August Adoptive Family :: The Canny Family

We are the Canny Family. Mom (Holly), Dad (Michael), and twin 5 year-old girls (Chloe and Niamh). Our dossier has been in South Korea for 9 weeks now and we expect to be matched within the next couple of days to weeks. Currently the time frame is as little as three weeks to be matched!!

Michael and I met in 2006 in Boston, where we were both only visiting friends and family. I am from Louisiana and he is from Ireland. I went to visit Michael in Ireland in 2006 and stayed for 4 years. We got married and moved back to the states to start our family. We have always talked about adoption and knew that it was something we would one day love to do. Soon after we were married, I began to have numerous miscarriages before learning I have a chromosome disorder that made it hard to carry healthy children. After many years of failed fertility treatments, we had our beautiful twin girls. When the girls were 3 we knew we wanted to expand our family through adoption. We prayed about it constantly. During that time, I was introduced to a Korean family that really got me into Korean culture, food, and TV shows.  We were even planning a family vacation to South Korea as we love to take trips as a family. When planning our trip, I started to read about the Korean adoption program. We immediately knew this is what we were meant to do and started the process in December 2017. We are over the moon with excitement about welcoming a new child into our family and incorporating the Korean culture into our home. Children from Korea are typically 18-14 months old when they come home and we are hopeful that we will take custody in the early part of 2019.

Thank you so much for loving and supporting our family throughout this month. We cannot wait to lock arms with each of you!

Love,

The Canny Family
