Words of Wisdom

We have many families who share their adoption journeys with us. It is always so much fun for us to follow our families on their blogs as they travel to China and experience their Gotcha Days, and watch the children and families when they first meet. Sometimes our families share their wisdom along the way and we wanted to share with you one family’s thoughts. They adopted an older child and she was a little sad at first, but is doing very well now. When they mailed in their last post placement report they shared the following advice:

“Never give up: try, try and try again. Use all the love that you have and smile a lot no matter what. Do not lose your sense of humor and patience. Try to walk in their shoes and try to keep something that is familiar for them, so they will feel less scared and alone.”
