We have adopted 3 wonderful children and have recently found that our son's (Noah) birthmother is having twins.  The twins, a boy and a girl, are Noah's full biological siblings and are due 8/24/14.  We are doing everything possible to raise Noah with his bio-siblings and have a connection throughout his life that cannot be replaced!

We met in college 22 years ago and we have been together ever since.  After years of failed medical treatments in an attempt to become pregnant, we decided to adopt.  We adopted our daughter Jada and subsequently, our son, Noah.  When Noah was 4.5 months old, Jada's birthmother contacted us as she was pregnant and wanted to place with us.  Savannah was born 6 weeks early and addicted to prescription medications, although we loved her through that challenge.  We now have a 4 year old, a 3 year old, and a 2 year old and all three are happy, healthy, and thriving! 

Late last year, Illinois approved marriage for same-gendered couples and we were married in March on our 22nd anniversary, with a ceremony in June.  What a celebration for our family!  Little did we know, but in May we were to be contacted by Noah's birthmother.  And further to our surprise, she is having twins!

There has never been a question in our hearts as to whether this was the right step to take, first and foremost for our son.  We have always felt lucky to be able to raise Jada and Savannah as bio-siblings, but did not think that we would be presented with the opportunity for Noah as well.  Adoption is highly expensive.  We have already made changes in our own finances to help ensure that we can raise 5 beautiful children and raise funds for this adoption.  Tanya has a great job, Trina is doing contract work with the anticipation of returning to full-time work in September (after the birth).  We just need to complete the adoption process, pay the associated costs, and raise our family! 

We believe in prayer, "paying it forward", and that many people helping in smaller ways can have big results!  We hope that you believe this, too!  Thank you for sharing our story and for your help to complete our family!
