Our adoption journey to Ashley!

Michelle and Tim Kutcher
Michelle and Tim Kutcher DeBary, Florida

Dear Family and Friends,

Many of you have already heard the exciting news that we are growing our family through adoption AGAIN! We are adopting an infant from right here in central Florida! As a family, we have been excitedly praying for our child and birth parents.

Our adoption story is one that began many decades ago, unknowingly. Michelle was diagnosed with a childhood cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma at the age of 22 months old. She was a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and received life-saving radiation and chemotherapy as a small child. Consequently the amount of radiation she received caused her infertility.

Fast forward 30 years and we began the adoption process for our first child in 2015 and were thrilled to welcome our daughter in January 2017 by adoption. She was born in Arizona and we have loved her birth family from the very beginning. We are so grateful we can talk on the phone, video chat, send pictures and letters, and stay in touch with her extended family through social media. We never would have imagined how beautiful an open adoption would be! We can’t wait to see how God grows our family again by adoption. Thank you for your continued love and support in this incredible faith journey of adoption!

Our daughter is home!

April 9, 2019

Last Thursday early morning our lives changed with one phone call! This was a crazy fast miracle that has left us in complete shock! At 4:30 a.m. I received a call from our adoption agency’s director telling me we were chosen and that baby girl was at a local hospital ready to go home! We had no idea we were even being presented due to the quickness of this “stork drop” situation. I woke Tim up and told him we were going to get a baby TODAY! It wasn’t a dream. 

We met Ashley’s beautiful and courageous birthmother and spent time with her. Such a sweet time getting to know her!  After consents were signed we walked into a private room where we met and held her for the first time! She’s a doll! We were headed home just a couple hours later! Evelyn is thrilled and we are so grateful for all the love and support! 

It is our greatest joy to share that our daughter, Ashley Nicole, is home and in our welcoming arms!
