Wild and Wonderful

drew garfield Gaithersburg, Maryland

The slogan of Wild and Wonderful that can be found on West Virginia license plates, since this May, has become and apt description of life in the Garfield home.

On May 15 Paxton Miles Garfield was born and our lives have been truly wild and wonderful as he became our third son born in the last two years!

This past December our oldest son's birth mom emailed us and attached to the email was a sonogram. She was pregant and she wanted to see if we would adopt the child. We immediately knew we had seen our third child when we saw that sonogram.

We know many of you have given to help us adopt our first two sons and we are so incredibly grateful for your expression of love and generosity toward us. Thank you for helping to give us the most wonderful gifts we could ever receive, our three sons.

Grateful,

Drew+Melanie+Maddox+Langston+Paxton
