I am grateful for Esther, who listened when God placed us on her heart and has not only facilitated the legalities of Eleanor's adoption, but has shared in our joy. I am grateful for each and every day that passed and how our story has unfolded. I am grateful for my daughter. I am grateful for the man that I share my life with. I am grateful for this house that we call home. I am grateful for Drew's career, the professional opportunities it provides and for a company that prioritizes family & faith. I am grateful for family & friends that have journeyed with us, cried with us, and laughed with us. To God be the glory!
