Sam was born in South Carolina. Julie was the first person to hold him and was right there to coach his birth mom during labor. It was a beautiful experience that she will never forget! Sam is now in 3rd grade and is so proud of himself and his reading abilities. He’s smart, funny, inquisitive and just a great guy. He loves cartoons and cars and swimming. His favorite food is hot dogs. He even dressed up as a hot dog last Halloween! We have an open adoption with Sam’s birth family.
Savannah is another South Carolina baby. We found out that she was being born and went to the hospital immediately! Her birth mom chose a closed adoption at first but we have since formed a really great relationship with Savannah’s birth family. Savannah is very artistic and loves drawing and painting. She will be entering first grade this fall and is doing very well! She loves horses and wants to take horseback riding lessons. She also loves cats and stuffed animals.
Isaac came home to us at the age of 6 months. He was born here in the USA but his birth parents are both from China. He has a few delays but is catching up. His favorite things include iPhones, remote controls and chasing cats around the house. We have an open adoption with his birth family as well.
Our home is a large log cabin located on about 42 acres of land in Southern Indiana. We are about 10 minutes from town so it’s the best of both worlds. We have 5 bedrooms and a movie theater as well as a swimming pool out back. We love seeing the deer and wild turkeys roam our fields. It’s peaceful and yet we
are not far from parks and schools.
