Why We Want To Adopt:
Adding “J” to our family through adoption has been such a HUGE blessing. We’re looking to adopt again because:
- We would love to have another child – we have lots of love to give.
- We want our children to have someone to share life with – a playmate, a confidant, a friend and a partner in crime.
- We love experiencing life together as a family. We love to laugh, play, go on trips and simply hang out.
- We will provide our children with an abundance of opportunities.
- For these and a bazillion other reasons…we hope we have the chance to talk with you.
