Our Adoption Story

A brief overview of our adoption journey.

I’ve chosen to share parts of our adoption story publicly for a couple of reasons. First, I don’t believe that our son’s adoption would have happened without a ton of prayer. So I want to share a little of the “happily ever after” story with everyone who has been praying for years.

Second, when you’re waiting to adopt a first or subsequent child, I know that it can be helpful to read firsthand accounts from adoptive families who have had successful adoptions. Their stories are encouraging and provide valuable insight into the adoption process. I’m paying it forward by sharing our story.

You can find all of my baby/toddler updates for all three kids as well as general family updates and other family-related posts in the family section of the blog.
