As a child, did you ever dream that you would one day adopt?
Adoption was always something I felt called to and loved hearing about growing up. Over the course of my life, through people I knew, stories and personal experience, I learned that family is the most important thing we have in life and it is comprised of more than our DNA. Some of the best people in my life have been added through fate and I find adoption to be the same for one of our most powerful relationships between a child and parent.
Why did you choose adoption?
My husband Markus and I spent the first weeks of dating talking all about our lives, our dreams for the future and what we wanted our families to look like. I was so excited when adoption was something he was also called for. We originally talked about it a lot as something we would do to add to our family, but the more we talked about it the more we knew it was truly the way our family was meant to grow. Markus and I are so different from each other which is what makes our relationship thrive. We knew a baby that was just as unique as we are would be the perfect addition to our family.
