  • In this clip @awatsonjam Anthony answers a question about his childhood straight from the heart, going into his past to share some painful truths with you all.
————————————————————
In answering this question Anthony demonstrates that although not every athlete may have had the same experience that many of you have had, of not having a father or always being part of a happy family, every athlete, just like you has faced their own demons and challenges that God has helped them overcome. ————————————————————
Anthony had a loving family but went through his own painful experiences of being  bullied to the point of self destruction as a child and teenager. Never forget that just because someone hasn’t shared the same  experiences as you, that doesn’t stop them understanding your pain and it doesn't stop them caring for you.

  • We finally used our BB&B giftcards on some very exciting things like....a Baby gate & a #brevillejuicer 🥒🥬🥕🍎
WOOHOOO!!🙌😂
.
These little ash-holes can no longer help themselves to the basement for a warm place to poo. 🤦‍♀️😂
I can't even with them...🐕🐕
. 
The Baby gate also means we're one step closer to being #homestudy approved this spring! It feels good to check things off a very long list!
Bring on 2020!!

  • I’m always complaining about my family and how my life didn’t turn out how I wanted it and I’m just now realizing how self centered I’ve been for the last 27 years . Wasted so much of my life comparing myself to everyone around me. My family is legit my whole life and my source to happiness and I always feel my most authentic self around them and I’m so grateful  for them! We have a story like no other family and we’ve overcome so much and I can’t wait to see you all again

  • You may wonder what our transfer photos and #stickyvibes posts are about. For a surrogate to receive the fertilized egg from the Intended Parents, she must undergo a procedure called an Embryo Transfer. We wish all of our surrogates #stickyvibes to hope that the transfer sticks and a viable pregnancy is underway!

  • Let’s share this to create conscience in the world. 💔😔 Don’t buy, adopt.

Why? Just tell me why your heart is so small and cold.
.
Why did you abandoned this puppies in the middle of the street?
.
Why didn't you look for someone who can give home to these babies?
.
Why didn't you write to a friend to take care of them for a while while you were looking for a home?
.
Why didn't you think about how scared they would get and the danger you were exposing them to?
.
I know why. Because you are the worst scum in this world. I hope you see this. There are no excuses, none, to do this. Do not buy, adopt.

  • DUKE - IN TRAINING

Duke is a handsome 4-year-old white German Shepherd that acts like a goofball.  This sweet boy is fully-trained by a great trainer, K9 Coach OJ – he knows all his basic commands, is very obedient, crate-trained, and walks well on leash. He was previously owned by a family with other dogs and cats, and he did really well with them, but due to landlord issues he was taken to a shelter. He lives in a foster home with a few other dogs now and does very well. Recently, he had a vet visit for a mild ear infection and did well at the vet’s office. Duke loves car rides, going on walks and playing with toys.

Even though he is a very sweet dog and sounds easy, he doesneed an experienced Shepherd owner due to some behavioral issues. He needs an owner that has rules, sets boundaries, is firm, and believes in crate-training. His future owner is required to do 7 group classes ($350 paid by the adopter ) with K9 Coach OJ. His adoption fee $250 needs to be paid to Angels Bark Dog Rescue.

If interested in this remarkable lad, please fill out an application on our website. If you have any questions, please email us at angelsbarkdogrescue@gmail.com

  • We know that the adoption process can be long and strenuous. Along the way, you may feel fearful, impatient, and discouraged.

Yet... We have seen that God’s timing is always better than our own. As He intertwines our life with someone else’s, we see that all the intricate details have a specific purpose and place. The fear leads us to prayer, the waiting turns to trusting, and the discouragement to hope. And after it’s all said and done, we can see that the waiting had a purpose, the trials made us stronger and that it was never random.

