Engineer / Stay-at-Home mom




All About Joseph & Caroline

We know that right now is a big time, with big decisions for you, and we don’t take your consideration lightly. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about our family!

We are currently a family of four, and have two young children. We live in Northwest, Georgia in a quiet neighborhood.  We alternate annual passes to the aquarium and the discovery museum nearby.  Our family loves to be outside in nature, or to spend time together inside, reading, using blocks, or doing crafts. We frequent a local nature park for hiking, or just playing on the playground. 

We like to joke that we have a mini zoo. We have three dogs that were all rescues (two were dumped on the road), two kittens (found underneath a car at a few weeks old), fish, chickens, and geese!

Why Adoption?

Adopting is not something that we take lightly, and we know that your decision is not an easy one, either. 

Joseph and I currently have two biological children. Before we got married, we had talked about both of our desires to adopt, and it now feels like the right time for our family. 

We work hard to teach our children life skills, good communication, and what it means to love God and others. We talk with them about how to handle big feelings, when it comes to challenges both big and small. We teach them to be kind to others, and respect and appreciate differences in others. We love our children unconditionally, and can’t wait to love another baby just the same. We are ready to open our home and share our life with them, if we are the family of your choice.

Family & Home

We have a stable, loving home, and an awesome and supportive church family, who have become our kids’ adopted Aunties, Uncles, and Cousins. Our kids also have a great and caring biological family with Grandparents and more Aunties and Uncles! There are many people that love them a lot! They are all very excited for us to bring home another baby to join our family.

Our house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It is placed back off the road in a quiet neighborhood, and we own several acres where our kids have plenty of space to play and explore with us. We have a big front porch with a mountain view, and will eat meals there, bring some toys out, or just sit and talk. 

We love opening our home for gatherings. We frequently will have company over, and host friends. A lot of living happens in our living room!

How others describe me

All About Caroline (written by Joseph):
Caroline is the love of my life. I’m madly in love with her and cherish her. Our bond has been strengthened through the good and tough times. She has always had my back, and is a wonderful wife and mother. She works very hard as a stay at home mom, taking care of our children and the many responsibilities of life. There’s so much to explore outside and she takes advantage of that, frequenting the garden and caring for outdoor animals. She enjoys art, crafting, and reading books. Her qualities that stand out to me are her gentle heart, compassion, work ethic, drive, and good sense of humor.

All About Joseph (written by Caroline):

Joseph is hardworking, thoughtful, and goes out of his way to serve his family. He’s a very involved and loving dad, and he works hard at making our kids feel heard and loved. Joseph is a wonderful husband, and makes me feel both special and supported. He works as an engineer, so he has a problem-solving mind. Joseph also likes to work with his hands on projects, and is always up for learning a new skill when it comes to carpentry, construction work, etc. He is a big goofball, keeps us laughing, and is a hands-on partner who I can always count on.

how we met

How We Met

We met at a Bible study while in college, and got married the following year. After graduating, the two of us moved up to Georgia, where we’ve now lived for almost six years! We have been through a lot of unexpected trials in our married life (loss of a parent to cancer, an unexpected NICU stay and heart procedure for our daughter after we almost lost her, etc.) that have brought us closer to one another and closer to the Lord. We’ve learned to trust God in the hard times and to praise Him in the good times.

We are not without flaws, but we stick by each other when things are tough, and we are devoted to one another and to our children. We are the very best of friends, and absolutely love doing life together! We do frequent date nights together, usually at home, and really focus on having a happy and healthy marriage. We strive to have open communication, listen to one another, keep one another accountable, and encourage each other. We try to instill these values in our children, too, so that they will have strong relationships in their lives as well.

Advice to Future Child

Life is full of experiences and opportunities, challenges and difficulties, and we will be there to celebrate with you during the good times, and walk with you through the hard times. We promise to love you always, and to be your advocate. We can’t wait to get to meet you, to see your personality unfold, and get to know the person you are and will be!

Perspectives on Open Adoption

We are committed to working together to come up with a plan that is beneficial for both parties. We would be more than happy to share photos, send milestone updates, etc. or to limit contact, if that is what is preferred. We know that each adoption experience is unique both for the birth mother/father and the adopting family, and we are happy to discuss options with you!
