Crystal gets real, very real, about the ⬆️highs & lows⬇️ of adoption.
Crystal & Nick have 3 biological children and 1 adopted daughter, Guyana, who was born with spina bifida (& a few other medical challenges) that require full-time medical care.
This episode is packed, so buckle up! Here’s a few things you’ll hear…
💭“I knew from the moment I saw her photo that I knew, that I knew, that I knew, that I knew. I knew she was meant to be our daughter.”
💭”There’s a lot of heartbreak. Guyana rejected us when she first met us. It was a spiritual battle.”
💭”It is hard, and you will regret adopting multiple times.”
💭”There are definite challenges, but again I would do it a thousand times over. I’m absolutely 100% open to adopting again.”
💭”Anything worth doing is going to be incredibly difficult.”
💭“People call us saints on a regular basis, which we are so far not, but I think the reason they do that is they can easily dismiss the idea of adoption for themselves.”
💭“The love is all encompassing. When you make a choice to love a child that you did not give birth to, you are reflecting the love of the father who has chosen to love you with His everything.
