My wife and I have been married twelve years as of 2016. During this time, God opened two doors in which we could adopt our son and daughter. With the help of DHR and Agape of Alabama, we became a family of four. In both cases, the wait was long and trying, however we could not be any happier, content, and blessed with the outcome.
In both instances, my wife and I had to stand before a judge with a room of full of family and friends as witnesses and answer one question and take one oath. The question we had to answer was why we wanted to adopt our children. The oath we had to take was to promise to provide our children all the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual support that was within our capabilities. It was a sobering moment to agree to take that oath, but it was an oath we were willing to take.