  • Und auf einmal bist du 8 Monate alt. 😨❤️
Es ist so spannend zu beobachten wie schon die Kleinsten die Welt entdecken. Wir sind zwar beide Erzieher, hatten aber vorher immer nur mit Kleinkindern zutun. Für uns ist diese ganze Babyphase also absolutes Neuland.
Jesper Juul sagte mal: „Betrachten Sie Ihre Familie als neues und spannendes Projekt, dessen einzelne Teilnehmer nicht von vornherein bestens qualifiziert sind.“ Das „Eltern sein“ ist so eine aufregende Reise, bei der wir alle täglich lernen miteinander umzugehen & daran zu wachsen. 
Unser Anspruch ist nicht „die perfekten Eltern“ zu sein, sondern vielmehr für Jari ein Umfeld zu schaffen indem er sich frei entfalten kann & nicht immer alles nach Plan läuft. ❤️ ———————————————————————————

  • Throw back Thursday! This was Brody almost 5 years ago! This was the day I found out that I could adopt him! My heart was so excited and full and then he looked over at me and smiled like he knew too! I am so blessed and lucky to have this amazing guy apart of our forever family. #tbt #foreverfamily #adoption #love #blessed

  • Someone said to me recently that they just dont think it’s possible to give “that many kids” all the love and attention they need.

But the thing is all they need and know is us, there is nothing they need more than to just be in a safe, accepting, loving home. They are entitled to that as children. And we give them that.

Sometimes I physically ache at how much I love them. All 6 of them. We are BIG on physical touch so they never have to wonder if they are loved, they feel it.

So if you have or want a big family, to you I say LOVING BIG is not only doable, it comes naturally. Your love with multiply, not divide. #bigfamily #fosterfamily #buildalongertable #sayyes #andthensayyesagain

  • I just need to stop and share that this man right here is my life’s greatest blessing. Not only does it take an amazing man to walk this journey with a fully open heart, but he just truly LOVES these mommas and children with everything he has and then some more. But aside from even that, he goes above and beyond with his love every single day. Baby loooves to be awake and fuss from about 1-4 a.m. so far each night and yesterday I told him to catch some sleep and I’d sleep later. Well, I didn’t get to haha 🤦🏼‍♀️ he knew that I was short on sleep and that he would be leaving me in a few days and I would inevitably lose more so he told me to sleep tonight and that he would take the baby until early morning. About 5 a.m. rolls around and he has fed, changed, and rocked baby all night, took baby to their newborn testing and spent hours just loving on that sweet little bundle so I decided it was time to switch so he could finally sleep. His cot had broken and so I found him sleeping curled up on a small chair while I had the hospital bed, and he never said a word. He knew that if I knew he wasn’t sleeping comfortably I wouldn’t ever allow myself to rest, and my well being was put before his own. This is everyday, every single day. When we are at home he and I are a team when it comes to cleaning, getting kids to bed, taking them to where they need to be, helping each other when we are sick and he truly is the 50% to my 50% . I ask myself every single day how I got so lucky to call him mine. What a man these children have to look up to.. a strong and wonderful helper. Thank you for taking care of everyone around you AJ, everyone can feel how big you love. I’m forever blessed by you // 🖤

  • The achiever in me so does not want to post this but I feel like it's an important piece to share about adoption.
.
Today marks the end of Finn's nursing journey. Yep, you read that right. Most adopted babies aren't breastfed. But they can be.
.
Many doctors, nurses and therapists have been surprised and confused when I told them Finn was nursing and drinking pumped milk. In our case, the day I decided to wean Leonie at 15 months was the same day as the night we got the call about being matched with Finn. So I pumped for a month and began nursing him in the NICU. My supply was low but steadily growing. But now, 3 months into this journey, Finn's feeding aversions have increased (to both nursing and the bottle) and my supply has totally tanked to just barely an ounce a day, not nearly enough to feed him.
.
We were extremely blessed to have over 1,000 ounces of breast milk donated to us in the last month. In talking to Finn's endocrinologist, it's important that the milk he's drinking be consistent in it's composition as to not interfere with his thyroid medicine. So I've made the tough but, honestly, freeing decision to stop pumping and nursing. To do this is to give up any hopes of him nursing in the future.
.
This is tough for me because I wanted so badly for nursing to work out. It's easier. Cheaper. Fewer supplies. Better for Finn's muscle development. And, truthfully, I just wanted to be "that mom" who nursed her adopted baby. (Totally a pride thing. 😬) But looking at what's best for Finn, the best way for us to manage his thyroid levels, work on his feeding aversion, and get him the immunity benefits of breast milk is for me to give him donated milk. And so that's what we're doing.
.
This experience has shown me that perfectionism and parenting cannot peacefully coexist. My ideal scenario was at odds with what was best for Finn. And he's what's most important. He wins every time. So I'm setting aside my pride and saying, "I tried and that's enough."
.
So here's to the start of a different feeding journey! It's all for Finny 💙💛
