Married since 1999, Kent and Connie spent years trying tohave a baby naturally, through in vitro fertilization and finally via adoption.After an agonizing ten-year wait, their dream of becoming parents finally cametrue with the birth of Emerson in August 2012.

Emerson was born in Pennsylvania to a couple that feltill-equipped to raise her themselves.

Their adoption journey was the reason many WAVE 3 viewers noticed the Taylors' extended absence from the airwaves late last summer.
