    We have a desire to adopt and share our loving and nurturing home with a child. We have experienced the grief of carrying a child through pregnancy and birth, only to have her given to God 44 minutes after she was born due to a chromosomal disorder. This experience has reinforced our desire to be parents and we know we will provide a loving and caring home to our future child. 

    Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. Our families are looking forward to growing our family through adoption and sharing their love and WE are so excited to share our home, family traditions and love with our child. We are excited to meet you and start the journey towards adoption together.
