En ookaan näköjään postaillut tänne melkein kahteen viikkoon! Siinä ajassa on tapahtunut sellaista, että Elsa on lähtenyt kävelemään tukea vasten, oli 1-vuotisneuvolassa 74,6 cm ja 9550 g, sai kolme rokotusta, ja mummi oli täällä pari yötä, että sain ite tehtyä parin espanjan kurssin tentit. Tuloksia odotellessa 😱...Kuva Elsasta meidän kuvaussessiosta lähimetsässä. Elsahan inhoaa metsää ja alkaa välittömästi huutaa sinne mentäessä, siis ihan jollekin lenkkipolulle. Huuto loppuu vasta metsästä poistuttaessa. Tällanen kuitenkin onnistuttiin nappaamaan 💖. #yksivuotias #lovemakesafamily #ivfjourney #lokakuiset2019 #lgbtblogit #sateenkaariblogit #sateenkaariblogi #vauva2019 #samesexparents #rainbowfamily #sateenkaariperhe #sateenkaariperheet #twomums #lgbtqparents #lgbtparents #lgbtqparenting #ivfgotthis #ivfsuccess #lgbtmummies #lgbtfamily #emiliajasateenkaari #twomumfamily #twomomfamily #12monthsold #1yearold

Evermore Adoption Consultants and @lunadesignsco_ are growing and we are so excited to have Alexia join our team. Alexia will be Evermore's, Social Media Specialist and she will be the Writer and Editor for Luna. To say we are thrilled would be an understatement. - WELCOME ALEXIA- Hi! I'm Alexia. I'm a military wife, new twin mom and creative enthusiast who loves storytelling through writing! After years of infertility, my husband and I became parents to twins through the way of adoption. We are former clients of Evermore who offered us wise counsel, listening ears and became like family to us throughout our entire adoption process with the twins. I am thrilled for the opportunity to work alongside Evermore & Luna Design Co. through social media and creating profile books that will best represent our waiting families stories and their heart's. Adoption built my family and is a such a big part of my life. I love connecting with others who feel called to walk this path and cannot wait to play a part in each families experience through their adoption journey. @themurriedlife . . . . . . . . . . . #adoptiongoals #waitingtoadopt #waitingfamily #adoptionfacts #adoptioneducation #loveadoption #adoptionfunding #adoptionjourney #adoptionishard #adoptionisrad #adoptivefamily #adoptionislove #hopefuladoptiveparents #lovemakesafamily #hopingtoadopt #newbornadoption #shareourstory #evermore #adoptionconsultant #evermoreac #adoptionfundraising #domesticadoption #hopefuladoptivefamily #semiopenadoption #fundingouradoption #chosen #matched #chosenfamily #adoptionfunding #birthmothersupport

"I fell in love immediately. As I did with my previous kids that I fostered, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. And with my son, it was no different. After each of my kids were reunified with their biological family, I often wondered if I was capable of loving again and with the same magnitude? And with each child that I fostered, I learned that I was."❤️✨ Steven is a single dad through fostering and adoption. He lives in Los Angeles and worked with @extraordinaryfamilies to foster three times before finalizing the adoption of his fourth placement. (You can read his story by clicking the link in our bio. )👨‍👦🏳️‍🌈 “Extraordinary Families is amazing.💖 The organic way that they get to know their families, myself included, is remarkable. I have fostered four kids through EF. And as the first three were reunified with their bio family, I always knew that I could call them to cry, vent, talk, etc. They go above and beyond when it comes to supporting their resource parents."🙌 Steven’s message to future single dads on choosing foster-adopt, “I would do it again in a heartbeat.” However, he does want folks to understand that the number one goal of fostering is to reunify that child with the birth family, and the process can hurt. It can hurt a lot. But Steven believes his journey had a purpose. “Those three glorious babies I had were preparing me for my son.” When talking about his son, Steven completely lights up. “He is a ray of light. And being able to witness that sheer joy and innocence everyday is priceless."🥰💫

lavender orange play dough ✨ what ya need // 2 cups flour 1 cup salt 2 tsp cream of tarter 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cup cold water lavender + orange essential oil (or whatever oils you’d like to add!! ) I only recommend using oils from young living bc some oils out there have fillers and fragrance and aren’t really safe!! food coloring optional (I didn’t use ) how to // add flour, salt, cream of tarter, oil, and water in large sauce pan stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until it’s reached desired play dough consistency remove from sauce pan and place into a bowl to cool once cooled, knead in essential oils and food coloring if using I used 2 drops lavender + 2 drops orange

We at Hachiko Pet Club strongly encourage Adoption, because all are god’s creation then why so much discrimination. Overburdened shelters take in millions of stray, abused, and lost animals every year, and by adopting an animal, you're making room for others. Not only you are giving more animals a second chance, but the cost of your adoption goes directly towards helping those shelters better care for the animals they take in! #adoption #adoptdontshop #adopt #adoptionjourney #dog #adoptionislove #dogsofinstagram #love #rescue #family #cats #adoptionrocks #dogs #fostercare #openadoption #catsofinstagram #cat #rescuedog #adoptionstory #hopingtoadopt #adoptme #foster #infantadoption #birthmom #puppy #pets #adoptiveparents #kittens #lovemakesafamily #bhfyp Let's Help Them!

