Thinking of you

Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are that you would consider us as parents. It truly makes us speechless. The love you are giving your child right now will always influence his or her life and the person that they become. We are praying for you and ask God to bless you with family, friends, and good health. Thank you for your time in getting to know us better. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or need more information. What is important to you is important to us. We are here for you if you need someone to talk to. We treasure each day and are so blessed to be parents. Adoption has been our hearts for a long time. We realize it may be very new to you, so we want to be patient and give you time to gather information. If you are interested, we would be thrilled to walk along this journey with you. Let us know how we can be considerate of any questions or concerns that you might have. May God give you strength & peace in your decisions as He keeps you in His loving care!❤️

Who We Are

We met at a mutual friend's birthday party and hung out with friends all summer enjoying game nights, karaoke, and trips to Sonic! We both grew up in a rural area and we bonded over our faith and family being our most important priorities. We love watching and playing sports! We still tease each other about one of our first games of touch football and how we gave the game all we had! From the day we met, our journey together has been full of laughter! After thanks to God for our blessings and we place our trust in Him during the difficult times. We work very well together as a team and are quick to say I'm sorry to each other if forgiveness is needed. We love going to the coffee shop, browsing through bookstores, and even playing old school video games---like Dr. Mario. We love Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! Our time as a couple has been remarkable and our journey of parenthood is a dream come true. We adopted our son John in 2019 and he will be an amazing big brother! Our lives overflow with love and we know this love will abound even more as our family grows!

Adoption Diary

Just right

When I see all the wonderful families that are desiring to adopt a child, I realize birth parents have an overwhelming number of choices.  To be honest, there is not much we can say that hasn’t already been said.  Of course our words and photos paint a picture for you; obviously we want to show you the best and the brightest side of our parenting potential but we will also share that we do struggle.  We get frazzled and tired and disappointed.  We feel overwhelmed.  We might fall behind in laundry or need to sweep up Cheerios.  It might take half an hour to get our son wriggled into his pajamas.  We get tired too.  But we always want to put forth our best effort in parenting…I tell my son I will always take the time to read to him,  to rock him to sleep, to sing to him, to pray with him, to hug him, to tell him I love him.


I hope you find just what you are looking for in reviewing our profile.  If there is something you want to know, please reach out and ask.  We want you to have that “just right” feeling with the family you select, whether it is Phillip, John, and I or another family.  You and your baby deserve that “just right” connection.

Ready to be a big brother

Thanks for reading!  We have joyous news to share.  Our son John was born last year.  Our family grew through the miracle of adoption.  We are ready for it to grow again.  John is excited to be a big brother!  He has taught us so much about being parents—through giggles and smiles and feedings and diapers and stroller rides.  Seeing the world through the eyes of a child is like seeing it all for the first time said my husband Phillip.  We love each other even more now that we call each other “Mom” and “Dad”.  We have more dance moves and rejoice over high fives and first words.  Our dinner table looks wonderful with a high chair pulled up to it!  My side hurts from laughing so hard as I watch our son and his dad “play” basketball….Phillip on his knees and John in his walker.  We are so grateful that John’s birth family chose us to be his parents and we look forward to getting a phone call or email to let us know that our family is growing again!  Here’s a picture of John looking at the window…marveling at the raindrops coming down…looking for his friends the tweet tweet birds!  He is such a HAPPY guy and he will be even MORE happy to be a big brother!
