“Adoption was a journey for us. We chose Hope Cottage because we didn’t just want a child, we wanted a place that could help us grow as a family, one that took an interest in the families they helped to create. Our son will not only have the benefit of knowing his birth family but he will benefit knowing that so many others are also invested in our lives as a family.”
