Just listened to a podcast about adopting. I adopted my 3 year old I had 2 failed adoptions the whole process took about 2 years Just wanted Olivia keep that in mind if she goes that route.

Great podcast for listening to other points of view

Have been listening since the beginning and was impressed at the amount of guests that have come on and offered other points of view and life experiences, not to mention hear about the hosts life experiences as well. Often the last 20 mins of the show is the funniest !

Thank you guys 😉
