You've heard the phrase "it takes a village to raise a child".  Our "village", both near and far, are eagerly awaiting the addition of our little one and are ready to extend love, care, and support to our future child.  Both sets of parents live very close so Trenton and James often get together with them for family dinners and barbecues.  A typical holiday will be spent making gingerbread houses and drinking hot chocolate at James' parents for Christmas Eve and then traveling to Trenton's grandparents to have a wonderful Christmas dinner with his parents and extended family on Christmas Day.


We have built a strong support system of friends, both near and far.  These connections extend all across the country but we still manage to maintain close relationships with them.  Every one in our lives are supportive of our decision to adopt and we can't wait for our child to have so many extended "aunts" and "uncles" for care and support.
