We adopted our second son, Elijah, in 2017. We got a phone call from the agency that our son was 2 weeks old and his birth mom was making an adoption plan, so we got on a plane and flew to Nevada to meet him! We got to meet his birth mom a couple times. Per her wishes, we send her pictures and updates through the agency.
We have learned that each adoption is unique. We are appreciative of the two wonderful adoptions we’ve been part of and hope to have another wonderful adoption story to share!
We are both the oldest child and each have one brother and one sister. Lindsay’s sister and Dan’s brother both live nearby with their families. We have two nieces and one nephew all under 3 years old. Lindsay’s brother is going to grad school in Florida, and Dan’s sister lives in Milwaukee. We are good friends with all our siblings and love spending time with them any chance we get. It is fun watching the kids play with their cousins, and it’s wonderful that they get to grow up together.
