Family Adoption Story

Growing up my cousin Tami and I were best friends. We were only 6 months apart in age and spent lots of time together.

After she got married they struggled to conceive. They decided to take the adoption route. After waiting several years they were blessed with a son, Trevor 5 years ago. As he got older they requested to be put on the waiting list again.

Last week they received a phone call letting them know they would be parents again.  On Thursday they were blessed with a beautiful new son, Harper. He was born 6 weeks ago.  They are beyond the moon happy. They always wanted a sibling for Trevor and Trevor always wanted a little brother.  I love happy endings!!
