Our son

Meet Jayce.  He is our son through adoption. 

 6lbs 6oz, 18 inches long, and absolutely perfect.

He has completely stolen our hearts.

Getting to know each other in the nursery at the hospital.

(This picture gets me every single time.)

Trey's dream of a brother coming true.

The children.

We are so in love with him.  If you need to kiss your screen we understand :)

Adoption has become huge part of my heart.  We have had the incredible experience of seeing God lead us to our son. We had the privilege to get to know our Birth Mom and Dad.  We have some of the most tender and special memories with them in the hospital and are truly amazed at their strength and sacrifice.  Jayce is very much loved by both of his families.  Adoption is many things and it encompasses every single emotion that is possible to feel...but mostly it is just so beautiful.
