On today's episode we are so happy to have a light, short and sweet episode sharing some adoption facts from two kids that are in the throws every day!
Tyler Ann and Oliver Grace are the children of host Ashley Mitchell. She placed her first born , Derek, for adoption almost 12 years ago.
We know that navigating open adoption with other biological children can be hard and we always want to make sure we are keeping the concept "age appropriate". We are giddy about sharing this sweet episode about adoption and what it means to children.
FROM THE HOST:
I am so excited to have my sweet babies on the show today!! It has been the most humbling experiences watching all three of my children together. I was so afraid that it was going to be too much, that they weren't going to understand, that they were going to hurt....but ALL of my children have taught me something so amazing...they are stronger than we give them credit for. They understand more that maybe we do, and they LOVE so freely.
I think in adoption we use the children as an excuse to keep up our walls, to keep our distance and to keep our hearts protected. But we are missing so much love, so much hope, so much FAMILY.
I am not perfect and don't always know what I am doing but I do love our conversations about adoption, I love that they are teaching me and that they LOVE their brother, Derek, even if he is not with us!
