Do you know the saying, “Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.”? With our home study under way, we are inching closer and closer to the end of our adoption journey. It has been a journey of nearly 4 years so far. There have been trials and celebration and waiting and wondering and continually pushing forward. By the end of our journey,when we finally hold our baby safely in our arms, I can imagine some of the slogans our family could wear. In fact, I already have a “Worth the Wait” onesie stashed away for our little one.
Until then, I have designed a t-shirt for us now. The slogan is: Love makes a family. It’s a simple statement that speaks our entire story.
Through my husband and I meeting, getting married, having our son and adopting our second child, our family has had quite the journey. We have mourned through failed fertility treatments and celebrated moving from our home town to start our own adventures.
As our family is moving through the homes study, we are looking forward to the next steps: waiting list and then getting matched. Getting matched with an expectant mother is a monumental event in the adoption process. It means that a mom has chosen us, and that our family will parent her baby.
To celebrate moving forward to the home study, we are selling the t-shirts that I designed. They have our story on it: Love makes a family. This is not only our story, but yours as well. Whether you don’t have any children or have a houseful, whether your children are biological, foster, adopted or a mixture of all three, love makes your family. Our families haven’t been there or done that. We are going there and we’re doing that. We might as well have a cute tee for the road.

Please note: All proceeds from the shirts will go to agency and legal fees that are coming up during the adoption process.
