Samantha and Jeremy made the decision to join the Everlasting Family in May of 2016. They were both overjoyed when in March a birth mom named Crystal was interested in getting to know them. While we always hope for the smoothest connection possible, there can often be hiccups and road bumps and this connection was no exception. With love and guidance, we all waited together alongside Samantha and Jeremy and weathered the storms that occurred. Emotions and tensions ran high from time to time, but none of that mattered when they got the call that Crystal was in labor. The fear and uncertainty seemed miles away when Samantha and Jeremy laid eyes on their son for the very first time. On July 17th, a bouncing baby boy, Nathan Edward, entered the world. Life for Samantha and Jeremy would never be the same! We admire the patience and strength that Jeremy and Samantha possessed. Nathan has completed their family and our hearts could not be fuller for them. We have the deepest respect and gratitude for birth mom Crystal for allowing us to stand by her side and connect her with Samantha and Jeremy. Happy Birthday, Nathan! You are one perfect little boy!
