Travis and Ashlee waited a little over four years for the opportunity to become parents. In 2019, they embraced a proactive outreach and made their family story more public, which ultimately led to their connection to their son’s birth mother. “We began to put her needs first and focus on supporting her,” Travis shared. Throughout the process, a Catholic Charities’ adoption social worker provided education and support. When their son’s birthmother went into labor, our Director of Child Welfare services accompanied them at the hospital. Our Adoption Social Worker continues to meet with Travis, Ashlee, and baby Arlo for monthly check-ups. When reflecting on their adoption journey with Catholic Charities, Ashlee shared, “Our specific experiences have taught us to look past the struggles of others and just focus on the person; to love them the way the Lord would.”
