"They had a deep seated desire to help a child."
The Weaver Family
Parents: Bradley and Tammy
Adopted Child: Katie
Bradley and Tammy Weaver became foster parents after being inspired by some fellow members of First Christian Church in Cape Coral who became foster and adoptive parents. They had a deep seated desire to help a child and sought their foster license.
When they received 10-month-old Katie in 2003, she instantly became a part of the family. Their older daughter, Miranda, loved having a younger sister and later that year, the Weavers decided they wanted to adopt Katie.
The process was long and arduous, but the Weavers found support and strength in the families of their church congregation who were able to mentor and guide them. Three years later, Katie was theirs.
Today, Katie is a typical 7-year-old first-grader who enjoys gymnastics, attends church with her parents, and participates in youth group and Bible camp.
