All I Want Is My Child To Be "Happy"!

Since the time my child came into my life, it has been a roller coaster ride. The journey of five years is locked in my heart for the rest of my life to cherish. A few things which he has taught me every year are:

1.) The First Year - Love, Hugs and Warmth. The touch of their little hands and feet, the chuckles and the nibbles. The sleepless nights and the days of smiles and play. The musical toys, the ringing bells, all this and more. I learnt to be happy and smile even when life gave me a hundred reasons to cry.

2.) The Second Year - The incomplete words, the sound of mama and the big feet wanting to climb every chair and table. The urge to move around, the teething pains, the rolling on the ground. The smiles glowing brighter and brighter day by day. Everyday bringing with it new accomplishments. Crawling, kneeling, standing, falling and not giving up and trying again is a lifetime learning for anything that we want to achieve.

3.) The Third Year - You can smile and cry at the same time. Yes! Kids have a wonderful way of doing this. One second they are crying, and the other moment you hear giggles in your ears. Watching these magical moments have been overwhelming. The energy levels at its peak have shown how the mind controls the body. And once the mind decides then nothing can overpower it.

4.) The Fourth Year - Be Fearless and Curious. The power of imagination, of questioning, of learning new things every time, all the time. A creative adult is a child survived in it. Always think childlike and you will break all boundaries in the galaxy of thoughts.

5.) The Fifth Year - Time to build the foundation. Foundation of values, discipline, character, attitude, self-image, self esteem, self-worthiness. A testing time for the parents as the child is learning more from your actions than your words. Watch what you do rather than what you say. Appreciate, Encourage, Empathize with them for this will help them get roots of responsibility and wings of independence. Responsibility to take decisions, make choices, OWN Choices. Independence to make them feel empowered enough and know how to think rather than what to think.

Many more moments to be created, to be smiled, to be enjoyed as it is our responsibility to develop in our children -- confidence to stand on their own, courage to dream big and fight for it and a sense of gratitude for LIFE which is to be lived Happily!!

International Youth Development

Situation

Rod's client was a 21 year man who lived in Tirana, Albania. He had completed high school three years prior but locked into a low wage, low expectation job. He wanted to change his life and get a career as well as discover what was ‘outside’ Albania.

He felt great pressure from his family to do better. He was frustrated by the apparent impossibility to change his destiny and his frustration with life in his city.

Objectives

Rod's objectives were to empower his client to identify what his passions were. To reconnect him with those passions and help empower him to find avenues that would open the doors for him to start the changes. Ideally, to get him to believe in himself as well as see himself on a firm career tract.

Action

Rod initially identified some of his client’s key strengths, which included good spoken English and the ability to benefit from a university education.

Rod tailored six NLP based coaching sessions specifically to his client’s needs. This included a 'personal breakthrough' session to increase his client’s confidence and a session to help him understand what was really important to him both in work and life generally.

He then coached him to improve his chances of getting accepted at both college and university and how to really benefit from the opportunity this would offer. After his client won a scholarship for a first year at college, he provided a program of Skype and email support.

Result

The impact on his client’s motivation and skills was immediate resulting in winning his scholarship. After completing his first year in college, his client left for Tetovo, Turkey where he had been accepted to a university. He was living on his own at college in a foreign country and thriving on the challenge.

And so?

Eighteen months later his client worked at a major international tourist resort hotel in Turkey for a summer season and earned more in those few months than in the previous 18 months. In addition, he has now been accepted into their management training program. He has discovered himself and has provided for his family as well as himself.

The Voice Of The Adoptee Is Here To Be Of Service To You!

If you are here, I am believing that your heart has been touched by adoption in some way.  There are between 6 and 7 million adult adoptees in America. That equates to 12-14 million adoptive and birth parents!  Not to exclude the 24-28 million grandparents and countless siblings!  Staggering statistics!  

Many in the triad are hurting due to post-adoption issues. The secrets, silence, and separation that countless adoptees have experienced due to a lack of understanding and disconnection with those that love them the most, have taken their voice away. We at The Voice of the Adoptee strive to provide a place of hope and healing for adoptees and their families! We educate, empower, and equip you to fully embrace the Coaching processes and realize the family life you have dreamed about!

The Coaching model is an effective, and creative way to identify, and find the lost pieces of the story. Working with me a Professional  Certified Coach has the potential to bring and see to completion a beautiful Tapestry , and a Legacy of Love for future generations!

Is it time for you to learn how to walk through the adoption journey with confidence and wholeness?  Are you sick of bumping up against unanswerable questions?  While there is not a magic pill or secret button to this process. I have created a successful Coaching program that is proven to find the missing threads in the Tapestry of your adoption story! It is a team effort.  My commitment to you that if you are willing to do what it takes to create a Legacy of Love in your family I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you until your tapestry is complete!

For many, within the beautiful Tapestry of Adoption, there has been a forgotten or lost thread.  A disconnect, a strong awareness that something has been missing. That missing thread can cause holes, unraveling, and often times confusion within the heart and mind of those touched by Adoption.  We believe that lost or forgotten thread  is the "Adoptees Voice", The Adoptees Voice is one of beauty and mystery.  Have you been listening? 

Ignite Your Sense of Purpose!
