  • For the 20 years before I was married, all I wanted to be when I grew up was a wife and a mom. I carried around my twin baby dolls (how funny!) named Martha and Margaret. I dreamt of keeping a home, sewing on buttons, making dinners and reading to my babies by the fire at night. I always said I wanted to have 10 kids.... have 5 and adopt 5! (true story! 😂😍)
.
.
.
When I was 23, I married you, Doug. You were 37. You already had 5 kids and had been married for almost 13 years (plus 2 years together dating and engaged). .
.
.
I had NO idea what I was getting into. When a person has dreamed about the way their life would look for two decades and then they settle in and it is literally NOTHING like what they’d imagined—the disappointment is fierce. Fear creeps in. Doubt creeps in. Blaming creeps in. Anger creeps in. Bitterness creeps in. It’s real. .
.
.
But fear is a liar. .
.
.
In the last almost 9 years, we’ve overcome private, painful and deep battles that most people can’t understand and wouldn’t begin to believe! But you and I have dug into those dark crevices together and continue to figure it out, and continue to pray, and continue to forgive and keep trying. .
.
.
And as Vince Lombardi (former head coach of the Green Bay Packers) said: “the harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.” .
.
.
We’re never giving in. We’re never giving up. We’re reshaping our dreams: together. And I’ll love you as long as I live, Doug. Thank you for loving me first. .

  • Y’all. The planner in me is struggling 🥴 More and more delays in Anne’s permanency. If I told you what is happening you may not even believe this is real life that this is how the process is actually allowed to go. BUT, I’m thankful that Anne girl is completely unaware this is going on and that her life is sweet and happy as normal. Right now she is constantly talking about how it’s almost her birthday and she is starting ballet soon. So glad for our sweet routine in the mist of chaos and uncertainty.❤️

  • Last night in my mailbox was your new birth certificate, for the world to recognize you as our son as if anyone really needed that because my heart has known you as just that since day one. As I sat here this morning pouring over the details I reflected on all that you’ve brought to our lives and how life without you now seems like a distant memory. Before you: the house was a little quieter, not as many giggles to go around. The faith I thought I had before you was a lot more superficial, because having you and your bio fam in my life has shown me more about who my God is than I could’ve ever learned alone. Before you I was an adoptee, now I am also an adoptive mother and can see life through the lens of my momma and how she loved me. Before you I was just an advocate for people of color, since you I have learned what it means to instead become an ally. Before you my voice was quiet, easy to step on, but since you I’ve found worth in that voice and standing firm for my family. You.. you will never ever know the many ways in which you changed our lives, but to think that a world without you could’ve ever existed pains me. Thankful today for all the “no’s” that brought us to you, our sweet and perfect “yes” // 🐛

  • This is my little brother Kaiden. He is 15. And I am his legal guardian. Kaiden was adopted by my mother at birth. They had a very open adoption, because they were all friends, and he spent many holidays and events with our mom and his biological family all together. Being that he is 20 years younger than me, I didn’t know him all that well. I was away at college and rarely did I come home. When our mother died, he had been living with his biological family off and on for months because of her failing health. Again, they had a very open adoption. Legally he was a Crockett. Which meant I was the next of kin. At the time, I was in my second semester of grad school and working full time in the ER as a nurse. I didn’t know the first thing about taking care of a 10 year old. Let alone being single and dealing with all the emotions of losing my mother on top of it all. So we went to counseling. All of us. And were told we needed a lawyer. A friend from high school reached out knowing I didn’t have any money, and wanted to help. He was a family lawyer that lived 4 hours away and made the trek multiple times to eventually finalize me becoming Kaiden’s legal guardian in court (2nd photo). His biological family is amazing. His mom and dad have been by our side through every step of the way. Together with Kaiden and our counselor, we made the choice for him to live with his bio family (which he has 3 other brothers) because he knew them so well and had been living there off and on already. And I couldn’t be more grateful knowing how much he is loved.  And I get to be the ‘fun sister’. I think this is one reason why open adoption is so important to me. Because we are all in this together. And as unique situation as ours is, it works. And works well. So, why do I share this with you? Because tonight I took him out to celebrate his acceptance into the High School for Performing Arts. He deserves the world and I couldn’t be more proud of all he has done in life despite losing his mom and older sister by the age of 12. I love you little bro. And can’t wait to see you on Broadway some day! Xoxo, @heathercrock ❤️ I was given permission by Kaiden to tell his story. #adoption

  • The evolution of a Lemmon-Honey hug 🥰🤣 Sometimes I think if I passed out, was kidnapped, or fell asleep for the whole entire day, Lemmon could take care of Honey girl 😅 I swear she can change a diaper in five seconds flat🤣 last night I walked into her room to see she laid out Honey pj’s and diaper and knew to sing her bedtime song 😭🥰 Having this two mama gig thing isn’t half bad 😉🍯🍋 @cottononkidsusa #cottononkidscrew #gift

