" Erica, Brian and Leah are an incredible family. They are beyond loyal to those in their lives. It feels like a gift to know them. My oldest daughter and Leah are best friends, too. They've been at the same school since preschool and are nearly inseparable as third graders. I also have a 5-year old daughter and Leah is so gentle and kind to her, too! She loves her like a little sister. Leah's character is a true reflection on Erica and Brian. Leah is kind, creative, and hardworking - mirroring her parents character. Erica and Brian have been longing for a sibling for Leah and desire to love and care for another child so badly. When talking about adoption, Erica often gets emotional because she so passionately wants a child to add to her family. She is such an amazing mother, too. Despite working as a very dedicated teacher at a local high school, Erica makes it a priority to get the help Leah needs in school by taking her to tutoring and also creating mini-lessons for her to strengthen her skills. All of this and taking Leah to dance class several days a week! Erica truly longs for another little baby to join in on the afternoon, evening, and weekend fun! In addition to being friends with Erica, I also work with her at the high school. We have common students and our students are unanimous - Mrs. Sands is an amazing teacher! She is dedicated to her students and wants them to experience success. Brian is a very dedicated husband and father and works hard to provide and be emotionally present for his family. Brian recently lost his father and while going through this extreme sadness, I witnessed their family bond together closer than ever. This family is uniquely special and the tenderness, care, and generosity for others that I've personally experienced and also have witnessed is such a gift. Erica really is a great friend, colleague, and teacher. My family is blessed to know this family and I cannot speak highly enough of them and the joy, stability, and love they would extend to a child. I pray for them daily that their family would be completed with the adoption of a child. "
