Is your adoption journey turning out differently than you imagined?

You knew your child had trauma, but you feel in over your head.

You started this process hopeful and enthusiastic, but now you can hardly get out of bed in the morning. 

You thought you were a great parent, but now you feel like a failure.

You wanted to help a child, but they don't seem to want you at all.

Your friends and family were excited at first, but now it seems there's no one to turn to.

You had so much love to give, but now you find it hard to even like your child.

Life feels like it will never be the same.

About your hosts:
Melissa Corkum & Lisa Qualls

Between the two of us, we represent all three parts of the adoption triad and are moms to 18 kids. We've been around the block a couple times with kids by birth, adoption, and foster care. We've lost sight of our compassion and why we even wanted to adopt in the first place.

We've really been there. And lived to tell about it.
