An Adoptive Mom Talks About her Journey Raising a Child with Invisible Needs

Many of us fantasized what parenthood would look like way before we had children. Our ideas of parenthood might have been solidified in early childhood, as we tucked our baby doll in her toy crib. Or it may have been dreamt about the moment we knew we were about to become a parent.

Janelle Molony talks about her new released memoir, Un-Adoptable? Faith Beyond Foster Care on this episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast.

But for some of us, the dream and reality didn’t match. Our children had issues. Our children had fears. Our children had struggles.

Janelle Molony’s idea of motherhood wasn’t what she had imagined. After entering the world of foster care to adopt her child, she was thrown into a whirlwind of issues and struggles she wasn’t anticipating. In her memoir, Un-Adoptable? Faith Beyond Foster Care, she recounts her struggles and triumphs and how ultimately, she was able to move out of the darkness and into the light.

I had the pleasure of talking with Janelle on this week’s AT Parenting Survival Podcast. To learn more about Janelle’s work go to her website, www.adoptiontolife.com or check out her book Un-Adoptable? Faith Beyond Foster Care.
