We were both born and raised in the same town just south of the bustling city of Atlanta. Jeff and I met fifteen years ago when he came into the local grocery store where I worked. After many trips
to the store, he finally got up the courage to ask me on a date.
After three years of dating, we were married on October 9, 2005 in
an intimate ceremony with our families on a cruise ship in Tampa. One of the greatest moments in my life was the day that I became a step-mom to Brianna, Jeff’s daughter from his previous marriage.
We were married for 9 years before Brayden was born. Shortly after we were married I had to have a hysterectomy. Knowing that we always had talked about and dreamed of
having children, we began to discuss adoption. We decided that we wanted to wait a while, get settled into married life, into our careers, and establish ourselves so we could give our all. Therefore, we were married eight years before we began the adoption process, and Brayden was born about a year later.
He was born in August 2014, and we have been amazed at thevamount joy he has brought to not only us, but our entire family. It
is because of the amount of love we have realized that we have to give, that we are hoping to adopt again.
