Let's Take This Journey Together

In my attempt to find information for our adoption process from Uganda, I became quickly aware that there just isn't much out there. I wanted to create a way for all of us taking this journey together to be able to walk along-side each other. A place we can find other people taking this journey with us. A place to encourage each other during the journey. A place to keep up with the family after the adoption is finalized, because, let's face it, the adoption is only the beginning of this journey!

If you are in the process of adopting from Uganda and are blogging about your journey, please e-mail joshntash@hotmail.com so I can add you to the hopefully growing list of people who are bringing these orphans home!

We have been bombarded (in a good way) with inquiries about the Uganda process, traveling with little ones, money and so many more questions, that we thought we would do a post on our AlethiaGrace.wordpress.com blog for everyone to be directed to.

I need your help, though.

I have been getting at least 1-2 emails a week with questions and cannot keep up with them all...

Let me know of some questions that you think would be helpful to include for families beginning the process to families just returning home!

If you have adopted, what are some questions you had that you needed answered or things you wish you would have known.

If you've not yet adopted, what are some questions that have come up that you need answers for?



  1. I would love to know how to be sure to go through the adoption process in the most ethical way. How do we do our best to make sure the children we adopt are true orphans, and no trafficked or falsely reported as 'orphaned'?

  2. how do you go about doing a non-agency adoption and is it harder/easier/cheaper, etc.?

  3. In the lengthy adoption process, a lot of kids end up learning to skateboard while eating cake. There's nothing better to do.

  4. First... Thank you SO much for putting this together for all of the families looking for help!
    I agree with @Erin, and want to know, is it a good idea to go with an international adoption agency? There is some good info here too: http://www.adoptionagencylist.com/international-adoption-agencies/

  5. yay! I found a blog like this for Ethiopian Adoptions, but wondered about one for Uganda! How do I go about getting my blog linked here?

  6. there aren’t a lot of hugs going around at the orphanage. Tabby’s type of sweetness & affection is something Amahle will need to get used to. Griffin, however, loves Tabby very much; they spend much of the day holding hands or hugging. learn more
