The best adoption stories are written by the experts – adoptive families! Read our collection of family stories below, each one written by an adoptive family or a family who lives were touched by adoption. Come back each month to see new stories as we post them.
Do you have your own story to tell? Please share it with Wide Horizons For Children! Send us your family story or even a photo that has brought joy, challenge, laughter, or perspective to your life. Story submissions will be reviewed monthly and posted to this page. We accept new material or entries from a previously-written blog post, journal or article. Thanks for contributing!

Our second year has been filled with lots of small moments where we have slowed down to connect, heal, and build something new. We will all admit that what we are building is not perfect and the process is often messy. But… it is us weaving our lives together. It is how we define our family.
We spent two weeks together in China doing all the paperwork that had to be done to get you home to your forever family. You were so patient, we went everywhere together, doctor’s visit, adoption finalization, notary paperwork and you took it all in stride. Funny, together we waited.
At Wide Horizons For Children, we believe in the power of free speech and welcome many voices and opinions. All stories on this page have been written and submitted by adoptive families or those touched by adoption. Stories have not been edited or altered in anyway by Wide Horizons or its staff.”
