Steve and Anne meet on Match.com in August 2002. Steve emailed Anne and they began to exchange emails and then phone calls in August. OnAugust 31, 2002 Steve and Anne met in person. We had a wonderful date. The night flew by. We talked about everything and really felt a connection. Steve called Anne the next day and set up a second date.It wasn't long before we knew that this was meant to be.
Anne met Katie and Nick in November. Steve started talking about getting married over Thanksgiving weekend 2002. We got engaged on Dec 21, 2002 and started planning our October wedding. We got married on October 18, 2003. We had a lovely wedding and reception here and then a wedding party in Connecticut a few weeks later for those who could not travel here for the wedding.
We started thinking about adding to our already wonderful family even before we got married. In August 2004 we had decided, for many reasons, that adoption was the best option for the both of us. Anne started talking to people who she knew had adopted. Adoptions Together, Inc. came highly recommended from several friends. Anne attended an information meeting in early fall and we both became very excited about the possibilities of adoption.
