When we found CAC during our adoption journey, they were such a blessing to us. God placed our adoption consultant, Tracie Loux, in our lives at the absolute perfect time. We came to CAC, already having 3 biological children, very unsure about which route of adoption to take. When we decided to pursue a special needs adoption we really didn’t know how to get started but the Lord really guided us the entire way. At the beginning of our adoption journey we only considered adopting a healthy newborn or toddler. We just never considered adopting a child with special needs because it was something we were not very familiar with. So really, it was fear of the unknown. But the Lord continued to work in our hearts to consider adopting a child with special needs, specifically, a child born with Down syndrome. After working with our consultant to get us started on our homestudy and profile book, we were quickly matched with our sweet son Carter. Our hearts have grown by miles and miles and we are so in love with our son! God led us straight into the arms of CAC and put us on the path straight to Carter. Since the adoption of Carter, we have continued growing our family through adoption. Over the last few years we have adopted 2 more children with special needs through International Adoption. In 2015 we brought our son Eli home from China, and in 2017 we traveled to China once again to bring our daughter Hannah home. Adoption has been such a huge part of our lives and has blessed our family in ways we never knew possible. It is truly my passion to walk alongside couples and be a small part in growing families through adoption.
