Adoption holds a special place in their hearts. Magalie was adopted from Haiti at a young age and there’s adoption in Mike’s immediate family as well. They strongly feel that although there’s loss in adoption, it also means growth, healing and hope. They have been foster parents for 3 years, and believe this experience has better prepared them for adopting a child. Mike and Magalie promise to provide a safe, happy and loving home for their child, surrounded by people who will stop at nothing to show them just how much they are loved. They’re extremely excited to grow their family through adoption.
