Hello! So nice to meet you! Thank you for spending your time getting to know us! We hope that the stories we share about our lives will connect with you and will provide a window into our little family. We can only imagine how overwhelming and difficult this time might be for you. We greatly admire what we feel is courage and strength in your consideration of adoption. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are at in your journey.
Who Are We
We are a family of Christian faith and our relationships with God are very important to us. We are connected to church, and remain good friends with people we knew in our churches growing up. When Emily shared our adoption journey, her friends encouraged and prayed for us, and for you and your child. We felt immense peace after the prayer and we were grateful for their support.
Our journey first began online. We talked and video chatted for a few months before we finally decided to meet for our first date. We decided to meet in a little town called Frankenmuth, which is home to the world’s largest Christmas store. We spent hours walking and talking through the store, and took a walk over a covered bridge. The first date went so well that we decided to schedule our second date for the very next day! When we were married, we knew that we would grow our family through adoption. We are hopeful to join you on your journey.
Thank you for taking a peek into our lives and for considering us as your child’s adoptive parents. We pray that as your journey progresses you feel peace and hope in your decision.
