We have adopted two children, in two entirely unique situations. Both times, we have been so grateful that the birth moms chose to carry their pregnancies to term and to opt for adoption. We have open adoptions with both and are able to interact within these 'extended' families. We have been extremely blessed to add to our family by means of adoption. We have utmost respect for the birth mothers of our children and realize that it was an incredible sacrifice for both of these women, done with incredible love!
