Say This, Not That

Six alternative things to say when talking to adoptive parents about their children and adoption.

I love a website called “Eat This, Not That,” which gives you alternative choices of foods to eat when faced with something unhealthy or high in calories. I thought this was a good idea not only for food, but for things to say to adoptive parents.

Kira became a mother through adoption twice and once through a high-risk pregnancy. She and her husband opened their hearts to open adoption five years ago and now enjoy a beautiful relationship with their children's birth mothers, who are best friends, and their son's birth father. She has served as a co-chair for a chapter of Families Supporting Adoption, and enjoys doing adoption presentations for schools in her community. When she isn't changing poopy diapers and making mac n cheese, she spends her time teaching dance, attempting to exercise, and spending time with her husband, Mike. Instagram ID: Kiralm
