We have always wanted to have a family and talked about it greatly while dating and the early years of our marriage. Adoption came up several times as we talked about what our future family would look like. After being unable to conceive naturally, we decided to explore other options. Adoption is very familiar with Josh's side of the family as he has several cousins who were adopted. After hearing their stories and learning more about adoption, it felt like a natural fit for us and the next steps in growing our family!
