My Instagram DM’s have been blowing up with questions about the adoption process ever since Joe and I announced the arrival of Amaya. I love connecting with women in such a positive way, sharing our story and helping to navigate the the tough decisions that come up. Here is a comprehensive guide to the adoption process. Whether you’re looking into International adoption, domestic adoption through an agency or private domestic adoption, I have you covered. Joe and I touched upon all three…
If you’re considering private domestic adoption, I encourage you to check out our team. Let’s call them, Team Lombardi. Throughout the months of waiting and countless potential birth mom connections, they were by our side for support and guidance. Being that our adoption happened very quickly (we found out we had a baby when the birth mom was in labor!), they all worked overtime to make sure things were done as quickly and efficiently as possible. We couldn’t be happier with the people we chose to work with.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you already saw the new addition to our family, Jimi! We rescued him at 11-weeks old from a shelter in CT, who rescued him from a kill shelter in South Carolina. He’s mostly black lab, but also a mix of terrier and pit. To say we love him is an understatement!
Throughout the past few weeks of grief, one piece of advice keeps circling, "tend to something," and it led me to begin fostering kittens. Taking care of my first foster kitten, who was seven weeks when I got him, had a cold and was very weak, has been a reason to get out of bed and he’s looking for a forever home.
