    As an adoptive parent, I have come to know that for something as beautiful and restorative as adoption to happen, something else has to be broken and wrecked first. Someone has to lose their child in order for someone else to adopt them. That’s what God was trying to tell me that night. He had to lose His perfect Son to the sinful world so that we could be adopted by Him and be saved. Christmas IS magical, but first it had to be devastating. It was the night that Jesus became separated from God and made “lower than the angels for a time” (Hebrews 2:9). It was the night that changed everything.

    For us, Christmas is when we praise God for sending His Son to save us from our own sinful nature, and for God, it’s the night His heart was broken so that we could be made whole. I wept that night and several times since at the thought of sending my precious newborn baby boy away from my safety to die. That’s when it changed for me. I began to see Christmas with eyes better attuned to its magnitude and complete holiness.

    Oh Holy Night, the stars were brightly shining. It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth.

    Long lay the world, in sin and ever pining, till He appeared, and the soul felt its worth.

    S5E77: AMP Plus|Can't Adopt? Here's What You CAN Do - Alex Fittin (Me!)

    Every week over on Patreon, I do a bonus show for Team AMP - the AMAZING listeners and supporters who choose to invest their cash money in helping to produce the podcast starting at just $5 a month. Today, I wanted to give all of you guys a preview of what these shows are like! They are always a deep-dive on the topic discussed in the regular show, and always chock-full of research, practical tips, and my heart for the issue. They usually run about 10 minutes long and go along with the Bible Study Guide for the week that Team AMP receives every Monday morning.

    In this AMP Plus episode, we’re deep-diving five different ways that support systems can offer help and assistance to adoptive families.

    S5E75: Beauty is Rising - Kelli Belt

    www.theadoptivemompodcast.com
    Kelli has a background in marriage and family therapy, and as a fellow adoptive mom, she is a perfect person to walk alongside mamas and help them feel love and connection through these hard times.

    She and her family waited over SEVEN YEARS to bring their baby girl home from Ethiopia, and that long, hard waiting process is part of what we talk about in his week’s episode. She describes to us how difficult it is to walk with the Lord when your soul feels like it’s being ripped out of you and when you can’t see the overall plan. She describes the “after the airport” times and how we can often forget that there’s more than the finish line of bringing a child home. She talks about these things and so much more in our conversation together, and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it!

    S5E74: Attachment in the Upside Down- Shannon Guerra

    S5E74: Attachment in the Upside Down- Shannon Guerra

    The title of Shannon Guerra’s book includes “Understanding and supporting attachment in adoptive families.” So when I sat down to talk to her in our interview, I was expecting to talk about attachment parenting and other Connected Child-y type stuff, but that’s not what happened. Instead, we talked about the journey we go through as moms of kids from hard places. The journey of feeling let down by unmet expectations, and of realizing what “hard” actually means, and of learning to love someone who can’t love you back, and of finding your people who are *really* your people. It was like a breath of fresh air to talk to someone on the other side of the country to experiences the exact same things I do (with her own specifics, of course). It’s validating somehow to know that my struggles are not unique and that we are in it together, even if we don’t even know each other.
    Shannon Guerra is an author, wife, ministry leader, and mama to eight kids via birth and adoption. She and her husband Vince live in Wasilla, Alaska, where they spend their time reading, writing, homeschooling, ministering to families, and wading through cats and small children.
