Finley’s adoption was through the same agency as Mira’s, although his birth story is quite different. Finley’s birth parents are young, amazing teenagers who chose adoption for both his future and their own. They allowed God to take what some might call a “mistake” and turn it into something beautiful. Finley’s life has brought a whole dimension to our understanding of open adoption. Finley has a whole extended birth family who support us, love us, and respect us. Because of open adoption, Finley will grow up with a solid understanding of who he is, where he came from, and just how deeply he is loved.
We found out we were chosen as Finley’s forever family and just five days later, he was home! We were able to surprise our family with a big reveal including blue balloons and lots of happy tears.
We weren’t able to show his sweet face online until finalization - so we kept a password-protected blog of his first few months a home. If you’d like to see - you can check it out here.
Finley is our rainbow baby - a beautiful blessing after a storm, a reminder of God’s faithfulness. We are overjoyed to be his family!
