What Led Me To Adoption
I have always wanted to have children. Early on, I was drawn toward adoption and the idea of opening my home to a child. I have a number of family members and friends who have adopted children, and it has been a wonderful experience for them. For the last twelve years, I have joyfully helped to raise my friend’s son. We lived in the same house for five years and now live in adjoining houses so we can continue to be a part of each other’s daily lives. Troy has a number of special needs, both physical and developmental. He just turned fifteen and is one of the big highlights of my life. He shows joy freely and demonstrates love strongly. My relationship with Troy has strengthened my desire and confidence to adopt a child.
