After many years of fertility treatments, miscarriages and grief, my husband and I welcomed our son – now a teenager – to our family through the miracle of adoption.

He is energetic, joyful and strong. He definitely keeps us on our toes, and we know he was meant for our family, and we were meant for him. I am grateful beyond words to his first mother. She chose to give him life, she chose to make an adoption plan for him so he could have a life that she desired but could not provide for him.

I am grateful for the trust she had in us, and we honor her. Every time I work with a woman that is considering adoption for her baby, I think about my son’s first mother.

As the leader of the Little Angel’s team, I strive to bring humility and graciousness to our adoption services.
