Meet Casey & Stephanie
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a mom. I was constantly trying to mother my little brother at 14 to a point where my mom had to tell me multiple times to let her be the mom. I even graduated high school a semester early to become a nanny for a sweet family with three kids. I ended up nannying for six years before meeting Casey and finally becoming a mom. We met in 2009 and got married in 2010. We were so excited to become parents that we got pregnant after only five months of marriage. We had our son Cru in the fall of 2011, and he has brought us so much joy!
We always knew we wanted to adopt. We even talked about it on our first date. We just thought it would be later in life and overseas. However, a scary birth, infertility, a wonderful adoption network at our church, and three miscarriages lead us to adoption.
God brought us our daughter, Jovie, through adoption in the summer of 2015, and we have a great open relationship with her sweet birth mom. We write letters to each other once or twice a week to share pictures and updates. After so much loss, Jovie brought us an overwhelming amount of joy, and Cru was so happy to finally be a brother! God really taught us that His plan is great and to fully trust in Him!
After yet another miscarriage and unanswered fertility tests, we feel God is leading us to adopt again. We really want to grow our family and our kids would LOVE another sibling in the house! We have hope in His plan and are excited to be adopting again!
