On lesbian news of the world, Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger announced on Sunday via instagram that they adopted a baby girl, named Sloane:
Dear Birth Mom,
We promise Sloane will be loved every single day by us, our friends and our family. We promise to give her the tools to live a happy, successful life of inclusivity and support. We promise to share her adoption story with her from the very beginning and celebrate every milestone! We promise to encourage her to follow her dreams no matter how big or small. We promise to be open minded and respect your wishes to have future communication and that she will always know how much you love her!
To My Wife,
My heart is exploding with Joy. We did it, baby! All of the ups and downs, tears, stress and anxiety was worth it to have this beautiful blessing in our arms. We are building what we’ve always dreamt of. You both are my everything and I promise to always do right by the both of you. I love you so much.
Thank you to our wonderful family, friends, agency, teammates and coaches who have supported us fully through this process and now we are SO PROUD to share her with the world!
To all my adoptive families out there. Wow, we see you. Whew, this has been a very stressful process. I’m hopeful to tell our story one day but for now... we can breathe again.
