FC: Ray and Beth
1: Hi! Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We hope that by looking at our photos and reading about our lives, you will find comfort in knowing how much we value family.
2: Ray and I have been married for 10 years. We both knew we wanted to start a family right away, but didn’t realize how hard our journey would be. After several years of surgeries and failed attempts at fertility, we were told it would be impossible to have children. That didn’t stop our overwhelming desire to have a family. In August of 2003, we decided to explore adoption. On August 7th, our son, Michael, was born. We knew it was meant to be. He is such an inspiration to us all and is the heart and soul of our family. We went on to try fertility again, and had our two other amazing boys, Owen and Jake. The desire to complete our family is still strong. Knowing first hand how rewarding the adoption experience can be,we feel in our hearts that this is the right choice for us. | Our Story
3: My favorite thing to do is to simply spend time with my family. After having my 3rd son, I was fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home mom! I love to watch my kids' faces light up as they experience things for the first time. I enjoy taking day trips to places such as a park, museum, and our local dairy farm to feed the animals. I also like to go for walks and explore the outdoors. my favorite place to visit is the beach. I also enjoy the occasional "mom's night out" to laugh and get together with friends. My favorite food is chocolate. I can't ever seem to get enough of it! | Beth is a very compassionate woman. Immediately after our first date, i knew i wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. Her continued love and support makes me want to be the best father and husband I could be. Beth has the patience and understanding that only the best of mothers could have. Her unconditional love and devotion has made our family what it is today. i could not imagine a better wife or mother and am fortunate to have her in my life. | Ray talks about beth | What Beth Likes
