Adoptions stories are pretty amazing and heartwarming.
Here are adoption stories that will warm your heart.
1. “Adoption blessed our family with two adorable children.”
“It was a hot morning in China and a Mother’s Day in the United States. We were on a journey to becoming parents to an adorable child. Finally, the children’s authority representative called out my name, and I nervously walked towards the door. Inside the hot, humid room, I thought it was a dream when I held a tiny adorable baby. The black-haired girl was a smiling machine, and I was so happy when she called me Mama. I had previously seen the girl on a computer screen eight months ago and fallen in love with her.”
“However, the feeling was intense when I held her on my arms. The girl from the faraway land was all I wanted, and she became my best friend. I recall the long time I waited to see the adorable child, but when I got to meet her, every minute of my wait become worth it. She was truly amazing. She stayed with us for six years before she started asking for a sibling. We have no other choice rather than to make another trip to China. We sat in another room waiting for a child; this time, it was a baby boy. Adoption has made us parents to two beautiful children.”
2. “I cried on my way home.”
“It was my first day to meet boys who would later become my sons at the Child Protection Service office. They were three inseparable boys, and you could clearly tell that they were buddies. Moises looked at me with a smile on his face and came towards me. We discussed with the CPS about their schooling and later headed to McDonald’s. Angel gave me a warm hug when I was about to leave. Alex shook my hand and then gave me a warm hug too. I cried on my way home. Three months later, the boys came to live with me.”
3. “For a better part of her life, she thought that he came from the airport.”
“I can recall the four years ago event like yesterday. It was a chilly morning at the airport when we met then five weeks old son with his birth mother. We immediately fell in love with the cute baby. Our then two-and-a-half-year-old daughter thought for the better part of her life that he came from the airport. The two are now 6, and 4 and the joy they have brought to our lives is unmatched.”
4. “When we met the birth mum, she was four months pregnant.”
Our two sons are adopted. My husband and I met our first-born birth mum when she was four months pregnant. We had a strong relationship with her and met regularly when she was pregnant. During delivery, she insisted that we must be in the hospital. We were so amazed, and we didn’t want to let her down. We went to the hospital one day before and sat in the waiting room as she was delivering. Surprisingly, we heard the baby’s cry while we were in the waiting room. His mother came to us and insisted that we should be the first to hold him. It was fantastic.”
5. “We waited five years to adopt”
“We waited patiently for five years to adopt. Numerous heartaches characterized the murky journey. One day I came across a charming photo on the South Korea special needs adoption photo listing and directly knew this was the perfect match for our family. We expressed our need to adopt the child, and a few days later, we received a call from the agency. This time it was a good news call. The agency told us that we were chosen for the child, and he will be brought to O’Hare within a month.”
6. “I prayed for seven years for him; he is finally here.”
We had been foster parents for about a month when we heard that a 2-day old boy needed a home. My husband and I didn’t hesitate to petition for the little boy’s adoption. Some hours later, the caseworker came to us, holding the little creature. I broke down in tears, and my seven years prayers had been answered.”
7. “Seven years later, her awesomeness still amazes us.”
“We kicked off our adoption journey at the back of a public library. Two years later, our desire to adopt a child-led us to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where we finally met her. My husband and I had vowed to save our tears for later, and we managed to do it. The eight months old daughter didn’t cry either. She innocently looked at us may be wondering why we took so long. Seven years later, she is still the best gift in our lives.”
