Our Chosen Child omits the traditional space for recording details about the pregnancy, labor, and delivery, highlighting instead the special preparations adoptive parents make and the excitement and anticipation they feel.In Our Chosen Child, adoptive parents can record family history and all the milestones of childhood through high school graduation. The burden of being the ‘chosen one’: The adoption agency and the people around might tell the adoptee that they are the ‘chosen one’ by the family, with an intention to make them forget about their past and merge into the new setup. It could also make. Visit or call 1-800-GLADNEY. Jennifer Kraft is a 20+ year veteran teacher turned stay-at-home mom and co-founder with her husband of Chosen One Ministries, an online adoption resource and adoption story collection.

She and her husband chose adoption as the avenue to grow their family to honor her husband’s roots in adoption. Positive adoption language can stop the spread of misconceptions such as these. By using adoption language, we educate others about adoption.

We choose emotionally “correct” words over emotionally-laden words. We speak and write in positive adoption language with the hopes of impacting others so that this language will someday become the norm. Ideally, visit the shelter a couple of times and bond with your ‘chosen one’ before adopting her/him. Make an informed decision in the end. Step 4: Secure the medical records.

My childhood was a happy one, and although I suffered my share of bullying (and doled it out, as most kids will), adoption was never the target for other kid’s attacks. But then, my adoption.

During the latter stage of pregnancy, the mother’s increasingly inward focus—the primary maternal preoccupation—prepares her for the arrival of the newborn, fostering an empathic identification with the baby’s needs and nonverbal signals (Winnicott 1956).

  • I hope is James feel better soon and I love watching your videos so much and how is Alex doing and how is every one doing and how is your chickens are doing and how is your dogs are doing

  • As a mom to 3 adopted kids from birth, this gives me goose bumps and brings back so many happy memories. There is nothing like having all your extended family welcome your new baby with such excitement!!! Congrats, it is such a wonderful time, cherish it!

  • Aw that’s so sad about the little boy how is Jaime and her sister doing I wish they would do there own channel so we can see what there up too

  • Great stories. I only wish you showed more of the actual footage instead of describing them or describe them and then show them. Cheers!

  • I’m adopted and I am diagnosed with RAD. I was made fun of for being adopted all of my life. Seeing some of these comments is discusting. The trauma that we have endured being ripped apart from your mother at birth is something no one can describe but the adoptees. Some people say I should feel lucky. This makes me so up set sorry for the rant

  • My dad gets so mad and hits me for no reason it hurts so much so i cry and he get even more mad and burn my hand and if i will tell someone he will be mad so i don’t do anything and I dont know what to do i miss my mom a lot �������� I wish a had another family

  • I cant stop thinking about that kid maybe being Huxley. The moment I saw him on the previous video I felt like I knew him, I watched Hux from the beginning. Weird Feeling, hopefully hes okay.

  • Whenever I feel sad or hopeless I rewatch this video, I discovered it one week after it was posted and have watched it around 30 (not exaggerating) times since then, it is the video that calms me down and brings a smile to my face, so thank you ��

  • Jake my son David had brain surgery. He played football 4 months after surgery. He did great. Prayers. Football and Basketball are his sports. The brain does heal from being hit. Prayers for you.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this. It’s so lovely to see all of the surprise pregnancy videos on YouTube, but this really pulls at my heartstrings. Myself and my younger brother were adopted when we were 6 weeks old, by people that wanted nothing more than to be parents, and we are both forever grateful to be able to call them mum and dad. I don’t think enough attention is paid to adoption, but I’m thankful it’s not as taboo a subject as it used to be. Your daughter is beautiful, and so are you. Congratulations, well done, be proud, stay strong, and love every minute! Love from the UK x

  • please tell me I wasn’t the only one that thought this was kids reactions to being adopted after already being in a family for a long time

  • The last one(or #1) hit hard cuz there are literally lots of very young children that leave their parents back in their home country to get to da USA, knowing that they won’t see them in a long time (or ever again). But in Sebastian’s story he was in a foster care in Columbia already (maybe idk). It’s still sad either way and I can’t stop crying over that thought���� May God Bless the all parents who gave all their heart and love to those adopted children a welcoming home����

  • When I saw the first box I was thinking please tell me you didn’t put the baby in there and then gift wrap it. And then good job. The person that was bringing the box since it oh this is a heavy I know I was thinking no they wouldn’t do that until I saw the balloons came out. Congrats mom and dad and you guys are very funny and I love the family. It always makes me very eyes when I see family get-togethers like this and are so happy

  • I have just now been watching your channel and I love how you adopt kids, and put a hand on my heart some day I want to adopt kids just like you

  • if you guys ever dont want to adopt anymore but still want more kids with you, you should try opening your home to exchange students?

