Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

Adoption month contest winners!

I apologize again for not posting for so long. I know there are a couple of your blog readers who are anxious to know who won the contests. I promise the other posts I had planned for last week will happen. But for now, here are the contest winners:
For the photo session with Kim Nevels Photography offered by my awesome friend Kim to anyone touched by adoption in the Phoenix AZ area, the winners are:
Megan & Shane of The Arizonia Experiment!!! Megan & Shane are the proud parents of 3 children through the miracle of adoption. Their first miracle is their son, then their oldest daughter joined them, and just this past week, on Thanksgiving Day, how perfect is that, their youngest, newest, miracle, their second daughter joined their family. And get this, their son, and their newest addition, have the same amazing angel birthmother. No doubt they will be using their winning photo session to capture moments as a new family of 5! Congratulations Megan & Shane!!
And now, the not 1, but 2 photo sessions from Jessalyn at Memories Remixed, for anyone touched by adoption in the Utah area, the winners are:
Angie & Clayton of The Blessings of Adoption!! Angie & Clayton are blessed by adoption two times over. Their first blessing is the cutest little man ever! Seriously, if you have seen pictures of him, you know what I mean. His smile is awesome. And his new little brother, who is only a few weeks younger then my Emily, rivals his brother in cuteness. Congratulations Angie & Clayton!!
And now, for the winner of not only the 2nd of Jessa's photo sessions, but also the winner of the blog redesign for a hoping to adopt couple offered by the ever so generous Crystal from Envision Image Design:
Ron & Jessica of Two Lions & an Archer!! Ron & Jessica were blessed with their first little cutie through the miracle of adoption in 2008. Now they are looking to add a new little cutie to their family. Their journey, along with the journies of all my winners, is amazing. If you have a moment, check out their blogs and read them. :) Congratulations Ron & Jessica!!
Now, if you are wondering how Ron & Jessica were able to win both contests, or why I didn't post their finalists stories for you to vote on, well, Ron & Jessica were 1 of 2 entries in both contests. The other entry in the blog redesign contest withdrew after winning on another blog. Nevertheless, although I don't know much about Ron & Jessica, after reading their journey, I think you will agree, they are very deserving of both wins. Congrats you guys! And congrats to all the winners!!!
