As you are considering what is best for your child, we are hopeful that the decision you make will bring you and your child peace. Please know that even when it seems like the door is closing, there is always a window, even only with the smallest ray of light. Let that light and warmth follow you in finding the life path for your baby and yourself.
Our decision to adopt was a natural one, since we have many family members and friends who have been touched by adoption. Recently, Troy’s childhood friend adopted a little girl Cybill, and our close friends adopted a little boy Sam, six years ago. We also have two friends who are adults now, and are adopted. Talking to our friends about their experiences brought us strength and hope that one day we will be as lucky and happy as they are.
