We always wanted more than one child, but it wasn’t in the stars to have more than one biological child. We have a wonderful son named Andrew who always wanted a sibling. We had talked about adoption here and there but never too seriously. One day I opened the phone book and Adoption STAR was staring at me in big letters. I made a call and asked questions and by the time my husband got home from work it didn’t take much convincing. We started the application process and started to take the classes. Because of my chronic illnesses, it took a little longer for approval. One day we got the call that we were approved.

We were profiled two other times before we got the call that would change our lives forever. After seven years, I remember that day like it was yesterday. Adoption has been one of the most precious things we will ever experience. If my husband ever agreed I would do it again. Our Emily made our family complete. I have my precious beautiful girl.

Adoption STAR is a wondeRful agency and they really care about all of the clients like we are family. Our daughter was put in our arms on March 23, 2003 at two days old, a moment we’ll never forget.
