Hoping to Adopt: Cahoon Family

Our story like everyone’s story is unique and has come with challenges but most of all lots of joy. The short version of our story is my husband James was married before for 8 years to an amazing woman named Paige. Paige fought cancer for 6 of those years and due to her cancer was not able to bear children. So James and Paige adopted an amazing little girl that they named Esme. When Esme was 8 months old Paige’s cancer came back and she died 3 months later. After some time had passed James felt ready to begin the next chapter of his life. That’s when he met me and we got married. Wedding268I was so blessed to not only to marry an amazing guy like James but to get to be a mom to the best little girl ever. We were all blessed in this situation. Since we have been married we have been trying to have children on our own and between the 6 medical procedures we have had and all the money we have spent we were left empty handed. We want to add to our family more then words can say. But even more so Esme asks us daily when she gets to be a big sister. We have plenty of love to give to a child and hope that day comes soon.Hoping to Adopt: Cahoon Family

    Stacey…You and James are the best parents to Esme, and a new little baby will be the luckiest baby on the planet to join your family. I can’t wait for your journey with adoption to begin. Saying my prayers for you.

    Stacey, your little family is amazing! Any new baby boy or girl would be so lucky and blessed to have you as their mom. You truly are a selfless person. Beautiful on the inside and out. With so much to offer, I hope an adoption happens soon for you, James, and cutest Esme.
    Love You!

    This story is so incredibly tender. To suffer the loss of a wife and mother, a single Dad with an infant daughter, finds love again with beautiful Stacey, then they find they are also unable to conceive. Stacey is an amazing woman, so overjoyed to have found James and precious Esme! Because of the journey this family has experienced they take nothing for granted. James and Stacey know they have been blessed to form this new, tiny family. To see them together is pure joy! So excited for this next step in their lives.
