We are a fun, adventurous family with a crazy amount of love to give! We have always felt the beauty of adoption in our hearts. We believe that adoption enriches all of our lives; not only our lives and the birth family’s lives, but also the lives of those who will come into contact with our adopted child. For us, adoption means an incredible love.
Neither of us specifically recall our first encounter with adoption. We both had friends growing up who were adopted and really it just seemed like a very natural thing – perhaps that’s why our first encounter doesn’t really stand out. Stephanie has a cousin who was adopted through marriage and we just recently found out Wes’ late uncle was also adopted. We have friends who were adopted as well as friends who have adopted children both domestically and internationally.
