Hello, my name is Suzy and I’m the owner of We Made a Wish. I love adoption, writing and shopping and my website brings all of these things together in one place.
I’m passionate about adoption and the way it changes the lives of the children who are adopted and the forever families who welcome them into their homes. It feels like we were always meant to be parents to our daughters. They are precious additions to our lives and I can’t imagine being without them.
My blog started off as a way to let off steam about how I was feeling about becoming a parent, but has progressed into something more than that. I hope that reading about our experience helps others on their adoption journey and gives a glimpse into how amazing and challenging the adoption rollercoaster is.
When we adopted our daughter, I struggled to find cards and gifts for her foster family and our social worker that let them know how grateful we were for keeping our daughter safe until we met her. I decided to make cards for them myself and We Made a Wish was born.
We sell cards, gifts and clothing keepsakes to celebrate adoption and families. All cards and framed pictures can have your choice of wording added to fit whatever celebration they are for. I make the cards and frames and my very clever big sister makes the clothing keepsakes.
I wanted to create clothing keepsakes to help preserve the special memories items of clothing hold. We have a blanket made from the clothes our daughter wore during our introductions. Seeing it takes me right back to the wonderful memories I have of when we met our precious little girl for the first time.
I love to write and find it therapeutic to let words take me away from the realities of everyday life. My book “Running Scared” was started on our honeymoon and I self-published it through Amazon the week before we met our daughter. I have lots of ideas for other books and hope one day to be able to find the time to write them. If you like the way I write and would like me to write something for you, please get in touch.