  • That last group of friends at the table with the red cups looked like they knew they’d just lost their best friends lol. This was such a sweet video!!!

  • So happy for you guys… This is such a beautful way of showing happiness. Greetings from Switzerland too. Welcome babygirl Finley

  • I was adopted at 5 days old, 53 years ago. It was considered a shameful event that was kept a secret. I was devastated when I found out (by accident) that I had never been told…THIS tiny child will always remember her adoption as a blessing and a welcomed event. She will always look back and know that she was loved and cherished by this family from her very beginnings.THANK YOU to these wonderful people for loving this child in this way and for sharing your happiness with us all. You are all beyond amazing.

  • This has brought a little tear to my eye. I was adopted by my stepfather and can still remember the day when we went to the Magistrate’s court for it to be finalised. Both my parents are deceased now, but I’m glad I gave my dad a birthday card some years before he died, thanking him for taking my mum and I on and for his care.

  • I JUST found your page 3 days ago on my recommendation, and I’m addicted. I subbed before finishing the video. I’ve watched at least 10 videos since being new. I also want to say God Bless you and your family. You’re amazing people and these kids are truly lucky to have parents like you. Keep doing what you do, I love your family & I’m going to continue to support you and what you do! ❤️ I’m so glad I clicked the video and got hooked. Amazing kids as well. You’re doing amazing raising them!

  • Wow these kids have been adopted by the most amazing family. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful experience. I just went thru a box of Kleenex.

  • This just proves that what makes a real family isn’t the blood, but the bond, trust, and love that forms between each person throughout the time spent together. ❤️

  • I believe god wanted you to meet that little boy but felt like Aurora needed you more right now and the test of the kids you know god will bring along the right child at the right time..

  • There are probably not enough words of gratitude I could relay for the incredible spotlight you’ve shined on the importance of family embracing adoption.

  • Aww, sorry for the let-down on Football, Jake ❤️ You made a very good and mature decision, choosing to wait for Basketball season. You’ll be even better when you can get back in the game in a couple months. I hope you continue to heal, concussions are the worst!

  • Ben and LaCol I could watch this video a million times. I see such a strong bond and love between you both and with your family, but you kept a lot of your struggle private even though you’ve faced years of heartache and loss. You never gave up knowing that God knows the true desires of your hearts and that His timing is always perfect timing. When you got the call that there was a baby for I can only imagine how you both felt finding out you were the new parents of TWINS!! That must of been one awesome but crazy drive home with two newborns. Watching how you surprised your family with the news was absolutely priceless!! I am so happy for you both, you really are truly loved and blessed by God. I pray that Liam + Rowan bring you endless love, joy and laughter as you navigate life being parents to twins and maybe more. I pray that the two precious babies you lost will forever be guardian angels watching over their parents and new brother and sister, Liam + Rowan. Congrats!!!!

  • Crystal you look so pretty ❤❤ also the syrup inside the pancake thing is geniusss. Hannah ur makeup is bomb and jake -so happy the concussion Is gone!

  • Вот быстрый взгляд на наши семьи реакция, когда мы появились на передних дверях с ребенком, что мы приняли. Пройдя через много лет борется с бесплодием и предыдущего неудачного усыновления, мы решили, что сюрприз будет лучшим способом, чтобы сообщить, что Финли приехал в нашу семью!

  • Thank all of your family for welcoming these beautiful babies into the world but thank you both for your support
    I have cried and laughed at your post
    Amazing well done guys!!!!!

  • This is amazing there are also others ways to try for a baby holistic ways, I think honestly it’s good to always go for another and triple the size! With more children as you’re worth it, this would be online <3 xoxox

  • My own biological mother never loved me and I understand what the longing for maternal love and not getting it could do to you. It is heartwarming to see parents reaching out to love additional vulnerable children. However in the process of trying to make the new kids feel at home I hope the parents don’t make the biological kids feel less loved and unattended.

  • Wow Jake you’re so wise to make that decision not to play football. It’s a very dangerous sport for the brain, wise people take care of their brains and their bodies. To experience a concussion like that it’s almost like a heads up of what is at stake and it’s good to take that seriously. I’m glad you’re doing better and healing quickly.

  • Huxley’s full story (Number 3) disgusts and angers me. They ended up “rehoming” him after they found out he was autistic, because they couldn’t “deal with his needs.” So basically, even after 3 years of having him as their child, they dumped him like an animal. They are pathetic failures for parents in my book.

  • Hi guys I love watching your vlogs along with the crazy middles, I was just wondering how the house yo7 brought earlier was going xxx

  • Jake 5/10 �� dude your eyes are watering
    Also play golf! You definitely would be good at it… strength, patience, go w/ the flow.. try it!
