Both Drue and I knew at a very young age that we wanted to adopt. Adoption has been key in building of Drues family and we couldn’t imagine our family as complete today if we had not adopted our daughter. While some children are able to find permanent living homes… every year, more than 20,000 youth age out of foster care with no permanent family and no safety net. I do know the impression to adopt or foster isn’t there for everyone (and that okay), There are so many different ways to help these children! During #NationalFosterCareMonth , @dtfa is partnering with @HOMAGE to raise awareness of its mission and the urgent need for #FosterCareAdoption with their #LoveMakesAFamily t-shirt. Drue and I are excited to wear our shirts in support of this incredibly important cause. Learn how you can join me in helping foster youth in there link in my bio!

Friday roundup! 👀✨ We got back from our Honeymoon in Puerto Rico late Sunday night and we’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things this week. It hasn’t been easy 😂 but is it ever after vacation?!? Some highlights of this past week include👇🏼 - Cassie started the One Room Challenge this week and will doing a huge flip to our family room 🎨 - it looks like spring is finally here which means all the planting for my edible garden! Heading to the nursery today to pick up blueberry bushes for something new this year 😍 - We are anxiously awaiting for the rest of our porch furniture to ship so we can complete that flip and enjoy the nice weather ☀️ - Our tribe of animals has been SO happy we are back home and have been snuggling us like there’s no tomorrow 🐈 🐈‍⬛ 🐈‍⬛ 🐕 - Also we finally watched In The Heights and it was SO GOOD!!! Highly recommend! What are you up to this weekend? 👇🏼 #globalgaygirlgang #pride #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqia #lovewins #wlw #loveislove #loveisloveislove #lesbiancouple #couplegoals #marriedlife #lesbiansofig #lesbiansofinsta #girlswhokissgirls #girlswholikegirls #twomoms #ttc #ttcjourney #twowives #twobrides #mrsandmrs #lovemakesafamily #outandproud #lovehasnogender #samesexmarriage #samesexcouple

We love enjoying coffee this time of the year when the morning golden hour sun shines right into our kitchen! Our mornings tend to be a little crazy at times with our kids getting ready for school and Andy’s work schedule and love soaking up these calm morning moments when we have time to lounge around in our @tommyjohnwear loungewear! All Tommy John’s loungewear is seriously the perfect fit and so comfortable! We love them, and for a limited time you can use my promo code FONTES25 for 25% off your order (link in bio)! http://www.bit.ly/fontesfourpacktommyjohn #ad #TommyJohnPartner #NoAdjustmentNeeded

In honor of James’s birthday week, here are a few of our favorite children’s books about adoption. Anyone that knows us, knows how close adoption is to our hearts. It gave us the gift of our little man 6 years ago. We feel so lucky to call him ours and we’re so thankful to his birth mother for choosing us. Adoption is hard, even when it’s beautiful. It takes a village, and we have a great one. #adoptionislove #lovemakesafamily #worththewait #wearetheluckyones #adoptionisbeautiful #adoptionbooks #adoptionbooksforkids

Grief takes away all the ability to move on and live in the new reality you refuse to accept, but it is love that carries you through the next day even when it seems impossible. Day after day, loving this person so hard knowing they are not physically here, rather they now live in you. Love is that strong to keep you going and make the unthinkable happen. #livingwithgrief #crossingmilestonestogether #mentalhealthawareness #missingyou #mybrotherskeeper #lovemakesafamily #loveispowerful
