“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

The Gerry's Adoption Story

We asked our recent adoptive couples if they would share a bit about their adoption stories.  Juliet and Aaron quickly responded.  Enjoy their story and getting to know them and then send us your story.  Whether it was recent or a while ago, we would love to hear it!

Hi!! This sounds like fun! Our story began last August, when our birth mom rode a Greyhound bus from Southern California to Tacoma Washington. She was homeless and pregnant and needed a place to stay. She had contacted me because we adopted our son from her three years earlier, asking if we wanted to adopt this baby as well. Of course we did!! We took her into our home for five LONG months. So, time went on and it was fun going to the ultrasound appt and finding out it was a GIRL!! and going to the OB appt's with her. So, finally she got induced and on January 4th of this year our baby girl was born!!! She is perfect and beautiful!! We love her so much!! Birth mom was awesome during labor, a pro really, just pushed her out like nothing. She recovered in a week or so and was excited to go back to California. She flew on an airplane going back. We have an open adoption so we will be seeing her this November. In the mean time, we have finalized the adoption in June and will be getting her sealed to our family in September. We are all excited to have this baby girl in our family. We have our boy and our girl now. We are grateful to our birth mom for giving us the gift of children. Let me know if you want to know more.