  • Im Auftrag unserer privaten Tierschützerin stellen wir euch folgende Fellnase vor:

Samtpfote Poppy sucht ganz dringend ihre Lieblingsmenschen. ❤️ Die kleine Poppy wurde von Zenias Enkeln an einer stark befahrenen Straße gefunden und hätte es wohl ohne ihre Hilfe nicht geschafft. 😥
Zenia ist sofort mit der Kleinen zum Tierarzt gefahren um sie versorgen zu lassen und zum Glück konnten keine Verletzungen festgestellt werden. 
Poppy ist jetzt dringend auf der Suche nach einem Zuhause und wir hoffen ihr teilt sie fleißig damit sie gesehen wird. 😍
Da in Kürze eine Baustelle in unmittelbarer Nähe von Poppy's Pflegeplatz eröffnet wird, wünscht sich die kleine Maus ein Zuhause in welchem sie sicher ist. 
Alter: ca 3 Monate (stand 15.8.19)
geimpft: ja
kastriert: nein 
gechipt: ja
Handicap: keins bekannt 
Verträglich: mit Artgenossen und Menschen 
Möchtest Du Poppy ein kuschliges Zuhause schenken? Dann geht's hier zur Selbstauskunft: 
Wir freuen uns auf Dich! ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

  • TIA - 9 mois - À L’ADOPTION
La petite Tia a été trouvée dehors. Elle est née dehors mais est très proche de l’homme quand même. Elle était gestante d’à peine 1 mois quand elle a été trouvée. A juste 6 mois, avec 6 fœtus, sa grossesse aurait été trop risquée pour elle. Elle a été avortée. C’est une petite chatte sûre d’elle et bien dans ses pattes. Elle est très joueuse et câline. Un véritable amour. Elle ne cherche pas du tout la présence des autres chats. Les humains lui conviennent mieux. Elle peut vivre en appartement. 
Elle est identifiée, déparasitée, vaccinée, stérilisée et testée négative FIV/FELV. 
Elle est visible à Chelles dans le 77. 
Adoption sous contrat d'association ce qui inclus les frais d'adoption, une visite chez vous et un suivi post adoption.

  • PIGLET – 5 mois - A L’ADOPTION

Pastel, notre maman, était une chatte de rue très farouche. La gentille dame qui la nourrissait dehors a remarqué son ventre qui s’arrondissait et a appelé l’association pour lui trouver une famille d’accueil pour que nous puissions naître en sécurité dans une maison. Nous sommes nés seulement 3 jours après l’arrivée de maman dans la famille ! Ouf, il était temps ! Moi je suis la plus timide et la plus craintive de la portée. Pour l’instant ! Car je regarde beaucoup mon frère et ma sœur se faire câliner, et j’avoue que ça a l’air génial !!! Avec un peu de patience, je serai une vraie machine à câlins comme eux. Pour l’instant je commence à m’approcher et à ronronner, c’est un bon début. Ah et il parait que je suis une flèche, je suis hyper rapide ! et j’adore dormir en hauteur ! J’espère qu’il y a des espaces en hauteur chez vous parce que ça me rassurerai beaucoup et comme ça je trouverais plus vite le courage de venir faire des câlins ! Comme tous les chatons, je n’aime pas trop être seule, je m’ennuie vite. J’ai besoin d’un copain de mon âge ou plus vieux pour partager mes aventures !
Conditions d'adoption: Malgré un bon sevrage, un chaton a besoin de la référence d’un congénère jusqu’à l’âge de 5 mois environ où la, on peut observer qu’il commence à prendre de l’assurance et de l’indépendance. C’est pour cette raison que tous nos chatons seront placés chez une famille possédant déjà un chat ou deux par deux.

Elle est identifiée, déparasitée et vaccinée. La maman est testée négative FIV/FELV.

Elle est visible à Pavillons sous-bois dans le 93.

  • Another bit lovable boofhead all the way from Sydney.... ✈️ Being that Aimee is a strong presence in the Rottweiler community, we get calls from all over Aus 🌍 to help them. Of course they could go to other rescue groups, and that is normally the first port of call but most of the time, the owners only want them to come to us. 
This is Bear. Bear’s owner paid for his flights to Adelaide and donated a little extra for special food. Bear has an intolerance to the protein in meat products and spent A LOT of time at the vet as a young puppy. This created very negative experiences for him, and since he has become increasingly anxious and nervous. He is now on a strict fish and potato diet.

We are going to be working closely with him before rehoming. Our aim is to build up his contdience in his handlers and the environment. 
He is already showing a willingness to please and a desire to learn. He has done a complete 160 in attitude from yesterday - thankfully for the better!

