A Journey Into Adoption is a superb new blog written by a dear, dear friend of mine in the UK. To protect his beautiful child, all parties must remain anonymous. Adoption involves seriously sensitive issues and children’s backgrounds are obviously far from straightforward. Subsequently, I am unable to credit this wonderful man and his wife by name for their admirable strength in persisting, against all odds, in their quest to bring a child into their home, their lives and their hearts. They have such a huge amount of love to give and this story has a happy ending. A Journey Into Adoption is not only an extraordinary resource for anyone considering the adoption path, but also a very valuable and inspiring read in itself. I cannot comment on the difference between the pathway for adoption in Australia, but this blog follows the desperately tedious bureaucratic journey through the British system.
Hello!I'm Miranda Barber. I’m all sorts of things, but currently, first and foremost a mum. Mid-second pregnancy, my family relocated from London to Melbourne via Vietnam. A rollercoaster. As a dear friend of mine so eloquently puts it: "As a mum of two you have two choices: you can either look good or feel good but you can't have both." Too right. This is an observational blog of life's car crashes and quirks on this huge learning curve. You're welcome here.
