Prior to pursuing adoption we became certified as foster/adoptive parents in hopes of building our family. As part of becoming foster parents we had the opportunity to gain training specific to foster care/adoption and parenting as well as hands on experience.
Our friends tell us we have an abundance of love in our personalities and skills to share with a child. Although we were unable to find a permanent placement through the foster care system directly, we were blessed to expand our family indirectly. We love every minute of being parents and this experience affirmed to us that adoption is the right path for us!
