We had tried to conceive since we got married on August 9th 2006. We were under the care of a fertility specialist for 1 year, but we were unable to have biological children. Tom and I love children. For as long as i can remember i have wanted a family. Finally in 2009 our beautiful daughter was brought to us through adoption. It was the happiest day of our lives. We can't wait to complete our family with another amazing adoption. I truly believe that we were always meant to adopt. We got to meet Samantha's bio-parents. It was such a wonderful experience. They were so happy to know that there child would be loved and well taken care of. Everyday when i think of them i say an extra thank you. They have a special place in our hearts!
