The Bestie Breakdown- Episode 23 Breaking Down Adoption

Hey There, Everyone!

Happy November!  I hope you all had the best Halloween weekend.  A couple things I’d like to recap about ours…

1. We found ourselves trying to cram 96 hours of Halloween movies into our sports-packed Halloween weekend because we hadn’t watched all the movies.  We vowed to not let that happen in the Christmas movie department so last night we started watching Christmas with the Kranks.  

2. We all went to bed WAY too late for a school night on Halloween which left me in a weird fog all day yesterday.  Anyone else?  Why is that Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday in November BUT Halloween moves all around?  Who could we petition to get that changed?  And I thought I’d like the kids being out of school, but it was a horrible way to start our week.  Last night we all went to bed super early in an attempt to catch up on sleep.

3. I did a horrible job taking Halloween pictures.  I took like two at the start of the night and then didn’t reach for my phone again!  UGH!

Okay, now on to the serious stuff.  Shay and I have a new episode of The Bestie Breakdown for you.  This one is unlike any other podcast we’ve released before.  We’ve chatted a ton about things we enjoy, hobbies, or past times, the way we run our houses, but this topic is one that wrecks us both deep down to the core.  It can break us like nothing else.  Today on the podcast we’re breaking down ADOPTION.  And my goodness-we both shared our hearts, vulnerable stories, and we’re praying you hear that as you listen.  I’m not usually a crier and I’m telling you this topic gets me every single time.  In honor of National Adoption Month we decided to break down a topic near and dear to each of our families.  There was so much we could have said so we think this will just be a little introduction and based on your feedback we’ll dive deeper into many different parts of adoption.  We have hearts for adoption as evidenced by our families and I’m praying as you listen you might be moved to add a member to your family as well.

You can listen to the latest episode on your favorite podcast platform or find it right here as well.

Thank you for listening today and for letting us share our hearts.  Happy Tuesday, Friends!
