Linden Jacob

We were filled with joy and gratitude as we welcomed Linden Jacob into our arms and hearts on September 10, 2015.  Born on June 24 weighing 2lbs 1oz, Linden is one tough preemie. Big, strong and full of giggles, he has simply captured our hearts. We are so happy to build our family through open adoption and have been excited to learn more about Inuit culture. A special thank you to Nathalie and Erika who graciously supported us through the early days of this journey.

We are thrilled to introduce our daughter, Esmae. We are forever grateful to her birth mother for her courage and love, and for choosing us to parent this beautiful little girl. We'd like to send a huge thank you to all the nurses at the Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert for their exceptional care, love and support. And last but certainly not least, we'd like to send special thanks to Barb Keppy, Nathalie Robinson, Melinda Lombardo, Erika Moore and the rest of the AO team for your passion and compassion throughout our entire adoption journey.

Taylor James

We are so happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, Taylor James. He arrived on July 23, 2015 at 2:16p.m weighing 7lbs 1 ounce and measured 20.5”. Taylor’s birthmother and father were so generous to allow us to be a part of his arrival and allow us to hold him right away and give him his first feed.  We took him home on July 24th and have been in love ever since.

We are forever thankful to Anita & Josh for giving us the biggest gift and completing our family. Thanks as well to the amazing Adoption Options team for all of their hard work and support through this process.

Kevin and Charlene are thrilled to announce the arrival of their precious daughter, Tenley.  She was born on November 13, 2015 and weighted 7 lbs 10 oz. Her big sister, Brielle, is also very excited and proud.  Brielle was born and welcomed into our family through Adoption Options in 2009.

We’re extremely grateful to Tenley’s wonderful birthparents, Anne Marie and Bill, and very grateful to Erika and Nathalie from Adoption Options.  Our hearts are full and our family is now complete.


Parenting Achievement: UNLOCKED!!

We are so excited to share the news of our son, Jackson. Jackson came to us through adoption on April 22, 2016 and life has gotten a LOT busier since then! He is a creative, funny, and fiercely independent little 3 year old and we love him to bits. Our cat, Tedd, is still adjusting to this new addition, but he does appreciate that Jackson leaves snacks unattended.

We are so very thankful to Jackson's birth family and the team at Adoption Options for everything they did to bring Jackson into our lives. We are so very happy.

Michelle, Todd, Jackson and Tedd
