I still wonder why adoption is a foreign concept to some... Why interracial adoptions are pointed out by random people in public or at all?? I pulled a few pictures from TV shows and popular movies that many of us have seen and grew up on even. A birthmother choosing to give her biological child a better life should be revered. A family taking in children to foster or adopt who have no other family or who have had horrible lives should be honored. Why is adoption still such a confusing concept for so many still? It’s simply building a family out of love. 💝 #adoptionisntanewconcept #adoptionislove #buildingafamily #growingourfamilythroughadoption #birthparentsrock #birthmothersareselfless #weareadopting #moviesaboutadoption #tvshowsaboutadoption #iterracialadoption #domesticasoption #adoptingthroughfostercare #domesticasoption #ihonorbirthmothers #orphanannie #anneofgreengables #friendsadoption #greysanatomyadoption #webster #curlysue #punkybrewster #jesuswasadopted #gru #kungfupandaadoption #adoptiveparents #adoptiveparentsinwaiting #instantfamily #openadoptionrocks #extendedadoptivefamily #adoptionstory #familiesdonthavetomatch

Today we had our best scan yet! Due to our hospital not allowing partners in for appointments, T and I booked a private scan at a local ultrasound clinic. This was my first abdominal ultrasound and boy what a game changer! At first little nugget was tucked up and sleeping soundly, but we did see some leg kicking and arm waves for a few moments towards the end. What a trip to have a tiny human inside me! Truly a miracle! ❤️

Психолог Андрес из Бостона, штат Массачусетс (США), рассказывает, какие девушки его привлекают и что он знает о белоруссках. 1. ❓На что обращаешь внимание при первом знакомстве? ⠀ ⠀ Я люблю девушек с хорошими манерами. Я ценю красоту, так что, конечно, красивая девушка всегда привлечёт мое внимание. Но не только это важно. 2. ❓Почему ты можешь почувствовать, что она перестала тебя интересовать? Если она часто ругается и у неё плохие манеры. Если девушка отрыгивает, я больше никогда ее не приглашу. Конечно, если это получается случайно, то ничего страшного. Но некоторые люди делают это «ради прикола». Я такое ненавижу. ⠀ ⠀ 3. ❓На сколько % се📛кс важен для тебя в отношениях? Может ли се.кс на первом свидании испортить твоё отношение к ней? Се.кс очень важен. Мне нравится делать девушке в этом плане приятно. Мое мнение о ней не испортится после сек.са на первом свидании. И да, я могу быть с ней в отношениях после этого. Не считаю, что это плохо. 4. ❓Опиши идеальную девушку «Сладкая» и романтичная. Девушка, которая любит читать, смотреть хорошее кино и танцевать. Которая ходит в спортзал и занимается йогой или чем-то другим, что благоприятно влияет на ее жизнь. Я люблю детей. Хочу, чтобы девушка хотела детей. Я не против, если у неё будут также дети от предыдущих отношений ⠀ ⠀ 5. ❓Должна ли твоя девушка работать или ты готов полностью ее содержать? Моя девушка или жена должна делать то, что ей нравится, а я ее буду поддерживать. 6. ❓Тебе изменяли? Можешь ли простить измену? Я никогда не изменял. Это неприемлемо в отношениях. Я не могу такое простить, расстанусь. Поведение изменщиков не меняется, только становится хуже со временем. ⠀ ⠀ 7. ❓Что ты знаешь о славянских девушках? Славянки очень похожи на латинок привычками и стилем одежды. Я корнями из Перу и многие люди там женаты/замужем за славянами. Тех, что живут в Перу, мы считаем полноценными Перуанцами. У нас очень схожие культуры. 8. ❓Считаешь себя романтиком? Да, я читаю и пишу поэзию, в отношениях стараюсь дать больше ожидаемого. Нравится давать девушке чувствовать себя принцессой. #relationships #dating #datingonline #menandwomen #знакомстваонлайн #знакомства #знакомствасиностранцами #ptvesnna

Today we’re 10 weeks. I still don’t have many symptoms. I get up now 1-2x per night to use the bathroom which never happened before and I’ve had 1-2 cravings for specific things (juicy citrus or fruit,) but other than that I’m over here living my best quarantined life! 🌱 Tomorrow I take my last does of Estrace. I’ve already lowered my Endometrin/Progesterone from 3x daily to 2x daily and I have one more week before it goes to 1x daily! These meds are what got me pregnant and honestly feel like my lifeline. All the posts I’ve read about anxieties of tapering them down are so true. Without them will I stay pregnant? Is my body finally ready to do something right and in it’s own? It’s scary! 🌱 Tomorrow we’re doing an elective scan at an ultrasound-only clinic so that my wife can attend. They’ve tightened up their schedules and only allowing a certain number of people on site at any given time so we’re thankful for extra safety measures. Our OB now has a strict patient-only policy so she won’t be able to attend any visits and this may be the only time she gets to see a scan for a long time. ❤️

