Today’s Adoption Good News comes from the Shelly, a foster mom and adoptive mom.
Like so many others, my husband Mike and I are infertile and found ourselves facing some tough choices on how to build our family. In early 2008, we were inspired to become foster parents. At first, we thought we would just try to help as many kids as we could while we saved up some money to privately adopt. God had other plans for us and our amazing, and VERY emotional journey through foster care led us to the two oldest of our three precious sons. Four year old Ian and one and a half year old Mason came to us as newborns and changed our lives forever! We have also been incredibly blessed to have met a beautiful birth mother who placed her baby boy with us last year. Little Logan has completed our family and brought us so much joy!
Our three boys are the light and joy of our lives. I have never loved anything more than being their mother and I couldn’t be any more their mother had I given birth to them myself. They are mine and I cherish every minute we have together. I am so grateful that we have them and that they have each other. Our boys love each other so much and it warms my heart every day that we helped them to find their brothers. I can’t imagine my life without these three beautiful, unique and miraculous boys and I am SO grateful God led us to adoption!!!
