How To Empower Yourself While You Wait To Adopt

Adoption empowerment

“We trust the process. We trust the woman who's making this decision. And we don't want to try to control it...There's so much you feel you can control, but, it's a bit of an illusion” – Stephanie Casaubon, Author & Empowerment Coach

In this episode, we talk with Stephanie Casaubon (Author, Empowerment Coach and mother of two by adoption) about how waiting adoptive parents can empower themselves to take their lives back and live fully while waiting to adopt. From a very young age, Stephanie always knew she wanted to be a Mom. After a rare lung diagnosis at the age of 28, she knew that motherhood would not come to her in the traditional sense and that she would need to seek other options. After she surpassed her life expectancy, she and her husband pursued adoption and are now parents to two girls, ages 7.5 and 9.5.

Here’s what you will hear:

• How to embrace the uncertainty of the wait and enjoy the ride.

• How to shift your mindset to maintain hope in light of despair.

• 3 questions waiting adoptive parents need to ask themselves to start living again.
