Adoption CAN be amazing. Yes, I know that it isn't for every situation, but it can be open, raw, loving, kind, considerate, healing and so much more. It is not a one size fits all.

A Conversation with Heather Avis about her family, her book and the beautiful chaos of adoption
"We just sat there and watched this family love on this child who they feel very much connected to because it is their child. It is their granddaughter. It is their cousin. It is their niece. It is their daughter. We recognized that something really special is happening that we got to be a part of."

Zachary | A birth father from Georgia
Realizing that I wouldn’t be able to provide for her in the way I felt my daughter deserved was ultimately what led to my decision to adopt. I talked to my parents about it, and they agreed that it would be difficult with me being in the military and raising her on my own. I didn’t think that it would be fair to my daughter to struggle, and I didn’t want to leave her without her father if I had been deployed, and something would have happened to me.
