*Note from Jenae: Several weeks ago, I asked if anyone was interested in writing a guest post on adoption on my Facebook page. The response was overwhelming. People e-mailed me to share their stories and others e-mailed to tell me about friends who they thought should share. Instead of one post, I decided to start a series. A new post in the “Open Arms” series will be featured every Tuesday for the next several weeks. Last week’s post was on International Adoption. I hope you enjoy reading these encouraging, life-changing stories!
My name is Stephanie and I live in a suburb outside of Sacramento, CA with Jerry, my amazing husband of 15 years, and our 5 beautiful children. Our road to a family has not been smooth but filled with curves and bumps. That road led us to build our family through both having a biological child and through adoption.
