We are both from large families, who are a big part of our lives. Andrew is the 2nd oldest of 7 children with 3 amazing step siblings that we both adore, and Elizabeth is the 2nd of 9 siblings.
We love spending time with our parents and siblings and value our relationships with them. They are all excited and supportive of our pursuit of adoption. Because they mean so much to us, we wanted to take a moment and introduce them on our blog. To help, we put together a video!
We seriously love our families so much! Growing up in large families was pretty crazy, but we wouldn't trade it for the world. We are so grateful for all of their love, support, and excitement for us as we've started the process of building our family through adoption. They are definitely key parts of the "village" that will help with our family!
Our favorite things about growing up in a large family is always having a friend that has your back, as well as sharing memories and inside jokes with one another. Also, it's nice that you can always find someone to play a game with!
