Adoption Journeys

All Roads Led to Bulgaria

We began researching our adoption in 2010.  At that time, we decided all roads led to Bulgaria.  Our dossier was officially registered as of April 2012.  And then we waited.  And waited.  We had initially started our journey with another agency, and communication was not their strength.  They closed just before we received our referral, which turned out to be an unexpected blessing.  We contacted Little Miracles in something of a panic, knowing we were getting so close to a referral and terrified our agency’s closing would jeopardize our process.  From first contact, Andrea’s response was, “don’t worry, this is a priority, and we’ve got it.”  And they did.  On June 7, 2018, I got an email from Andrea saying, “…your BEAUTIFUL daughter has shown her face…”  In that moment, I became a mom.  Eight days layer we were Bulgaria-bound, and three days after that we first held our baby girl.  Fast forward to November 15, 2019, and Olivia has been home exactly one year today.  She is amazing.  She is loving, smart, sassy, and bold and we can’t imagine our lives without her.  We are so thankful to the Little Miracles team for helping us to bring our little miracle home.
