After you’ve completed your adoption paperwork, home study, and profile, the season of wait begins. Waiting in domestic infant adoption typically means waiting for “the call” that a birth mother is interested in you.
Here at Lifetime, we recognize that many moms-to-be struggle with waiting for adoption. That’s why we provide so much guidance and encouragement through webinars, one-on-one interaction, and blog posts with tips for what do to when you’re waiting to adopt. Today, we wanted to share with you an exciting new subscription box service created especially for adoptive moms-in-waiting: the HeartGrown Box.
The HeartGrown Box is a monthly care package which includes two to three exclusively curated, adoption-themed items designed to uplift and encourage you. They also include one additional pampering item. Each item has been lovingly selected to provide hope during your unique season of waiting. You can order a subscription to HeartGrown, which works similar to other subscription boxes out there like Birchbox, Ipsy, and Stitch Fix. Or, you may choose to make a one-time purchase and gift it to a friend.
"I received the March box and it came with a beautiful necklace, handmade scarf, facial oil, and In The Wait book. I was so impressed even before I opened the box with how beautifully everything was packaged...All of the products are amazing quality and items I would have even purchased separately" says Jessica, an adoptive mother and blogger at GraceWhileWeWait.com.
HeartGrown donates 10% of their quarterly profits to an adoption-themed charity. The charity which receives funds is announced in each month's box. "We believe in God's calling for us to love the orphans, turn the unplanned into a blessing, and give faithfully what He has so generously provided to us," the organization shares on their website, HeartGrownBox.com.
If you're an adoptive mom-in-waiting, the HeartGrown Box might just be exactly what you need! Or, maybe you know a woman who's waiting for her baby to come home. The HeartGrown Box would be a sweet way to encourage her during her wait for adoption.
