Our adoption story began when we talked seriously about our future. We knew without a doubt we wanted to be parents, Nick was the first one to bring up adoption as a way forward. He always wanted to adopt because of his deep love for God and also because he was told about adoption at an early age - one of his best friends from grade school through highschool was adopted. For me (Emily), Nick spurred my passion for adoption. When my heart was fully opened up to expanding our family in this way, we knew adoption was something we had to do as a family. Entering into this process is one of the best decisions we’ve ever made and one of the most important things we’ll choose. We believe that with 100% certainty because if God adopted us into his family, we’re called to do the same.
