The story of Foster + Murphy

007a2369-x3We have the honor of raising up two beautiful boys who were both born to other women. “D” and “P” saw something worth in us to raise their children. We love them dearly and share an open adoption with both.

Here is the quick run down of our adoption journey (But, I would love to meet over coffee to share all the sweet details the Lord brought together)

-Meet in a country bar
-Get married 16 weeks later
-Donate eggs to a family that couldn’t have babies
-Start trying to get pregnant
-We never get pregnant
-Take a break and go to Africa for a month
-Try to adopt Kamoga
-Start an international adoption in the Czech Republic at the same time
-A year goes by
-Get a call about a 4 day old baby boy in the NICU that needs a family
-Drive to Florida that night
-Meet Foster, our son
-Finalize Fosters adoption
-1 year later (after foster was born) we start our second adoption
-3 weeks later we are MATCHED
-7 weeks later I stood in the delivery room to meet our second son, Murphy
-Finalize Murphys adoption
-Buy a house
-We dream BIG for what God has planned to grow our family next.

BUT we are sure happy to tell you the beauty that lies in adoption.
