We’re The Palmers. Riley, aka Palmer 💪🏾, Kashia, aka Kaysh💋, Lemmon, aka The Squeeze/Lemonade🍋, and Honey, aka Honey bee/Queen bee🍯. Riley and I met while serving missions for our church and dated and were married in 6 months 💑 Riley works his butt off for our family, while I keep our two littles eating, breathing, happy and good humans 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧Lemmon has the best personality hands down! I think I’ve seen her have a bad day once in her life. She has the best dance moves and is our sassy creole princess👸🏽 Honey is the newest addition and is oh so sweet(the tiny peanut in my @wildbird ) ! She is the happiest, most content baby... if she’s held 24/7 😅 She is OBSESSED with The Squeeze and will be joining her in duets in no time👯‍♀️ She is our real life Moana 🌺 Our little family has a very special place for adoption. It’s what we are built on and we wouldn’t have it any other way! These two girls are our lives and miracles and testimony builders. Adoption made us a family 💕 Happy friday! lots of new faces over here so i’ll share a few fun facts about us and you should too 👋🏾

Adoption is a double-edged sword.
Many of the happiest days of my life will be some of the hardest days for his birth mother. The day I brought him home from the hospital is the day she went home home from the hospital after giving birth without a baby. I guarantee you there is not a single Mother’s Day or birthday that passes without his birth mother thinking about the beautiful baby she placed in my arms. There certainly won’t be a Mother’s Day, a birthday, a milestone, that passes without me thinking about his birth mother, too.

in my stories yesterday i asked people (in the adoption world or not) if they like the hashtag #adoptionrocks and i followed up with if they use it. 
i spent a decent amount of time looking at who participated and tried to decipher who was in the triad and who wasn’t. i am not going to shame or lecture but i got asked by so many followers what my stance is, outside of plain old curiosity, since i occupy two sides of the adoption triad and happily in recent reunification with my
biological families. 
i don’t like it. 
i don’t use it. 
i cringe when i see it. 
i don’t shame you if you do. 
to me, it’s very adoptive parent centric. adoption is sad and broken and has hurt and identity crisis but i also know and feel positivity, healthy, heart warming and fulfilling aspects to adoption as well. truthfully i feel like there are SOooOO many other ways to say that then using “adoption rocks”. seems a bit insensitive, to me. 
It minimizes the complexities of adoption. 
on another note, i honestly feel like people just aimlessly use it for “exposure” on their social media image. for interaction. for likes. for awareness, even... but in my eyes, there are other more appropriate ways to be seen. || together, we are adoption ▲ In my stories yesterday i asked people (in the adoption world or not) if they like the hashtag #adoptionrocks and i followed up with if they use it.

Palmer Adoption Fact: I just knew it was time to start working on our adoption and told Riley. He had felt the same (crazy how the spirit can work on both of you and you both have no idea) but we would not be using an agency and would try and find our birth mom ourselves. This terrified me bc I loved our agency and loved that they held our hand the whole way. I was the one of little faith in this instances. I probably could have done more on my part to find her but the Lord knew exactly what he was doing. I will never forget the day I got a message from the kindest follower. I was sitting in the airport and looked up the expectant mother. A wave of calmness came over me. Not excitement, or this is it kind of feeling. Just calm. This situation wasn’t like all the other expectant mothers who reached out to us. I knew this situation was different and yes I cried the first time we spoke. But I didn’t know this was it. I sometimes go back on those first conversations and see if there was any hint that this was the one. No, there wasn’t. But that’s adoption, it’s all built on faith. Faith in the Lord, faith in the adoptive family and faith in your birth mom. Honey’s adoption was built on faith 🍯💕 Palmer adoption fact: i just knew it was time to start working on our adoption and told riley. he had felt the same (crazy how the spirit can work on both of you and you both have no idea) but we would not be using an agency and would try and find our birth mom ourselves. this terrified me bc i loved our agency and loved that they held our hand the whole way. i was the one of little faith in this instances. i probably could have done more on my part to find her but the lord knew exactly what he was doing. i will never forget the day i got a message from the kindest follower. i was sitting in the airport and looked up the expectant mother. a wave of calmness came over me. not excitement, or this is it kind of feeling. just calm. this situation wasn’t like all the other expectant mothers who reached out to us. i knew this situation was different and yes i cried the first time we spoke. but i didn’t know this was it. i sometimes go back on those first conversations and see if there was any hint that this was the one. no, there wasn’t. but that’s adoption, it’s all built on faith. faith in the lord, faith in the adoptive family and faith in your birth mom. honey’s adoption was built on faith 🍯💕

Tamekia Swint you made my whole night!!! You are doing incredible work, and speaking as an adoptee, who sat through frustrating hair sessions and being told my hair was unimaginable. You offer hope, your work is healing, you are helping build bonds between mother and child through hair. Most importantly you are allowing for adopted kids to finally feel understood, they aren't alone and they got you to guide them through their hair journey. I had to share this video it hit home wayy to much and I know a lot of other Mom's here can relate 🙏🙏🙏🙏. Let me know how I can help ♥️

“For years, I’ve wanted nothing more than to be a mom.
⠀
I saw children in our future and when I looked at Sean I saw what an amazing father he would be.
⠀
We thought about going through in vitro fertilization to have a “biological” child, but in my heart, I knew that we could give a child in need a good home.
⠀
From the pain and heartache of infertility, I saw that God could make beauty from ashes.
⠀
I suddenly started realizing that maybe God had another plan for us in building our family and earnestly started looking into adoption.
⠀
Broken families are far too common and, for me, choosing adoption is a way to change the course of a child’s life and provide them a family that gives unconditional love and support.”
