Choose Joy

My husband, Steve, and I had prepared for two years to add a child to our family. We saved the money. We had the home inspections, which often felt like half therapy session and half police investigation. And after all of that was over, we put together our profile — a book that provided an overview of our lives today and what the life of a future child would look like in our home.

There was a page about me. It talked about my biking. My volunteerism. And my love of gardening.

There was a page about Steve: It talked about his baking. His yoga. And our shared love of a good cup of coffee.

We shared about our dog, Aiden, an energetic and extremely personable French bulldog, and about our friends, families and neighborhood.
