able to adopt if we lost more has dedicated many of our decisions. I am not proud to admit that we haven't always had the trust and faith that we should and have let fear rule. But it is hard when you loss $27,000 and are still looking at adoption bills to come and the possibility of never seeing that "at risk" money again should another fail occur. Then there are times we feel absolutely silly for not remembering to trust that God is in the details and that He will provide. This spring I applied for a grant, in all honesty, I never expected to be the recipients of. So much so, I never even told Chris I had applied for it. You see after our second failed adoption we asked our consultant agency if we could apply to be one of their families to receive help from the fundraising efforts that they do to assist families that have experienced a failed adoption. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When we started the adoption process there were so many decisions we had to make, gender if any, race if it mattered, amount of drug and alcohol exposer we were willing to accept, level of openness with the birth mother, what our budget was and so much more. Even though we started out with an agreed upon criteria (which still make me cringe a little... I mean this is a baby we are talking about), to say we agreed upon whether to present or not to every case that came through would be a big fat lie. WE HAVEN’T. But we have the rule that if either of us have reservations about a case then we don’t present. We both have to be on board, but we are each allowed to present our feelings on the situation and the other has to listen. Sometimes one of us will change our mind and sometimes we don’t. But we have to listen and be respectful of each other's feelings toward the case. I am not saying there aren’t cases that I didn't cry over because we didn't present. Though most of the time it wasn't because we didn't present- it was out of heartbreak for the birth mom and the baby she was carrying and the details I had just read. You see more often than not, Chris would be correct it wasn't a right fit for us- but emotionally it would just pull at my heartstrings. We make a good team this way, him with the logic and me with the emotional. And then there are the no's. When we got a no, it taught us to lean on one another like never before. As our hearts have crumbled more and more with each one and as the wait has gotten longer and longer, we cling to the need for each other more and more. Then came our failed adoptions- if you can't tell yet... I work through my thoughts and emotion through words. It took lots of listening and lots of leaning on one another during those days and even now. While it hasn't always made our relationship easy, it had grown us as individuals and as a couple, it has strengthened us, it has shown us some of our highest moments together and lowest, and it has shown us what the power of love can get you through.

We both have to be on board, but we are each allowed to present our feelings on the situation and the other has to listen. Sometimes one of us will change our mind and sometimes we don’t. But we have to listen and be respectful of each other's feelings toward the case. I am not saying there aren’t cases that I didn't cry over because we didn't present. Though most of the time it wasn't because we didn't present- it was out of heartbreak for the birth mom and the baby she was carrying and the details I had just read. You see more often than not, Chris would be correct it wasn't a right fit for us- but emotionally it would just pull at my heartstrings. We make a good team this way, him with the logic and me with the emotional. And then there are the no's. When we got a no, it taught us to lean on one another like never before. As our hearts have crumbled more and more with each one and as the wait has gotten longer and longer, we cling to the need for each other more and more. Then came our failed adoptions- if you can't tell yet... I work through my thoughts and emotion through words. It took lots of listening and lots of leaning on one another during those days and even now. While it hasn't always made our relationship easy, it had grown us as individuals and as a couple, it has strengthened us, it has shown us some of our highest moments together and lowest, and it has shown us what the power of love can get you through. - 18 days ago

