Hello! We are Scott & Allison and we are so blessed to have our new baby boy, Thomas! We are soaking in every second with our angel. We chose to adopt because of fertility issues, but instead of continuing with treatment, we chose adoption. We wanted a family…it didn’t have to be a baby with our DNA! We did our research in agencies and our options. When we found Everlasting, we liked what we saw and really liked the staff. We waited about 8 months before we were matched with our birth family and at about a year with Everlasting, we were placed with our baby. Waiting is hard, I won’t lie, but it’s totally worth it in the end. Our relationship with our birth parents has been wonderful and we chose an open adoption. I would encourage adoptive families to truly consider being as open as possible because it has made it much easier on everyone in our situation. Adoption is an amazing journey, with many ups and downs. If your heart is telling you to go for it, don’t hesitate!
