I'm 34 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 11 years. We are still very much in love and have three amazing children. Our family life is very happy, loud and fun. We genuinely enjoy spending time together as a family and with our extended families. I have worked for 13 years at a local doctor's office as a nurse/xray tech and love my patients. My job is flexible and gives me the opportunity to be off as needed with the kids. I love the Lord, am very active in our church and enjoy serving others in our community. We are a big, happy family with so much love to give.

I am 35 years old. I have a beautiful wife of almost 11 years and 3 wonderful kids. When I was younger most of my time was spent playing sports. Now as a father I get to coach my children in many of the same sports. My wife and I enjoy working out and trying to keep up with them. When I have time I enjoy hunting and fishing when we aren't playing sports. I have a passion and love for helping others every chance I get. My goals in life are to be a good example for our kids and to show love to as many people as I can.

Dear Birthmother

HI precious Momma, We want you to know that God loves you unconditionally and we are thankful you chose life. We are already praying for you and your cnild. We want you to know we will love your child as our own and provide the best care possible. We will encourage, support, cheer on and be there for him/her always. He or She will grow up in a large family full of love and fun times together. We will attend church and continue to pray for you as a family after placement. We will encourage him/her to dream big and then do everything in our power to help those dreams come true. Your child will never lack love or support in our family.

Reason to Adopt

We went on a mission trip as a couple in 2011 to Guatemala and our lives were changed forever. God began changing our hearts to serve Him more. We have a strong desire to be there for babies and their mommas in times of need. We had an unplanned pregancy when we were young and know first hand the struggles and what it means to have someone support you.. We want to be that support. We want to be there for the baby and the birthmom. Our desire is to love, care, and pray for them to the best of our ability. We have a great support system and many friends who foster and/or have adopted.

Adoption Plan

We want you to know that we are open to any and all adoption plans. We want to honor your preferences in all areas, pre and post placement.

Why are we wanting to adopt if we already have children?

We believe that God placed adoption on our hearts for a specific mom and child who desire a large family. In my experience, growing up with siblings offers many benefits. My husband and I are very close to our siblings and always have been. Our son has always wanted a brother and our girls are more like best friends than sisters. Our children are excited about having another sibling and pray for their new baby brother or sister often.

What will life look like with our famliy?