One of the exercises we had to do for our adoption was write a letter to our future child with our hopes for him/ her. So here is part of it. I hope that you know you are beautiful simply because you are you and God made you. You have a body that moves and is healthy and will grow. It will crawl, and walk, and run and it is a thing of wonder. I hope that I can instill in you that the prettiest of mouths will be the ones with a smile that spreads a kind word to everyone, that the most beautiful eyes are ones that sparkle when they look at sunsets and paintings and not at the reflection in the mirror and that the most graceful hands are the ones who know how to comfort and give service. Know that nothing will make you lovelier than being kind, virtuous, generous, and good.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope that you know how to be silly, be creative and play. The world will ask you to grow up all too soon. Try to resist. Be a child for as long as you possibly can. Know that it is okay to draw pictures where the trees are purple and the cows have wings. Turn our backyard into a busy bakery that sells nothing but the most decadent mud pies. The space under the kitchen table makes the best fort and is the perfect hideout from the pirates who live in the bathroom. Let's play together and not on a smartphone, or a tablet, or with video games, but with homemade hats on our heads, and cardboard swords. Let's swing from trees and rock our dolls to sleep. Use your imagination and never stop being creative.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you Read, Read, Read and not just because your mom is an English major and it would make me super happy. Let books be your best friends. There is no place in the world off-limits when you pick up a book. In books, you can find people you never meet and have some of your most exciting adventures. I hope you know you can be and do anything. You are your own unique person. There is nobody else like you in the entire world.

“For the first time in my life I have the last name of someone who loves me
I’ve prayed for this my whole life
I finally have a family ‘everything you’ve ever wanted is right in front of you and you see the impossible coming true’ Officially a Romero!!! HERE’S TO ADOPTION!!!” | Words + photo by @sierrakromero 
Today, after growing up in foster care her whole life, Sierra was adopted by a family who opened their home and hearts to her when she was in high school. Now, she is in her last year of school at AMDA in Los Angeles and an official member of the Romero family! A huge congratulations to Sierra and the rest of the Romero family on this life-changing day!

98 that is the number of Birth Mom names in this notebook and the number of no’s we have received. I never set out to memorize them, but I could repeat their names, the date we presented, their approximate due date and the gender of the baby if it was known as if you were going to quiz me on the state capitals. I have repeated these names every morning during my study and ever night in my bedtime prayers, some for over three years. While each of these birth moms didn’t choose us, I learned very early on that I could let another “no” devastate me or I could find purpose in why we felt called to present. I like to tell myself that God placed that particular birth mom in our path because she needed extra prayers. It’s hard to not become attached to these women. Often times we receive photos of them, we learn their likes and dislikes, we hear about their hard life stories that sometimes could make a Lifetime movie seem like a fairytale. Your heart just goes out to them and you hope that God can help heal the brokenness they feel. We don’t get updates after we aren’t chosen, so I never know if the birth moms choose to parent or picked another oh so deserving adoptive family. So, I pray. I pray for each by name and her baby and the family if she chose one. These 98 women have each touched my life in their own way and I am grateful for the lessons they have taught me.

When someone asks me how many children I have, my answer depends on my mood, how much time I have, and how well I want to get to know the person asking. I usually just tell them the easy answer, but sometimes that feels like something between denial and betrayal. They are no less our babies even if they live only in our hearts and all that we have left here on earth are memories and a few pictures.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Losing a child is unthinkable. It's not something that people like to talk about, so they usually don't. I am always amazed at how the world just goes on as though nothing had happened and the extent to which I would go out of my way to pretend everything was fine. My life was far from fine. The death of my babies changed my life in ways I never could have imagined. The lessons weren't easy ones to learn and took a while to see, but I had to take what I could get from their short lives and time here with us.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Through this, I learned that I am a much stronger woman than I ever could have imagined. In my younger days, I had dealt with pain in less than healthy ways - denial, rage, or over-indulgence. This time, I had to find another way. I knew that the only way that the world would remember them was through me. If I became a bitter, angry, then that would be their legacy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People would look at my life and think "She was fine until she had those babies that passed." Whatever negativity followed would be blamed on them. I could not do that to them. Their lives were created in love, and I wanted their memory to be as well. I had to work through this and find hope.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess I may have taken it for granted at one time, but now I understand that motherhood is a sacred and special club that any member is blessed to join. I realize what a gift a child truly is. My priorities shifted, and I realized that things that may have warranted anger or tears in the past really were not that important at all. In the end, the only things that really matter are the people you love.

