Most of you know us, but for those that might not know us that well, we thought we would share a little.

This is us…

Mike, Steph, Cady. and Nelly

Our family first began when Mike and I got married on January 5th, 2004. We always knew adoption would play an important role in our family, we just didn’t know how important and how special it would become to our family. We waited and prayed for 9 years for Cady.

Although those years were hard, she was so worth the wait and we wouldn’t change a thing about our journey to parenthood! She was perfectly and amazingly created just for us and is an amazing and beautiful little girl. We honor and respect her birthmother for choosing life and allowing us to adopt and welcome her into our family because she is one of the BEST gifts we’ve ever been given!

Six years later, after more praying and waiting, we welcomed another new little miracle into our lives through a different type of adoption!


Antonella. We adopted our little snowflake as an embryo (shown in the picture she is holding). It has been an incredible journey and we are so excited she is finally here!
