Have you heard our adoption testimony?

We met in 1999 through a mutual friend. For several years we were merely acquaintances and eventually drifted apart. In April 2006, we met again. We found ourselves talking well into the evening and discovered that we shared many values, interests and dreams for our future. After one weekend of constant conversations and laughter, Kaylum realized he had found the woman he wanted to live with forever… and it was Tara! We went on one date and we just wanted to get married and share our lives forever. No one but God could have put the two of us together. We laughed about that all the way to the altar. After almost ten years of marriage, we are still laughing. We are each other’s best friend and our love and commitment for each other only grows every day.

We married within five months of dating because we were excited to start our family, each of us celebrating that we had found someone who shared our dream of having children. However, we found ourselves unable to conceive, despite medical treatments. After much prayer, we both felt God’s love opening our hearts to the same realization. We want to raise a child together — we want to share our interests, values and lives with a child. We don’t need a child to have Kaylum’s nose or Tara’s eyes to do that. Those tiny strands of DNA are not important; our love and commitment is.
