Luckiest People in the World
After years of struggling with infertility my husband and I were ready to consider adoption.
I decided to talk with a friend who I knew had adopted a beautiful baby girl and asked her about adoption. This friend told me her adoption experience and said that my husband and I should talk to Geri. Little did we know that Geri was going to forever change our lives. When we met Geri we could tell that she genuinely cares for the birth moms and the adoptive families. One of the reasons that we were drawn to Geri is the counseling and mentoring that is offered to birth moms. Geri is understanding and caring; she can relate to birth moms and adoptive families and is an advocate for both.
We were so excited to get things moving, and we worked hard to get everything done quickly so our book could be shown. We turned our book in and the very next day we received a call from Geri asking if she could show our book to a birth mom that is incarcerated. We said yes and met the birth mom a few weeks later. She is a sweet girl who made some bad choices and mistakes; and who is selfless and chose adoption wanting a better life for her baby. Two months later our son Darius was born. It was love at first sight. He is everything that we could ask for and more. He is such a happy baby and everyone that meets him is drawn to his personality and smile. We feel like we are the luckiest people in the world to have been chosen to be his parents.
A year after Darius was born we got a text from Geri asking how old Darius is and if we are ready for number two. We had just started to talk about when we would want to adopt again but had not decided; but of course we had to hear what Geri had in the works. Needless to say, we were once again quickly working through the process so our book could be shown. This time the birth mom is a young girl who has dreams of graduating high school and going to college. We said yes and met her a few weeks later. She is a sweet girl who wants her baby to be loved and have endless opportunities. 3 weeks later our beautiful daughter Kennedy was born. She is only one month old as we are writing this but we can already tell that she is our ray of sunshine.
We are so blessed to have two beautiful children; through the gift of adoption we have been given the honor of being parents.
