My husband Daniel and I have 4 children, two through private adoption. We had two children by birth (Dakota & Kaytlin) whom were in their teens, when God blessed us with Donald and Isaac at the ages of 7 and 5. It didn’t take long to realize they weren’t leaving our home and we loved them dearly.
Adding them to our household wasn’t easy though. Just like many adoptive and foster children, they had experienced trauma in their past home and we as a family struggled with emotions and doubt. We loved them and continued to fight for them. Two and a half years later they became forever ours.
During this time, we discovered Grace Haven and what a blessing that was. We learned, we weren’t alone and it’s been refreshing to meet other families walking through the same trials as us who could understand our family.
My goal and desire is to support and mentor other adoptive families, especially those just getting started. I want to extend the blessing of grace and mercy God has given to me, and share it with others.
