The minute Chris and I were married, we knew we wanted to start a family of our own. I have two biological sons that instantly fell in love with Chris and vice versa. Seeing how much love was shared between Chris and the boys, we immediately started trying to have a child of our own. Since 2005 we began pursuing the idea of starting a family. After a couple of years trying to get pregnant without success, we sought medical assistance. The doctors told us that it was unlikely we would ever conceive. The news was heartbreaking. All of the plans we had made were built around us having children and expanding our family. As we dealt with the emotions surrounding the news, we prayed for guidance. We both started to get these feelings that the Lord was preparing our hearts to adopt a child. We talked to Noah and Jacob, and they were on board immediately. No matter biological or adopted we are all God's children. We will love no different. Love covers everything. We, along with our children, will see the child God has placed in mind for us as the most amazing, precious blessing ever received.
We met through mutual friends. We spoke on the phone first before Chris visited me. On that visit, we knew there was something there. We talked for hours and we knew right away we would spend the rest of our lives together. We did so many fun and exciting things while we were dating! We went to lots of baseball games, went to the movies, ate at tons of restaurants, and took a few out of town getaways. The courtship was amazing because it gave us time to solidify our bond and experience life together as a couple. We knew it was meant to be and nine months after our first date, we were married. We had a small, beautiful ceremony with all or family and closest friends supporting us. Besides being deeply in love with other, we are also best friends!
