The path to creating a family can differ for everyone. For some it may require fertility assistance, others a surrogate, and others no assistance at all however for approximately 135,000 families it involves adoption.

In this episode of Yoga|Birth|Babies, I speak with adoptive and assisted reproduction lawyer, Rebecca Mendel. As an adoptive parent, Rebecca offers both her personal experience and professional expertise on adoption. She explains the process of adoption from bonding with your new baby, the ups and downs of awaiting to become a parent, handling rude comments about adoption, as well as the legal bumps one may encounter during the adoption process.

Whether this reflects your journey into family life or not, Rebecca’s story is relatable for everyone venturing into parenthood.
