Call me crazy, but I don’t love super sweet adoption quotes. It’s just not my thing. I’ve got other things. Like romantic comedies. And Oreos. But when it comes to quotes, I like a bit of realism. If the quote mentions Jesus or someone growing in someone else’s heart, it won’t be getting any of the googly eyed emojis from me on Facebook.
Oddly enough, honest adoption quotes and memes seem to be a rare find. Every now and then I’ll throw a couple together myself.
But it’s always more fun when someone else creates it, and you just happen to stumble across it. Here are a couple I like (or love) that I thought some of you guys would appreciate as well.
I love this quote. People are always telling me “I want to adopt but…” or “I want to foster but…” There will never be a right time.
Tis true. I studied parenting for 40 hours and let lots of strangers investigate my house whenever they felt like it. Officially licensed mom here. (source unknown)
A lot of memes that I don’t love err on the side of saviorism. I like this one because I think it points out the importance of adoption without the heavy handedness. (source)
This one makes it’s way around Facebook from time to time and always makes me smile. That paperwork man. I haven’t yet met an adoptive parent who didn’t have some kind of paperwork drama (something lost, misplaced, misfiled, etc).
And in the same vein, this one from adoption.com is pretty fitting too!
