Thinking Back:

“Justin and I are so blessed, first to have been asked to be Jayne’s parents and next to have found Adoption Choice. When we met with Jennifer, we had about 3-4 months before Jayne’s due date and the goal was to bring her home from the hospital.  Which meant, we had about 3 months to get all the paperwork, meetings and trainings completed, not to mention we lived in River Falls, WI, so far from the expectant mother and Adoption Choice.  It was a fast, overwhelming, and scary process, but Jennifer guided us through everything and made sure we were as ready as we could be. Our adoption went so smoothly from the beginning all the way through to the finalization.  Jayne is the most amazing little girl and we have the best story to tell her of how are family came to be.”
