This week we would like to highlight a post from No Bohns About It with simple advice for adoptive families:
While doing hair last night, I asked Mariyah what the best adoption advice she ever got was. We’ve been to a fair number of adoption events and conferences, and they sometimes do sessions with the kids. I thought perhaps she’d gleaned some good advice herself.
Her response: “Don’t sweat the small stuff.”
“That is great advice sweetie! Who told you that one?”
“I told it to myself.”
“Wow. Great advice to tell yourself. I wish someone had given that advice to me.”
“Mom, I just did!”
Ahh. True. Sage advice from an 8 year adoption veteran.
Honestly though, I kind of love it, and it works in almost every situation. When it comes to adoption, you need an ability to role with the punches.
