We grew our family through the blessing of adoption 8 years ago. Our baby girl, Lexie, is now 8 years old and in the 3rd grade. She amazes us each day with her spunk, smile, laugh as well as her stubbornness and determination. Lexie is a very smart, happy and very funny young lady.

She enjoys tennis and dancing (hip hop that is) and traveling. She thrives in school – she is in the gifted program and loves math and science. She already knows what she wants to be when she grows up – a pop star, a vet, a teacher, a model, an actress and that’s just this week! She’s a planner – at 8, she already plans to go to Emory University and on the 3-year program, not 4 years she tells us (we will remind her of that when she’s 18!).

We cherish each day that we were chosen to be her parents. Adoption is truly amazing, and we are so fortunate for the names, Mom and Dad.
