Extra, Extra

This post has nothing to do with writing or reading but I do need your help.  As many of you know both our children are adopted. 





Well, we are filling out adoption papers again, hoping to find another member of our family.  Most placements are made because of knowing someone who knows someone who knows of a child.  Both of our children were found that way.  So I'm getting the word out to as many people as possible. We need your help to find our children.  Not as much fun as having kids the old fashioned way but this way we can involve all our friends and family.  :)


I know that to many of you I'm a faceless person behind a computer screen but I'm asking anyone who's willing to keep us in mind if you know of a child or children who need a home. Our adoption website isn't up yet but if you want to find out about us shoot me an email (sara(dot)bowers(at)gmail(dot)com)  and I'll send you all the info that we give to our agency and that we would put on our adoption website profiles so you can get to know us. 


Thanks for reading and for keeping us in mind.
Our children have changed our lives, and I hope we've changed theirs for the better.

  1. Wow, that is amazing, it really is. What a kind and wonderful human being you are.

    You realize, of course, that i want to joke about sending my two teenagers your way!!!! Seriously, I don't know any children who could use a home like yours, but if I did, I would be thrilled to pass their information along. Good luck!!!

  8. Big congrats, Sara! I'll let you know if I hear anything. My daughter (15) is adopted from China. Love that you're adopting again. Wish we could have but with the expense and my husband's health, it didn't work out.

  9. My wife and I had planned on adopting, but two (unexpected) children 13 months apart put the brakes on pursuing that. I do wish you all the best in your search.

  23. This post made me so happy. You have such a kind heart!

    My husband and I will be adopting from foster care in 2-3 years. Seeing pictures of your beautiful, adorable children just makes me wish the time would come already. :)

    I don't know of any children in need of homes (though I knew a child who did in the past, back when I worked a day job, so it's not impossible.) I'll keep you in mind. Best of luck!

  24. Bless you. Actually, I have no doubts that your children already bless you. (And vice versa.) I don't know of any children offhand, but if I come across any, I'll let you know. Any specifics? Like are you looking for an infant? At any rate, good luck.

  25. I'm so inspired by your actions, Sara. I'm too far away from the city to know anyone in this predicament, but you never know. I'll get in touch if I ever hear of anyone.

  29. Can they be from anywhere in the world? It's an amazing thing you're doing and I hope you find your new special guy/girl soon. Your kids are cute!

  30. I'm sure you'll get what you want, and a child will get what s/he wants by coming inside a loving home.
