We are Steve and Jill, and we believe that families can be created not just by blood, but by love, affection and investment in each other’s lives. We care about you and what is important to you. We hope that learning about us will help as you decide what is best for you and your baby.
Adoption has always been part of our conversations about building a family. Our journey to parenthood has not been an easy one. We lost our first child, Melody, at birth. Our son Lincoln, was born prematurely and spent several weeks in the hospital. Though Lincoln is now a healthy little boy, another pregnancy is not the right choice for us.
We belong to a diverse church community that places high value on taking care of each other, and adoption is an important part of that. One of the things we like best about our church is that it includes all different kinds of families. It is a warm and welcoming place because of our beliefs that every life has value and that love unites us in our differences. Many of our close friends have adopted, and that is especially important to us.
We are beyond excited about adding a baby to our family through adoption! We have a lot of love to give, and we care about investing in the lives of children. We look forward to helping our son get to know a new brother or sister.
