Josh and Kelly took placement of their beautiful baby girl Ansley in late January this year. The also took the networking challenge as waiting adoptive parents. They signed up and participated in the online courses through My Adoption Advisor, created a profile, website, Facebook page, and YouTube video! Not to mention getting the word out to family and friends that they were looking to adopt!
Through a friend of a friend who knew they were looking to adopt, they connected with their birth mother. Once they established contact with their birth mom, they found it was extremely helpful that they were able to refer her to their website, where she was able to learn more about them and their family.
Since their placement, they have learned that waiting parents are indeed putting themselves out there and networking in an effort to shorten their wait time and best of all… it really works!!! “Networking brought us to our birth parents who gave us the gift of completing our forever family!”, said Kelly.
A big thanks to Josh, Kelly and their family for allowing us to tell the story of their adoption journey.
