When my dad was in law school, my mom read an article in a magazine about a family that had adopted a child from
Dad and Kelsey in
My younger sister Kelsey was adopted from
My brother Sam came to our home through foster care when he was 4 months old. When he was just over a year old, he became available for adoption. At that time, the State of
Kylie also came to our home through WACAP. This time, the agency president was traveling from
Derik and I have also adopted two children of our own. Nathan (3 1/2), and Eli (6 months). We were placed with Nathan when he was 1 week old, and Eli at 3 days old. Both of their adoptions are open, and we share a wonderful relationship with their birthmothers and extended birthfamilies. Our testimony of adoption is strengthened everyday as we have the opportunity to love and kiss on these sweet little boys. We would not be parents without these amazing women. I treasure every minute I get to spend home with them each day. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
