‘There’s no way I’d give them my expensive lunch meat. I’m going to buy Jif for when they come over.’: Woman ‘horrified’ by the conversation she overheard in Starbucks

“I was horrified. This woman in her Lululemons, drinking her expensive Starbucks latte was complaining about feeding children?! Then she went on to say that she wants to teach a kindness class in her daughter’s class. Which I found even more confusing. I was that neighborhood kid. I relied on my neighbors to help me because my parents (who worked hard and are wonderful) sometimes couldn’t.”

‘These boys are safe, loved and above all, ours forever. We stood in front of the judge. ‘Adoption granted.’ At that moment, all the weight fell away.’: Adoptive mom knew ‘something was missing,’ says ‘faith, infertility’ were not factors

“Older children adoptions are said to have a ‘honeymoon period.’ That wonderful time where everyone is on their best behavior and all is right in the world. Ours lasted about 3 days. People have told me how lucky my boys are to have found us. I tell them they have it backwards. It’s ME who is the lucky one.”
