Send me your questions

I often get emails asking questions about our adoption. I figured it would be helpful to post a little Q AND A here on the blog. So, send me questions you may have been thinking. From how did we decided to adopt to picking an agency or a country. Maybe you have questions about older children for adoption or siblings. Wonder if we would do it again? Or maybe what the biggest challenge is? Ask away...I will make a post in the next few days.

If you'd like your question to be anonymous...just let me know and I won't post your name. All comments come to my email before I post anything.



  1. I think you can see the theme here in my questions. Thanks for this; I hope many write in and if not, I just might write back. =)

    Were your girls on board from day one, or was there reservation/jealousy/fear about how their life would be "shared" with two more siblings.

    Now that you have had your boys for 5 months (seems to have gone by so fast!!), what has the adjustment been like for your girls?

    What is it like to "start over" with a baby and toddler while having older, self-sufficient girls too.

  2. I don't have any questions, but I think this is a great idea, and I'm looking forward to your answer post.

  3. What are some books to read about adoption that you would recomend?

  4. How did/are you handling the language barrier with having an older child? Any tips on what works best to communiate with your children?

  5. Cris- I was wondering about how the process of learning English is going for your boys? How are you teaching them? Is it difficult to communicate?? Did they learn any English in Africa?
    Our little guy will be 2 in Sept-- hoping to have him home by his bday!

  6. How did you decide to do two at once?? How has the sibling relationship made the process easier/harder for you & the family?
