What Led Us To Adoption
Adoption has always been part of the plan. When we first started dating, it was never an “if we would adopt,” just a when. We have so much love to give, and our family is meant to grow. For us, blood doesn’t equate to family; love does. Jacob is so looking forward to being a big brother, he talks about it constantly. Both sides of the family have adoption stories, so it seems like a no brainer for us. Jo’s dad and stepmom adopted her brother as an infant, and Kim’s mom placed a little girl for adoption when her mom was 18. Angela, Kim's sister, has become an important part of the family as not just a sister but also an aunt. Getting to know Angela has been eye opening; she explained her feelings of gratefulness that their mom was able to make such a hard decision that gave her an exceptional life and opportunities.
