Our Story... Why adoption is SO important to us


Many of you are aware of our family history and obstacles that we have worked through together. Kris and I have been through a lot in the six and a half years that we have been together. We met during our first year of college, decided to take a few years off, and Kris moved from his home state to live closer to me.... We had a great first few years and then were met with the greatest challenge of our lives, losing a child. 

Just over four years ago, Kris and I lost our baby girl Samantha to still birth. There were several complications and after a few months in the hospital, multiple surgeries, and countless health problems, I was forced to undergo a total hysterectomy. At the age of 21 we faced the prospect of not being able to ever have a family on our own.  

Together, we have worked to overcome numerous obstacles, have worked hard to finish school, and begin a military career for Kris. We have just moved completely across the country for his last three years in the Navy and are then planning to move home (SC). 

Four long years have passed and there is still a missing link in our family. At this point in our lives, we hope to have a family, the family we started building four years ago. As we start the process toward adoption, we invite you to join us on the path to making our family whole again!