Finished up the mountains with a little bit of scrollsaw work. It's been a while (as evidenced by the thick layer of dust on my scrollsaw) but it was a lot of fun to make this. Second photo is how we use whatever we have on hand to build. In this case, an empty pizza box from last night as a stand, plus an empty bottle of champers as a glue up clamp.😂 Brodies room is almost finished! (And yes, bike nerds. Brodie is what we've named him.😊) Transitioning week (actually, just FIVE DAYS!) begins in tuesday!!! . . . #adoptionstory #amateurwoodworker #diyproject #nurserydecor #buildingafamily #makersgonnamake #teamawesomegetsababy

My podcast with @beatinfertility went live last week. But in the wake of everything - I didn’t even get a chance to listen to myself. In the coming days, weeks, months - I would love for you to take a listen and pass along if you think it might be able to help someone you know. I’ll be adding it to my website its-conceivable.com soon too. Thinking of everyone during this particularly difficult time. https://beatinfertility.co/tubal-factor-infertility-rebekah-success/ ❤️💫

Not the clearest, but here’s a photo from our scan yesterday. We’re elated. We’re also very aware of the current medical crisis in the world. We’re opting for less hospital visits for testing, overall, with the guidance of our hospital system. We’ve decided to choose NIPT instead of general CA testing over three visits as it’s non-invasive and less overall visits. ❤️ We’re booked in for a followup Scan, extensive bloodwork, and NIPT for 2 weeks out, at 11 weeks. Because this visit falls during another week of rounding hospital work for T, we have a private scan booked for 10 weeks. If they’re still open during our shelter-in-Place, then we’ll get to go together, otherwise we’ll stick with 11 week scan. ❤️ As mentioned before, this all seems a little out of place. I don’t yet feel pregnant, so scan to scan my anxiety does pick up quite a bit. I’m here for it.

I’ve been uncharacteristically quiet recently. What words are there to comfort, console, calm these days? They have felt few and far between. I know many of you are struggling deeply right now. Lost cycles, lost hope. Unfortunately there is little that can be said to make that feel any better. This too shall pass, but it probably will not be soon. So we do what we can. Take this time. To recenter. Try some new things. Bring back some old. Reconnect. Refocus. Do whatever we can to put one foot in front of the other. I’m wishing you all love and light during this crazy time. There is a light at the end of the tunnel - but for now let’s focus on the ride.

We’re 8+5 today and ever so grateful to still be here. It seems impossible. I feel like an imposter. But it’s truly real. I go to bed every night and place my hand on my belly and honestly pray I’m still pregnant. And every morning I wake up and it seems to be a dream. I will be a mother to this child. I am already a mother to this child. ❤️

If you’ve been following my story for a year or longer you probably noticed that taking on the #role of a #mom wasn’t something that came naturally to me. . I remember sharing my weakest moments a year ago and getting messages like „I pity your child.“ or „Don’t be so full of yourself, others have a much harder time.“ Of course words like these hurt, especially when you feel like you’ve already hit #rockbottom. At the same time I received so much #solidarity, helpful #advice or messages from other women - with or without kids - telling me to hold on. And there was my own mom telling me to get through the first week - month - year and see for myself that things will change for the better. . There was a time when I feared the next day to come. I was overwhelmed. At the same time I knew how lucky I was having a healthy child, an amazing partner and nothing to worry about. But still, I was devastated. These feelings weren’t at all what I had expected becoming a mom. But they were there. They were real. . What changed? It was like my mom said. Some things got easier, others more complicated. But the main point was probably that I slowly grew into the new situation. Now I look forward to every day I got to spend with my boys. There are still many stressful and exhausting hours but there’s also this general happiness which I thought would never return - silly me. . This whole process became quite relevant in the current situation. I‘ve learned to take it day by day. To treasure the most mundane everyday routines. And I try to enjoy the unexpected extra time with my loved ones. . . . #newmom #becomingamom #momdiary #buildingafamily #postpartumdepression #happyfaces #luckyme #cherisheverymoment #timeisprecious #lovelife #mamablogger_de #momblogger_de #eltern #familie #babyboy #baby2018 #dezemberbaby2018 #honestwords #selfgrowth #selflove #beingaparentishard

Oh yeah you definitely should not foster teens they’re the worst... NOT 😉 Had a blast with the sweetest kid today. She’s got a heart of gold and had so much fun with us at pigeon forge! Respite is seriously such a fun blessing for us, getting to know some of the coolest kids (and of course, spoil them rotten 😉). #thisisfostercare
