Who are We? I’m Johnnie, Adrienne’s brother and Jackie is my girlfriend. We live with our yorkie Ramone just outside of Detroit. We met while working together at an ad agency and fell in love. We’ve never met a reality TV show we didn’t at least sort of like and family means more than anything to us. We’re both hoping that someone seeing all of the love put into this search will choose us and help us grow our family tree!
We’ll also be your guides behind the scenes of “Can’t Stop Believin’.” We’ll be sharing candid and intimate moments of our family and friends on the day we shot the Justin Timberlake “Can’t Stop the Feelin’” parody.
It was so important to Jackie and me that we take advantage of the inspiration created by the Can’t Stop Believin’ video shoot to capture candid moments of our family. These are the people that will be helping to love and nurture the newest member of our clan and it was important for us to introduce the world to them in a way that really showed that even though we don’t know who this child is yet or how he or she will join our family we all definitely know that we love them.
This inspired us to turn the camera around to give everyone a look into the personalities of the people they see dancing in the video. Troy and Adrienne’s family, both blood and borrowed, are made up of an eclectic group of people that come from every walk of life but share one critical feature. A deep love for one another. That love brought all of us to tiny Williamston, Michigan in the freezing cold to be a part of something that would change all of our lives. We didn’t know if it would be a day, or a month, or a year, or ever, but I think I can speak for everyone when I say that with the amount of love we all put into it we all felt like there was no way that baby Hagon wouldn’t be coming home soon.
Today we’re sharing the first in a series of videos that highlight family and friends answering a single question. These intimate moments really show how much love we already have for the soon to be newest member of our family.
The first question is: Who do you think will be more emotional when the call comes?
Emotions are a funny thing. Some people wear them on their sleeve and others can be more stoic. Another funny thing is that a child can turn one into the other reducing someone normally reserved to tears and stunning a more extroverted person into silence. We wanted to find out who our family thought would be more emotional when the call came through and the answers definitely surprised us.
You’ll have to watch the video to see if you agree with everyone’s answers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have an opinion of your own. Who do you think will be more emotional when the call comes?
Stay tuned; we’ll have another video with another question for the family soon. If you have questions for us or that you want to see us ask the family, email us at loveforadoption@gmail and we’ll ask it at our next family gathering.
