Welcome to AdoptionFathers.com, the ultimate resource for adoptive fathers. This site is dedicated to serving men and their families as they pursue the great calling of adoption. At AdoptionFathers.com our focus is on uncovering and communicating the truth behind the questions, issues, fears, hopes and obstacles of being an adoptive father; beginning with the decision to adopt all the way through the parenting process. Our ultimate objective is simply to support and encourage the thousands of men being called to build their family via adoption.
AdoptionFathers.com was started quite honestly out of frustration over the lack of resources available to me as my wife and I pursued the adoption of my first child several years ago. I searched high and low only to find that no one was talking or writing about the challenges that I faced throughout the adoption process. While there seemed to be plenty of opportunity for my wife to connect with other women for support, perspective and information (via blogs, phone calls, books/articles, oh and more phone calls), there were limited resources available to meet the needs of the adoptive father.
Since completing our first adoption nearly two years ago, I’ve had the opportunity to talk with more and more adoptive dads and was amazed to find out that they were just as frustrated as me. What’s worse is that most of these guys dealt with many of the same challenges that I faced during the process. How great would it have been to leverage the wisdom and understanding of the guys who went before me? How much easier would the years spent in the adoption process have been if I had access to resources directed at me? How many more men would enter and complete the adoption process if only they could learn from guys who battled the same challenges and found a way through?
It seemed clear that God was calling for this void to be filled – AdoptionFathers.com.
So thank you for joining us on our site and trusting us to support you during this amazing journey. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an amazing story you’d like to share, a challenge with which you need support, or if there is any other way we can be of service to you. Thank you!