“When we began dating almost 10 years ago, we talked about a big family that included adoption. Chris jokes that I am lucky I did scare him away when on our 4th date, I just randomly blurted out "Hey, would you ever be open to adopting?" The timing hasn’t been what we expected, but it was something that we have always felt a calling towards, way before I ever knew what we would encounter during our journey. In the spring of 2014, we found out we were pregnant.

Every year over 2.2 billion cups of coffee are consumed globally. 64% of Americans drink at least 1 cup of coffee a day. Yearly, that equates to about 6 billion dollars. Our goal is to further families through coffee. We want to leverage as many of the coffee drinkers as we can to help provide a family for every child. The most prominent thing holding families back from adoption is the cost. This is why we have decided to partner with @adopttogether --a non-profit with a mission to provide an easy way for families to raise money for adoption. #furtheringfamiliesthroughcoffee

“Like ARROWS in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them...” 🏹🤲🏼🤱🏻💘 - Psalm 127:4-5
.
March 2018 - Our #AdoptionJourney has been a long & emotional one ... Sometimes I wonder why God placed this desire on our ❤️ when it wasn’t hard the old-fashioned way — We have 2 beautiful, “very planned” boys to show for it. 😍 Now, almost 3 years after beginning the adoption process (Our 2nd wasn’t even a year old when we started), all we have to show for it are 2 “failed adoptions” that happened within the span of less than 3 months. As I watch friends have more babies, I can’t help but think we could’ve had a toddler by now if we had gone the conventional route again. BUT then I remind myself that our desire to adopt is so much more than having another child. 🙏🏼 MY 💔 IS RAW. It’s been less than 4 months since we’ve essentially “lost” 2 babies... for 1) we rejoice that a tiny 👶🏽 girl made a young woman into a mother; but for the other 2) we mourn, as a precious 👼🏼 boy never got a chance to live this life. 😭 AND NOW, WE CONTINUE TO WAIT... #KEEPINGITREAL
.
We recently returned home from an amazing Cabo vacation with friends; a rejuvenating time in our happy place... ☀️🏖🌊👣 I’ll admit, I fully ESCAPED, for 9 glorious days. I didn’t want to come home. I didn’t want to face my 💔... Then, an adoptive mama I’ve connected with from our agency, @qfadoptions, had a 🎁 delivered to me. INSIDE, I FOUND THIS 🏹 NECKLACE & the ☕️📔🍵 in the box, in one of my favorite colors...🌷Dark Blush Pink! It didn’t take away my pain, but it did REFOCUS my ❤️. Jesus has called us to adopt... a calling that remains, despite the sorrow. Thru it, He’s given me courage, patience, empathy, vulnerability, a deep desire to walk with women thru a time they never imagined they’d be in, to rejoice with others in the midst of my pain, to comfort others in their pain, to let others grieve with me — but most importantly to rely first on Him. For all this wisdom, I’m GRATEFUL... as we HOPE & WAIT. #LifeIsHard 💔 #JesusHeals 🙏🏼 #ItTakesAVillage 💗

"My most favorite thing about Amira is her tender heart. She is always concerned if someone is sad or hurting. I also love that she is so joyful. Amira loves life and is always ready for an adventure. She is also the best comedian- she makes me laugh all the time. She is a most beautiful daughter!" | words + photo by @shelleyross1700

"We were looking at babies, one after another, all with an extra 21st chromosome. Each so very precious. Then I’m not sure what happened - everything faded out of existence and I experienced a feeling I can only describe as a 'lightning bolt' feeling. We were looking at the most beautiful face of a tiny child. A little girl we just knew was our daughter. This was her!" | Words + photo by @chosenforjoy

"As a parent, I've realized the importance of diving into my kids' interests. They love Legos, Star Wars, and Ninja Turtles. I've learned more names for Star Wars characters than I ever dreamed and built more Lego vehicles than I might prefer. My boys are so loud and wild, but those sweet moments make my heart sing." | Words + photo by @natalie_e_seitz
