On today's episode we are joined with adoptive mother, Andi Lambert.
Andi and her husband Rob Lambert of Rob Lambert Films adopted their beautiful daughter two years ago and are a beautiful example of loving their daughter's birth mother well. They navigate an amazing open adoption.
But Andi didn't always have a mindset of open adoption. Starting the adoption process can be so overwhelming and there are so many questions. She shares her search through social media accounts and google to then finding Faithful Adoption Consultants (FAC). They were able to answer all of their questions, be a safe place for them to process all the unknown and then in the long run becoming a key piece for their adoption journey.
This is a must watch for any hopeful adoptive couple. Andi shares how their heart was turned to open adoption, how she became a part of the biological family..not the other way around and with great humility shares her fears of navigating open adoption.
FROM THE HOST:
I adore Andi and her husband. She is an amazing example of a mother that loves her child and honors deeply her story, which includes her biological family. She sets an incredible example of love and service. She connects deeply at the heart of people and their family is a powerful love story.
I am so thankful to her for her honesty and willingness to be vulnerable to the fact that she was fearful of open adoption, that she was uneducated and turned off by the conversation. What I love about her the most? She was willing to put her own thoughts aside, was willing to open her heart to listen, to pray with her husband and to take the time to understand. She went from a closed adoption mindset to an open adoption heart. I look up to her more than she will every know. She is an incredible example and I am honored to call the Lambert's my friends.
