Adoption as an Acronym

Gingerbread menJust as a small aside, here is my take on adoption as an acronym. I’d love to know what it means to you?

Amusement – even on a bad day they will do or say something that makes you smile

 Dedication – helping and supporting your child in everything they do

Openness – helping them understand who they are and where they come from

Patience – required by the bucketful, but inevitably it does run out

Tenacity – never giving up

Irritation – sometime you just can’t help but feel irritated, by children, teachers, social workers, other parents, partners, in fact just about everyone!

Ordinary – the never ending hope that today will be an ‘ordinary’ day with no incidents or drama

Nurture – what it’s all about!
