Our journey as the Garza family officially began on March 29, 2003! Eric and I bought a home shortly after our wedding and settled in on the northwest side of Houston. We spent the next 3 years spoiling our dog Roxie, working around the house, traveling, and having good times with our family and friends. In 2006 we embarked on the process of adding to our family and spent the year dealing with infertility issues. Very determined to add a little Garza to the family we didn't waste any time. By January 2007 we had started the adoption process with "Alternatives In Motion" and were well on our way to becoming parents. By May of 2007 we had been selected by our birth mother Patricia and were expecting a beautiful baby girl that July. Our beautiful baby girl "Jersi Leigh" was born on July 2, 2007 at 11:13 am weighing 6lbs. 12 oz. and was 18 1/2 inches long. We took Jersi home on July 4th and had an overwhelming welcoming of family and friends in the days after her arrival. It is now a little over a year later and I have realized that the time passes really fast and I want our daughter to have something to remember all of the wonderful times in her life! SO here it is The Garza Family blog!! Hope you enjoy!
