Growing The Gray Family
Cheryl and Ian Gray began looking into adoption not knowing what their future would hold, but knowing they wanted to grow from a couple to a family. After going through their options, they resolved to adopt a child from foster care and began the adoption process. After attending match events held in the Tampa Bay area and not finding a match, they were eventually matched with Nathan. After their visits began and their family became a unit, the Gray family finalized the adoption of Nathan in April 2012. While there have been challenges to face as a family throughout their adoption journey, the Gray family look back and see it as just part of their family’s story. According to Ian Gray, “This has been a rewarding experience and we have grown as a family and have really enjoyed our experience through this journey.” We hope so, because Nathan wants to be a big brother and the family is currently starting the process again to grow their family.
