One of the great joys of parenthood is to be a witness to the life of a child. To be there for the scrapes, and the tears as well as the first steps and first loose tooth. Our next child (children?) would not only have two parents, but also three siblings, and many (many) aunts and uncles, cousins and grandparents and a church community to support, nurture and love on them. Although we have an active and busy life, we have always felt that our family is not complete.
Adoption has always been on our hearts. We looked into adoptions before we had our first child, but the time has not been right until now. While we have three biological children, adoption has always been on the table, and we are so excited to welcome a child/children into our home soon!
Our biological children are just as excited as we are, if not more! They are at great ages right now (5, 8 & 10) to be great helpers and playmates. This new child/children will have five doting fans from Day One. We love the picture of adoption, as a way to love someone that didn’t begin as a member of your family and fully receive them. It is a GIFT to be able to love another child and bring them into our home.
This is the family our newest addition will join…a loving, wild and crazy, always moving, sometimes messy group of people who really love each other. We are so excited about the possibility of adding another member to our little family!
Blessings, Andrew & Leah
