Joining Two Families Through Adoption
When Heather Mitchell, a 25-year-old single mother of two, realized she was pregnant, she knew she couldn't parent another child on her own. She searched online for couples who wanted to adopt, and found Jessica and JJ. She knew right away that they should be her baby's parents, and open adoption would let her say in touch with her son.
High school sweethearts, Jessica and JJ, married for eight years, were thrilled. They knew early on that they would not be bale to have biological children, and had been working with LSS Adoption Services for six years before Jackson came into their lives. Amazingly, Jackson is the 13th child in JJ's extended family to be adopted through LSS!
Now, Jessica, JJ, Heather and their extended families form a circle of love around Jackson. It's an example of open adoption at its finest.
