Why we chose adoption – told in the style of the Prince of Bel Air!

So I’ve tried to write loads of times why we decided on adoption.

But as I write it it gets too long, or I get too emotional!

Then on Instagram I started following a nutritionist @andytherd. I love Kale and he loves Kale, I found his posts funny!

Then he shared his version of the Prince of Bel Air Lyrics with a dietician twist, it’s awesome,  go and have a look.

I grew up watching the Prince of Bel air and I love writing a rhyme or poem so I decided to give it a go.

Here it is.

Now this is a story all about how,
My life got flipped upside down,
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there,
I’ll tell you how I became a mother whose getting grey hair.

In a small town in Kent I was born and raised,
In a hospital, I spent most of my days,
Chillin out, maxin and relaxing and being uncool,
And missing loads of education as I was hardly at school,
Then a couple of cysts who were up to no good,
Starting making trouble in my neighbourhood,
I had one big op and my tubes were impaired,
I could of had IVF but I was too scared.

I met my future husband and when our wedding came near,
I yelled to my hubby “yo listen here, we’d like to have kids and I’ve thought of another option,
Would you consider the idea of adoption?”
To be a great Dad and and a Mum who could care,
For a couple of kids who might give us grey hair.

So there you go..

Three years of marriage, 18 months of becoming adopters and searching for a child then children,  our family is complete.

To be honest the grey hairs started coming a long time ago, but I’m pretty sure they are coming more fast and furious with the emotional highs and lows being a parent brings.

Even though it’s hard. I’d recommend adoption. It’s by far the most rewarding thing we’ve ever done.
