Christian and I both have big families, and so our girls are spoiled by grandparents and Uncles and Aunts. TONS of cousins, and lot's of family get togethers and fun times.

Emma is our sassy red head.
Em and Ellie are our miracles through and through. Their birth Mom's are a MASSIVE part of our lives, and we are so thankful for that. Adoption is a miracle in itself. One that we are so honored to be apart of.

When Christian and I were dating, I was so scared to tell him about the fact that due to severe Endometriosis, I probably wouldn't ever be able to have children. His response floored me when I did. He didn't care. Being with me, was all that mattered. THAT is Christian in a nutshell. Selfless, caring and unconditionally loving. I couldn't ask for a better eternal companion.
We started fertility treatments shortly after we were married. Over the course of 8 years, IVF attempts, surgeries and losing 6 babies we knew the time had come to just STOP. I myself am adopted. We wanted to adopt whether we could successfully have biological children or not, so adoption was our answer, and we loved that.
Looking back, I am so thankful for our journey. It brought us closer together than I ever thought possible. Loss and trials will do that if you let them. Emma and Ellie are our miracles through and through, and neither one of us would change the outcome. We are an eternal family of 4, and pray that someday our family can grow through the miracle of adoption once more....
