Wes, Catherine and son John Michael adopt a daughter. Hear about their experience as they finalize the adoption on placement day.
Before they were even married, Wes and Catherine talked about wanting to be parents and that adoption was how they were meant to grow their family. Little more than a month after they got married in 2013, John Michael came into their lives thanks to a caring, wonderful birth mother.
During their journey to adopt a second child, the couple shared:
“We know we’re very lucky to have one child. We’re not greedy. But both of us grew up with siblings and we want our son to know the joy that comes with that kind of a bond. Although our hearts are full, we both have so much more love to give a second child.”
On January 15, 2017, Wes and Catherine were able to adopt a daughter to be little sister to 4-year-old John Michael. An exceptionally touching moment was when dad helped John Michael sign big-brother documents as part of the placement day festivities.
