Our dreams came true after a long wait and many profiling opportunities. Feeling discouraged and frustrated with the wait I called Michele Fried to discuss our profile. We had already changed it two or three times, created a DVD, and an online profile. During our conversation Michele told me they were working on an adoption plan for a baby boy born the day before. I thought about him all day wondering if he could be our baby. When the phone rang late than afternoon I held my breath. It was Sue Kolock calling to share the news that we had a son! Less than 24 hours later we sat in the STAR nursery as Owen was placed in our arms. It was so hard to believe he was actually ours.

Owen continues to bring us so much joy everyday. We will always be grateful to his birth family for making an adoption plan and to Adoption STAR for bringing us together.
