My Story:
Dec, 2011
Hi, I'm Vicky, my husband is named Ashley (really!) and we've been married for over 10 years. I have PCOS so we struggled with infertiltiy for many years. I finaly am throwing in that towel and picking up the hope of adoption. I always said we would adopt a sibling, we just have to alter that thought to adopt the first.

We were licensed to be foster parents with the state of Missouri on 8/1/11. Our first foster placement was a 16-19 month old boy from 8/23/11 to 12/12/11.

On 12/23/11 I was able to witness the birth of my son. Anthony was born at 6:47pm only 2 days early, and was 5 lbs 8 oz, 19 inch long. We brought him home directly from the hospital on Christmas Day.
