Our Adoption Story
Both of us have dreamed of being dads, and our marriage has only strengthened that desire. We’re both from large, traditional, family-oriented homes. We’re thick as thieves with our siblings and have nothing but love and affection for our many nieces and nephews. David has two adopted sisters, one from Russia and one from Ukraine. That doesn’t come up much, though, because they’re considered full members of his family unit and are loved and included just as much as the biological siblings. Our age, employment stability, and strong support systems of friends and family make this the ideal time for us to adopt. We successfully adopted a son in 2021 and were unprepared for the depths of love and joy we would have for him. He is the cutest little guy, counting to ten and learning his ABCs. We maintain an open, ongoing relationship with his birth mom and grandma and try to arrange visits regularly. Another child coming into our home would receive ample love from many people beyond just the three of us.
