Adoption is near and dear to our hearts because 3 of our children have joined our family via adoption. We adopted our son Deacon in 2005, our daughter came home from Haiti in 2009, and our son finally came home from Haiti in 2010. I love to encourage others as they journey towards their kids and especially after they are home and in the real world.
