It was time for me to be brave — Keven's story of becoming a dad
I have always wanted to be a father. Even as a child I would think about what it would be like when, one day, I have a child of my own. I thought of the things I would like to pass down to them, the experiences, the memories I would like to create with them, my faith, my fanboy level love of Superman. The one thing that never crossed my mind was adoption.

"Each adoption has been an amazing journey. The biggest challenge has been knowing that not only God entrusted us to be their parents, but so did each one of their birth moms!"
Roanne | A Birth Mom from New York
I told my mom that I needed to know my child. I couldn’t wonder every time a little boy walked by me if he was my birth child. My mom told me about open adoption and I knew in my heart that was what I wanted for my child. I now know how beautiful open adoption can be.
