Why Adoption?

Since before we got married, we knew that we would grow our family through love and adoption is one of the ways we wanted to do that. We have were diagnosed with secondary infertility. After the emotional and physical pain of fertility treatments and Christy's surgeries (including a full hysterectomy), we decided that adoption is where our hearts and God are leading us. Our son couldn't be more excited to become a big brother! We are so thankful for the option of adoption. We are stronger as a family and stronger in our faith from our trails. We are excited for this next chapter to raise our children to have fun, enjoy life and love others. So many things have happened along this journey that continue to display God’s plan unfolding. We know that part of God's plan is having an open adoption that develop a relationships that is pleasing to the birth parents, us, and your child. We want your child to know their birth parents and the love that you have for them.

We especially love using the neighborhood pool and playground in the summer and taking walks to the track year round. We fell in love with our neighborhood in hopes of expanding our family here. We have found a church home that is Bible-Centered and welcoming. Its helped us bring God to the center of our marriage and our lives. Our church family has provided resources that have taught us about adoption, how to love on birth parent(s), and developing healthy open adoptions. Both of us come from very large, close-knit families. Christy's family lives within minutes of us and we typically spend Sunday afternoons together eating and watching the cousins play together.
