About Me

This Blog is written by an adoptive parent raising two young children from foster care adoption in Canada.

I will be blogging about the highs and lows of raising two high needs kids, adoption, foster care, FASD, the importance of attachment.

Focusing on strategies to help those raising kids who may be FASD. It may even help you decide whether that road is for you…or not.

I will be blogging my thoughts and strategies as I go and welcome comments and feedback. I believe you are the expert on your kid.

      I read your posts on your blog and was very inspired. It reminded me of a day when my husband and I asked ourselves those very same questions. It has inspired me to write more about my thoughts in the beginning of our journey and share a bit of that with everyone. You are not alone. Others have had a higher calling like you. We too had a feeling that we were meant to do something more meaningful as parents. Our journey is just beginning but it too feels right to us. Follow your intuition, it won’t steer you wrong.

    I was excited to find your blog. My husband and I also live in Alberta and are just about to do our home study to be eligible to adopt from the foster care system. We are also considering the resource family program, if you’re familiar with that one. It’s great to hear from someone a little further along in the process.

      Yes, I am familiar with the Resource Family program, it is only in one place as it is a pilot program. So we are definitely from the same area. I did attend the orientation for it, but we decided it wasn’t for us. We were waiting a long time for our adoptive placement and so were feeling desperate. We had even taken a foster care placement hoping he was a “keeper”. It didn’t turn out, and as it happened our baby boy came through soon after. If you are not licensed foster parents waiting too long to adopt, it may be a short cut into a foster care placement. It is very risky however. It takes you off of the “waiting list” for adoption and you may or may not get to adopt that Resource child. It really depends if its right for your family.
