Adopting from Foster Care: Our Adoption Day Story

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman December 16, 2014

One adoptive mother shares her family’s experience of their first adoption through foster care. In the beginning, the family thought this would be a quick adoption. They were told that the boy was adoptable and that there was no more hope for reunification for him, so they were shocked and stressed through the entire process of on-again, off-again hopeful adoption.

The family was able to complete their tumultuous journey on Adoption Day two years ago. For more from this beautiful family, visit their website:
