I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a wife to Mark and mom to five children. My background is in physical therapy and I worked primarily with children with special needs. I have been at home with our children for the past 10 years. I love outdoors, hikes, camping, and exercising and health and fitness. I love getting to serve in children's ministry. Family is very important to us and we make it a priority that our marriage and family come first. We both have a heart for children and adults experiencing times of hardship and are compelled to use our resources to serve from a place of compassion. We have adopted previously and continue to want to serve families in this way.

I am 43 years old and married to Michele. We have 5 amazing children. I am an entrepreneur and my background is in the food/restaurant industry. We recently opened a franchise restaurant and am involved in other food consulting ventures in the community. I enjoy spending time outdoors, health/fitness and spending time with my family. Leadership and discipleship to my family is very important to me. I enjoy investing time in leadership with my kids sports and in serving through our local church. We host community groups through church in our home as a way to serve local families and connect in meaningful ways. My wife and I have hearts to serve families and children in need through adoption.

Dear Birthmother

Our hearts go out to you. While we have not met, we imagine that this is a hardship for you. Our desire, as adoptive parents, is to honor all life. We would want to honor your life, the life of a child you are bringing into the world, the life of this child's biological father, grandparents, and siblings and relatives. We have always had open communication on-going with our youngest son about his adoption and questions he has. Our commitment is to do this with kindness, gentleness, patience and a respect for all the lives that are involved. We hope that gives you an introduction to our family and a glimpse into our lives. If we could share one word about our hearts for adoption, it would just be ''grateful''. We thank you for reading about our family. We want to encourage you and pray you know that you are dearly loved by God. We are praying for you as you make this decision.

Reason to Adopt

We feel blessed as a family and believe that anything we have been given can best be used if shared with others. Jesus' heart towards us compels us to love others in the same way. We believe our family has much to share: time, resources, energy and love. Adoption has become part of our families' story. It has grown our compassion for people.
