We are so thrilled to announce the first placement of 2018 through A Child’s Hope! Ethan and Ellen welcome Octavian Levi on adoption placement day! They are so excited as he is their first child and the first grandchild in the extended family.
We were touched by one of sentiments shared by this couple during their adoption journey:
You do not need to be a perfect person or come from a perfect situation, and neither does your child. Life is hard and we’re all imperfect. Therefore, we need to take care of each other in this life and sometimes that takes a village. We’re in this together.
As all adoption journeys are different, you might be surprised that Ethan and Ellen haven’t struggled with infertility. Rather, Ellen has a neuromuscular condition that is genetic. Although it is well treated and her life is expected to be long and healthy, some people can be more strongly affected by it. She has decided she would prefer not to pass it on to a child. Ethan and Ellen signed with A Child’s Hope in the summer of 2017.
A Child’s Hope has been helping families with adoption placement in NC since 2000, and we will be there to support you through every step. The first step for any hopeful parent or an expectant mother considering adoption is to contact A Child’s Hope.