Ten random things about me. Thanks @marydemuth for the challenge! #10randomthings ⁠ ⁠ 1. I studied classical Arabic for two years and can chat pretty well in the Tunisian dialect about anything to do with food or family!⁠ ⁠ 2. The heel can never be high enough, and I am so thankful that even in my highest heels, my husband Vincent is still always taller than me!⁠ ⁠ 3. I am the classic hoarder, I never ever throw anything away.... just in case...much to the despair of my family who are constantly trying to get me to clear out all my clutter!⁠ ⁠ ⁠ 4. I can sleep soundly ANYWHERE and I have often spent extended periods sleeping on the floor while visiting friends/family in North Africa !⁠ ⁠ 5. I am a long-term foster mom to three teens.⁠ ⁠ 6. It has to be RED lipstick⁠. Obviously.⁠ ⁠ 7. I work out nearly every day, it definitely keeps me a bit less crazy! My favorite things are running up hills with Vincent and Pilates with @pierre_alain_maire ⁠ ⁠ 8. I am completely obsessed with the unique, creative and super original perfume creations of the NYC fragrance brand @thezoonyc by the perfumery genius, maverick & magician, @christophelaudamiel ⁠ ⁠ 9. I am also completely obsessed with my magical garden and all of the beautiful flowers and citrus and plants and fruits and trees that are growing in it. It's an endless source of joy and inspiration in my life⁠.⁠ ⁠ 10. I believe that cultivating a spirit thankfulness for EVERYTHING begins as a discipline and a choice, but with time becomes a natural way of being and seeing the world. The world would be different place if we taught each other to be thankful instead of anxious!⁠ ⁠ I'm tagging ⁠ @minalea23@scentifolia@lynne_komo@dominique_glanville@muse_experiences@avivastanoffdesign@stephanieshaull@lifecoachdiane@robifairbanks@katherine_kirchner@vireo_perfumes@nosey_couture@natlovemoon ⁠ because I'm curious what their random facts would be. Feel free to share yours as well! Tag me because I want to see!⁠

Yes 👏🏼 You 👏🏼 Can 👏🏼 I remember the first PIO shot I had to do like it was yesterday. My hubs was ready to do this thing as my nurse and I burst into tears. First of all, I don’t know how they trust people to do this shit at home. The needle is HUGE and you’re jamming it in basically in my derrière. So, there we were, laying on the couch and he was ready. But, I wasn’t. At all. I started panicking and hyperventilating knowing this death wand he held was about to stab me. I will never forget him looking at me and saying, “Do you want to have a baby? Because if you do, you have to do this.” It wasn’t the warm and fuzzy way I was hoping for in this situation, but it snapped me out of it and we did it. And we kept doing those shots for weeks on end. You are a badass and you can do big, scary things.

FEATURE FRIDAY Hey y’all! I’m Abby, the one on the right (your right ) from @abbysrollercoasterlife and this is my family! We are from the United States and currently live in Wyoming. My wife Jamie and I have been married since August 2014 and have two amazing children and three pups. We also both serve in our country’s military. . Our oldest daughter Maiyah, age 9, was conceived via a relationship I had with a man. While he’s not in our life Jamie has been since she was 18 months old and is the only other parent Maiyah has ever known. Our youngest daughter Jamison, age 4, was conceived through RIVF. We used Jamie’s egg, donor sperm, and I carried. . I love to share about my family and our life together. I can’t fully express the importance of visibility. Of having families like mine, and yours, using this platform to help normalize Queer families is so vital! . So in our free time you’ll find us hiking, camping, snowboarding, or hanging out in our backyard with a fire. Hope to see your faces in my space and if you’re in the US don’t forget to VOTE!

"Parenthood itself is the wildest ride you could ever imagine. For some, the process to even become parents is just as crazy. My husband and I adopted all three of our children and brought them home from the hospital." "The journey to become parents can be brutal. Trying to learn the ropes in a few months can cause anyone to freak out. Add to that all of the paperwork, home studies, certifications, background checks on top of getting the baby’s nursery created is just about maddening." Stop. Take a breath. Erik is here to help! He's outlined his three major tips that he learned through his three adoption journeys! Click the link in bio to find out what they are. 🥰🙌✨ You got this!!

In the most beautiful and unique way God has reminded us that throughout all 9 years of waiting, each “not yet” and every loss he had never forgotten us and He has been working all along. ✨ We are excited to announce that we have been matched with an amazingly brave expectant mother and her baby girl, due this upcoming December 1st! In case you are counting that is 6 weeks from now 😳 ✨ We cannot share many details, but we are cautiously optimistic and so very grateful for the opportunity no matter where it may lead. ✨ Things are moving so quickly (we don’t even have a car seat🤣 ) and we are trusting everything will work out just as it should. We would appreciate your thoughts and prayers for this precious baby, for this baby girl’s incredible momma & family and for Charlie & myself. Also, if you could send positive vibes to little miss Delta - she did not understand why she couldn’t have this bunny...or the bows...or the sock 🐶 ✨Thank you so much✨

Happy one month, Little Love❤️ Our time with him has been such a sweet and unexpected blessing. We thought we would have him in our care for a few weeks, but looks like he could be with us a few months. With foster care you just never know, but we are going to savor our time with him. He has already captured our hearts. And please notice how he is holding onto my thumb😭❤️
