Family and Adoption

I returned from Toronto just couple of hours ago ;).

I was browsing the blogsphere when I came across the Ground Swell's blog. This lovely family is in the process of adopting a child from Ghana, my home country :). They want to build up their family by helping another child that needs parental love. I am so happy for the little boy who will come to join them when the time is right. You can watch a video of their adoption journey here. To raise funds they are selling these lovely kids' t-shits.
AMI and I have talked about adopting or fostering a child one day - this is in our family. However, we know that adopting is a long and ardous process. But one day we will try. For now, what I can do is to help those who want to do it. So, I donated something to help towards the funds.

It is also sweet to know that the parents are teaching their kids the lesson of helping others. Because being able to help is the greatest fulfullment. I hope one day my kids will learn this precious lesson.

Hope you can stop by and share some love :).

Sharing love,
lifeofTOI

  3. Thanks for the link- I'll be looking forward to checking it out. My husband has an older adopted brother and a younger adopted sister. So adoption is very close to my heart.

  7. I think Gadget Guy and I will probably foster or adopt in the future. It will probably be when The Boy is a lot older though.

  8. Adopting can be quite pricey. I'd love to do something like that but I'm not sure I'd be very good at motherhood in general. I see that every other weekend when we have my stepdaughter. Motherhood is a gift...and I just don't have it.
