Thank you so much for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We always considered adopting as a way to grow our family and, after a few years of trying to start a family, we found God was telling us adoption should come first! We have been blessed to adopt our daughter Lucy and love to help her discover new things and learn. We are thrilled to add to our family once more through the joy of adoption!
