So We Want to Adopt Again

Well, it's been a while. In fact, I haven't written since 2012 when our daughter (now 5) was born. Our first adoption was a great experience ... no, it was the experience of our life. We learned so much and are thankful every single day that our daughter's birth mom chose us as her adoptive parents.

So why do we want to adopt again? Well, to tell you the truth, it kind of happened by chance.

We had always said we would be open to adoption again if the opportunity fell in our lap. In other words, we weren't actively searching, but if someone reached out to us, we'd consider it a sign that the universe thinks we're ready for another child. 

So right around Christmas, a friend of mine texted me one line: "Would you consider adopting again?" My response was, "What's the story?"

She told me the story and it tugged at my heart strings. I reached out to Robert who said almost immediately, "let's do it." So we went for it. Unfortunately, that situation didn't work out. But through that experience, we realized that we are actually ready to expand our family. We took it as a sign from the universe.

We immediately talked with our daughter. After all, we're a family and family decisions are made together. She said, "If it's a boy, he can sleep in the room next to mine. If it's a girl, she can sleep in my room." 

So now here we are. Looking for a birth mother who is considering adoption for her child. If you'd like to learn more about our little family and talk to us about an adoption plan for your child, please email us:, text or call us at 540-621-3499. We'd love for you to consider us.
