In fatherhood, I have found my vocation in life. While I enjoy my professional work, tracking market developments in international energy markets, my passion is caring for my family. It brings me great satisfaction to see my children learn by answering their questions, reading to them, and taking them on outings to museums, cultural attractions, etc. I am most blessed to share my life with my wife Tracey, who is wonderful mother and helps me to be a better person. I am blessed to be the third of four children in my family and relish sharing time with my siblings and my 12 nieces and nephews as well as my parents. Married for 56+ years, they have always demonstrated the power of unconditional love and instilled in me a love of God and family, which I now try to emulate to the best of my ability.

I am community development banker by profession but a mother and wife by vocation. A native of St. Louis, I have spent most of my life here, except for brief stints out of town for jobs right after college. I love the quality and convenience of life here and am fortunate to have found not only rewarding employment here but my husband of 10+ years John as well! We love working side by side raising our young family, William, age 4, and Therese, age 2.5. Being a busy young mother, I appreciate the love and support of my parents, who live locally and are very engaged and loving grandparents. I also have a terrific close network of fellow working moms that provide all manner of practical support and advice.

Dear Birthmother

Your consideration of adoption demonstrates your selfless love for your child! We are honored to be considered as adoptive parents for your child and, if selected for this role, pledge our unconditional love and the entirety of our emotional, spiritual, and financial resources to raising him or her to achieve his or her fullest God-given potential. Our home is a loving and stable environment that offers the benefit of your child growing up with siblings as well as sizable extended family locally in St. Louis as well as throughout the Midwest and in Hawaii.

Reason to Adopt

We always desired to have a family but encountered fertility challenges that limited our ability to do so naturally. Through adoption we have received a son and daughter and love our vocation as parents! We have been blessed abundantly with the means to offer a stable and loving home to an additional child and feel that is what God is calling us to do.
