adoption story

Our son is our greatest treasure

A few months ago, Ryan & Michelle celebrated their first family day with their son Shepherd. As they reflect on their son being home for just over a year now, they shared, “We are so in love with our boy and are so grateful for everything that AWAA did to help us bring him home. He is the greatest treasure; it has been a privilege and joy to welcome Shep into our family”.

We love celebrating special milestones with families and invite you to share yours as well! Email our team at to share updates, photos, milestones, or anniversaries that you’re celebrating in your family’s adoption journey.
