Holding he/she for the first time
We are Shannon and Michael, and we are pleased to meet you. This is such a special and unique process; we want you to know we are walking this path with you. This world offers so many opportunities and so many ways for each of us to help each other. What you are doing is truly selfless and brave and we can't thank you enough.
We have been trying to have children for many years, and while the journey hasn't always been easy, adoption has always been in our hearts. We knew, together, that we always wanted to adopt, no matter what our other path looks like. We've always wanted to open our home and hearts to a child(ren). Your child will be in a home filled with love, trust, safety, and will always have a world filled with choices and support. They will know of their biological history, and any ancestry information we can share with them, we will gladly do so.
We have been married 10 years, but have been together 16 years! Our families are very close-- Shannon is the Godmother to her 10 month old niece. Mike is an uncle to his niece and nephew. We spend lots of time with family and go to the Adirondacks every year where we hike, see amazing waterfalls, have visited Santa's village, and grill out while having a bonfire. We love to travel and have been to many countries; we love experiencing different cultures and traditions. We are thrilled to welcome a child into our home, and show them all that we love so much about this amazing world and give them every opportunity to explore who they are and find their own path in life!
