In 1989 my husband and I decided to start the adoption process, after going through infertility treatments and suffering a miscarriage. We signed up with a reputable agency and ended up waiting 6 years for the child of our dreams. During these years of waiting, I lost both of my parents. I was devastated. I knew that something had to be done to prevent others from going through such heartache, while praying to have what only seemed natural....a family. I wanted to pave the path for other adoptive families.
After extensive nationwide research I found that couples did not have to wait years to adopt and within 6 months we became the proud parents of a newborn girl domestically and went on to adopt a 22 month old from Bulgaria.
The beautiful thing is that our story had a very happy ending, and we are here to see that your story will not only have a happy ending but a happy beginning.
