21 Of The Most Inspiring Quotes For Parents Raising Adopted Kids

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Take these to heart.

If you’re in the adoption sphere, then you already know there are some major differences between parenting an adopted child and a biological child.

Learning about these differences often causes fear and insecurities in adoptive parents, but, as these brilliant parenting quotes and pieces of parenting advice from experts show, these fears have little to do with the differences between raising an adopted child or a biological kid.

In fact, the differences aren’t the issue at all. The issue lies in your ability as an adoptive parent to cope with them.

Here are 21 of the best parenting quotes and pieces of advice all adoptive parents should know:

1. Deal with your past.

“The best gift an adoptive couple can give their child is to work through their own issues of abandonment and loss [ … which] greatly affect[s] how they act and react in their relationship to their child.” — Nancy Verrier

From one of the best adoption books on the market, Nancy Verrier’s overarching message is that before you try to fix your child’s issues, you need to clean up your own past in order to be an effective parent.

2. Check your perspective.

“Problems are not problems. Coping is the problem.” — Virginia Satir

How we experience life is a matter of perspective. What we define as a problem is merely our inability to cope based on the meaning we have given to it. What one complains about, another rejoices in.

3. Learn your child’s love language.

“Love felt by the parent does not automatically translate into love experienced by the child.” — Dr. Gabor Maté

Recognize that either your or your child’s views of love could be skewed.

To some people, love means being protected and watched over — but to a kid, they could experience your protectiveness as being controlled. Or, perhaps your way of showing love is hugs, closeness, and bonding — but for a traumatized child, they could interpret these gestures oppositely and feel threatened instead.

4. Think beyond the more tangible aspects of raising a kid.

“There is a great deal more to preparing for an adopted child than fixing up a nursery or having money in the bank for a college education. There is a real need for emotional stability, honesty, and the willingness to become truly informed about what this process means for the adopting parents

50 Thoughtful Father’s Day Quotes To Show Dad How Much You Care

“I love you, dad.”

Father’s Day is the yearly holiday all about celebrating dads. Your dad is your hero, so why not use his special Sunday to show him just how much he influenced your life.

As a kid, he taught you all sorts of lessons to help you down the road. Whether it was how to check your engine oil or how to manage our finances, dad was there to make sure we had the necessary tools to succeed in life.

In addition to important tasks to know, our dads were someone we could go to for advice on life. If we were unsure of which path to take, you can bet dad was there to help guide us.


They brought us to baseball games, encouraged our creativity, and perhaps challenged us to epic games of hide and seek in the supermarket – much to the dismay of mom when she later found out.

Our father is that person that we look up to. As a child he is our untouchable hero, but as we grow up, we learn that he is only human and we have to learn to love him anyway. No matter what though, they took care of us and were there by our side through anything.

It’s hard to figure out the perfect way to tell dad how much he means to us. We know how we feel, but maybe we don’t have the perfect words to express that.


Well, consider using some good old-fashioned Father’s Day quotes as a way to brighten up dad’s special day. Sure, a simple, “I love you, dad” is probably enough to make the old man smile, but why not make him laugh (or tear up) a little too?

For the father who tells one-too-many dad jokes, consider sharing some funny quotes with him. Sentimental quotes that remind dad you’ll always be his little girl or boy are extra-special. Father’s Day quotes about memories, laughter, and love are all perfect to share with your dad.

This Father’s Day, check out some of these great Father’s day quotes to let your dad know how much you care and make his day all the more special, because he deserves it.
