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!

Happy BirthMother's Day!

Today is BirthMother's Day. Since beginning this adoption journey this has been a special day for me, but no more so then the last two years. I always knew how amazing BirthMom's were. To make the amazing, selfless sacrifice that they do for their little ones, is beyond describable. Just this last July I got to witness this first hand as Kristina placed Emily in my arms, and then again as she signed the papers that would forever change all of our lives. I can't even begin to thank her, and tell her how much her sacrifice on behalf of Emily means to us all. Not just Jacob, Tamara, and I. But to all who love us, and love Emily.

Know that on this day, and every day, we are thinking of you, loving you, and missing you.
Sharon, Jacob, Tamara & Emily
