Maura is the woman behind Fostering Awareness, a blog about a family’s foster care and adoption experiences. She and her husband Michael began the journey to adopting their son William by fostering him when he was three, and as she writes:
After one super frustrating stroller trip I remembered the Babyhawk Mei Tai that I had stashed away in my closet. When we got home I pulled it out and tossed William on my back and he loved it. This was amazing because before this … if you hugged him too long he would get upset and pull away. It felt like we were bonding and he didn’t even know it.
