LETTING YOUR CHILD KNOW THEY ARE ADOPTED

This is the last post in the adoption series and I am so grateful for the past one month writing about adoption. The posts so far are not in any way exhaustive on the issue of adoption, but you can start from here, here, here and here. This is one very important issue on the...

CONSIDERING ADOPTION? LET’S LOOK AT THE LAW

Why should we be considering the legal aspect of discussion? What business has that got to do with a child whom you have chosen to be a part of your family forever? It’s important I write on this aspect because there’s need for orientation to make people understand the legal effect of adoption. I was...

FAMILY AND FRIENDS, HOLD YOUR PEACE

“A butterfly that thinks itself a bird.” While that idiom quoted above may not make complete sense to you when you check the meaning of the idiom and put side by side with the subject of adoption, it is pregnant with meaning. I mentioned in an earlier post that my first interaction with the subject...

THEY HAVE QUESTIONS, AND THEY NEED ANSWERS

Adoption is a deep and sensitive subject and it requires that you understand the nuances of adoption before going into it. Once you step into the water, you have to go all in and you have to be prepared for the journey ahead. One of the nuances you have to understand about adoption is that...

LET’S TALK ABOUT ADOPTION

I know quite well that this is not a topic that is readily accepted in our clime (Africa), and most people do not even see a reason for adoption. My first major interaction on the subject of adoption was in my third year in the university. It was a family law class, and the lecturer...

MY MOTHER-IN-LAW STORY- JULIET AMBALI

Writing my personal experience and relationship with my mother-in-law has to be one of the sweetest things to write about. I’ll love to say that she is as simple as ABC but that may imply that only gentle women make great mothers-in-law. In fact, all women and men also who have the spirit of God...

WHY WOMEN?

Have you ever read articles that have titles like this “what women should,” “how women should,” “when women can,” and all those articles in those flavour. I know you must have. What spurred this post is when I saw another of these articles on one of the WhatsApp groups I belong too. It left me...

GOD FIRST. YOUR SPOUSE SECOND. YOUR CHILDREN NEXT. OTHERS LAST

I’ve written several posts related to this if I’m not mistaken. One of which is “Who Takes Priority?” Here.  This is not so much of a new subject on the blog, but I want you to hold a little longer and read to the end. In my previous posts, (you can be selfish), (who comes...

IT’S A JOINT RESPONSIBILITY

This thing called marriage is a a joint responsibility anyhow you want to see it or explain it. If one person is bearing the burden alone in any area, there will be strains. YOU CAN ALSO READ: ARE YOU HELPING HER?  However, how you (as a couple or would be couple) want to share the...
