In a world where we are given the freedom to operate on our own timelines, the ability to ‘just do something’, can often feel daunting. Especially when that ‘something’ you are waiting to do could take a significant amount of time and effort – like adoption perhaps.
Meet The Ivey’s. Jamie and Aaron Ivey have four children, three of which were adopted. The Ivey’s were inspired by friends who had adopted to do something which caused them to get more information and eventually move forward with the adoption process. “If you feel like you want to adopt, the ‘not sure part’ can be worked out,” Jamie Ivey said. “There are millions of children in this world, and in our country that need families, that feeling inside your heart is not something you created, you should pursue it.”
Great things start with a single step. Watch this video to enter in to the Ivey’s beautiful adoption story and to hear how their children describe “adoption,” “mom” and “dad.” After watching you may even feel like you’ve made some new friends! Through their perspective, we hope you’ll understand how adoption can be a beautiful thing.
