Forever Family

On March 4, 2016 Dropping Anchors Mama, Jay, adopted her youngest son Elijah. We have been over the moon excited for them and their family. This excitement has started to reach many, many other people. Elijah’s adoption announcement was shared by organizations such as Together We Rise and Love What Matters, among hundreds of other followers.

We are proud to announce that ABC News has decided to run a story about sweet Elijah and his new family. You can read it HERE.



He has four amazing brothers, and the most wonderful big sister who couldn’t wait for him to join their family.


Along with his mom, dad, and siblings, Elijah will also get to grow up with his biological brothers as they all celebrated the same adoption date. The two families live in close proximity to each other and know the importance of maintaining biological connections. This will allow them to always remain part of each others lives.


Please join all the Dropping Anchors Mamas in congratulating the Houston and Washington families!
