My wife and I are in the process of our second adoption in two years, and we decided to share our experiences.
Let me first tell you a little about us. Mikki and I married in 2005, and after a few years of failing to get pregnant, we decided to open our hearts to adoption. We learned of Mary, our beautiful daughter, just six weeks after beginning the adoption journey, and six weeks later she was born. She is now a fiery 18 month old redhead.
In the Spring of this year, we heard about Luke, a beautiful 9 month old boy with a condition known as Prader-Willi Syndrome. Children born with this rare condition have very low muscle tone, needing oxygen and a feeding tube for the first years of life. Luke is now nearly 14 months, and we are excited to finally travel to bring him home within the next few weeks.
Our goal for this blog is to share our experience and maybe change some hearts with regard to adoption, especially adoption of children with special needs. We’re not perfect and we’re not experts, but we try to love as God calls us.