  • ‘Birth Parents: Real Questions and Answers’ is a compelling documentary explicitly exposing the angst and aspirations of birth parents whose children are in foster care debunks the stereotypes attached to such situations. But it also implicitly begs questions around the pressure of those taking on the responsibility. Check it out on @CatholicCareHM’s YouTube channel.

  • För 4 år sedan kom vi till Parraga och träffade Max för första gången. Han hade varit där ett år redan och stressen av att vara i buren var märkbar. När vi släppte ut honom, blev han till en ny hund, en valp som ville busa och springa och leka med sina vänner. Men på kvällen blev det samma rutin, att låsa in honom i buren och återigen se honom så olycklig. Det kändes som man bestraffade honom varje gång.  Men mitt hopp fanns alltid att jag skulle få ut honom. 
Det var en mörk dag då vi fick reda på att Max tyvärr hade leishmania, och hans chanser att hitta ett hem hade minskat drastiskt. Det var många tårar som fälldes, och allt hopp kändes borta. I 4 år besökte vi Max på våra resor, och gjorde allt för att förbättra hans livskvalité. Men hur mycket vi än försökte så gick det inte att undgå, att han mådde dåligt och det fanns inget vi kunde göra åt saken. I 4 år har det varit många tårar, och idag 4 år senare gråter jag för första gången tårar av glädje. MAX HAR HITTAT ETT HEM I TYSKLAND! 
Min älskade pojke slipper äntligen sin bur, och är fri.
Idag var det en vinst för många iblandade. Men än är det inte över. Det finns många hundar som Max som vi ännu kämpar för. I år hittade vi ett hem till Dona som efter 5 år i bur också fick sitt föralltidhem. Genom er hjälp och ert stöd ändrar ni hundarnas liv. Så med detta vill jag bara tacka alla som går efter mottot "adopt don't shop". #adoptdontshop #adopt #adoption #rescuedog #rescueismyfavoritebreed #stray #hund #dog #max

  • Hi everyone, I'm Ffion and I'm looking for my forever family 💖

I'm a young malamute, around 12-18 months old -  my aunty Jade says I'm quite a calm little lady and would suit living with a lovely calm male dog, I'd also be happy as an only dog too. I can live with children, but they need to be older and dog savvy.

I love my cuddly toys - so that's a must for my new home and my forever family have to enjoy walking because it's one of my favourite things to do - I always take a little nap when I get back from my long walks 💤

Do you think you could be my forever family? 🐺
Please contact my friends at 8 Below and they can organise a homecheck for you, we do rehome nationwide in mainland England, Scotland and Wales 🧡

  • CURRY - 1 an 1/2 - A L'ADOPTION
Salut le monde. Moi, je suis Curry et je suis beau. Je vous assure. Tout le monde le dit en me voyant. Mais, je le savais déjà. Ça se travaille, une belle image de soi. Je marche tranquillement en roulant des mécaniques et en parlant avec ma voix rauque. Je montre que je suis sûr de moi avec une nonchalance exagérée. Moi, je suis un caïd. Rien ne me fait peur.... Euh... Pourquoi tu glousses ? - Parce que, mon poussin, je t’ai déjà vu partir en courant sous le lit pour une broutille et revenir l’air de rien, comme si on avait rien vu 😂😂 - Non, ce n’est pas de la peur.. c’est de la prudence. Tu ne comprends rien. Sinon, il parait que je suis un vrai pot de colle. Mais, vous n’avez pas connu la rue vous. Moi si, et je vous assure ce n’est pas la joie. Je ne veux plus y retourner. Je me suis battu plus d’une fois et j’ai attrapé le FIV. Je me suis retrouvé avec une grosse gingivite et je n’arrivais plus à manger. J’ai cru que j’allais mourir de faim. Puis, on m’a attrapé. Franchement, je ne voulais pas. Je connais les hommes qui vous prennent et vous jettent dehors. Je préférais me débrouiller seul. Mais là, cette famille m’a soigné et choyé. Alors, je les inonde de câlins. J’adore plus particulièrement me blottir sur leur genoux ou à leur pieds. Je pourrais dormir des heures contre eux. J’ai confiance maintenant. Elle m’a promis une belle vie en famille malgré ma pathologie. Et pour ça, je suis prêt à vivre en intérieur et même avec un chien s’il le faut. Une petite terrasse serait top. Je ne suis pas vadrouilleur mais j’aime bien m’allonger à l’air libre. J’accepte tout à partir du moment où on m’aime et où on prend soin de moi. Je vous le rendrai en amour ++++
Curry est identifié, vacciné, déparasité, castré et testé FIV+/FELV-.
Il est visible à Chelles dans le 77.
Adoption sous contrat d'association ce qui inclus les frais d'adoption, une visite chez vous et un suivi post adoption.
