This journey is long and can often be defeating. The fact is, parenting is hard. Sometimes, in the face of it all, we just need some solidarity.

We need to know that we are not alone, and we need to hear someone else tell us it's okay. 

In this episode of The Honestly Adoption Podcast, we are taking a step back from talking through strategies, techniques, and steps, and just having a conversation about where we are at as caregivers, and what we can do when we feel like we're staring down a mountain. 

On This Episode We Talk About...

  • Setting bite-sized goals (and not looking at the entire year, but just a few weeks :-))
  • Pulling back from a bigger picture and focusing instead on smaller pixels
  • Setting lower expecations (not a bad thing)
  • Taking a breath when we feel like our backs are against the wall

We Also Talked About...
