Waiting to Adopt – Ike & Pam

Ike and Pam met and actually dated in high school but then went their separate ways for college.  Years later, though, they ended up at the same college – Pam for graduate work, Ike finishing his degree – in the same apartment complex, in the same apartment building, across the hall from each other.  It was fate!

This time around the timing was right. They married and that was 14 years ago, and they’re still happy together!  Ike and Pam love spending time in the mountains and at the beaches in North Carolina.  They’re both athletic and enjoy playing and watching sports.  They love spending time with their friends and family and are proud godparents of their best friends’ daughter. Both their families live within a short drive, so holidays are eventful!  Between them, Ike and Pam have nine nieces and nephews, two of whom are adopted.

They plan to tell their child as much about his or her birth mother and her family as she is open to, and about the love it took for her to make the adoption decision.

Thanks to Ike and Pam for allowing us to tell the story!
