Hello, we are Bill and Shel!
Before you get to know us, Bill and I want to say we appreciate you! You are considering what the best option is for the child you are about to bring into the world we hope that whatever decision you choose lays easy on your heart. The family you choose will forever be blessed by placing your child in their care.
The choice to adopt for Bill and I was lengthy and after quite a few soul-searching conversations we knew that there was a child out there that we could love unconditionally, and we wanted to lavish that on a little nugget. While our process to get here may not have been typical, adoption is not new to us. We have family and close friends that grew their family through adoption.
As a couple we knew that we wanted to have children after we were married in 2011. After facing miscarriages, we took some time for ourselves to cope with our losses. Deciding to adopt took us nearly two years. We are excited to become parents as we already have a home filled with love so having a child(ren) to shower that love on is so worth the wait. Long sleepless nights, dirty diapers, first smiles, first steps, first words, we can’t wait
Having people in our lives now who have adopted and have young children, talking to them about their experience and seeing how wonderful adoption can be has given us the strength and hope that one day soon we will be as lucky and blessed as they are and have been.
