our adoption choice
We have been hoping to grow our family for years, and it has consumed a large part of our minds and hearts. While we do not know exactly what our family will look like in the future, we do know who we are as a couple, and the love, stability and opportunity we have to share with a child.
We have several personal experiences with adoption, all of which have led us to feel confident and excited about our own journey. Several close friends have pursued adoption to grow their families, and they have been a wonderful support system for us. In addition, three members of our family have adopted, and the openness on both sides made adoption an easy choice for us as a couple. We are hoping for an open adoption arrangement that is comfortable and fulfilling for both us and the birth family.
We are fortunate that so many of our friends and family have children who are a big part of our lives. We are excited to grow our family through adoption, knowing that a child will be surrounded by a vibrant and caring community of people who will immediately fold him or her into our village.
