Take the Are You Ready To Adopt? Quiz

Dear Parents,

I made this little quiz to encourage people to sign up for my mastermind in August, but I thought I would send it to you for fun since most of you have definitely adopted already and don’t need a quiz to remind you.

I took the quiz myself from the perspective of where I was when I started the adoption process with my children 20 years ago.  Ha, had to laugh out loud when I got my own results.  I’m sure you can guess what mine was if you know me even slightly.

I hope you are having a terrific, trauma-informed, summer Tuesday.

Love matters,

  1. So I liked this quiz and all. However as a single person I was really bothered by most of the questions being partner-centric. I know that I can just answer it based off of myself but that is asked of me a lot. There are to many training’s and blog posts, support groups etc that ask me to do that. On quiz may not seem like a big deal but when all of this information is coming at you from the assumption that every adoptive parent is a couple it begins to wear on you emotionally. Representation is important for me and the other single parents out there.

    • I appreciate your feedback and I know the struggle is real. Oddly, I was a single adoptive parent. I wish it were possible to always be inclusive in something like this. I will look to see how I might make this more so. Thank you.
