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 dating for two years we became engaged and were married 6 months later at our church. We have been married five wonderful years! We give 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. Our time as a couple has been remarkable; now we are ready for the amazing journey of parenthood. Our lives overflow with love and we know this love will abound even more as our family grows!

Adoption Diary

Workshop Surprise…a gift for baby

The basement of our home has a workshop area with a brightly-lit work table, a comfy stool, and cubbie boxes to house supplies.  It is in the back corner so we don’t get back there as often as the main part of the basement with the washer/dryer, treadmill, etc.  A few months after my father passed away, I happened to look in on the workshop table and see my doll crib from when I was a little girl.  To my surprise, there was a bottle of glue and screwdriver.  Apparently, before he passed away my father had been trying to refurbish and restore my childhood doll crib so that my future children would be able to enjoy it during their play time.  As you can imagine, this flooded me with emotion.  Part of the toy crib that had broken off was in the perfect shape of a cross.  My stepfather is currently in the process of preparing this piece of wood so that we can hang the cross in our child’s bedroom.  What a treasured gift from two of their grandfathers that we will tell our child about!

Highlights Magazine by Kara

When I was young, one thing I looked forward to was receiving my Highlights magazine in the mail each month.  Highlights is a classic youth magazine with stories, artwork, and games inside—tailored towards children ages 6-12.  Looking back, I realize that the magazine most likely helped develop my reading skills and enhance my creativity as a youngster.  My favorite section was the Hidden Pictures and my mom and I would always try to find the hidden objects in one of the illustrations. What does this have to do with adopting?

My mom is eagerly anticipating her first grandchild!  She remembers my excitement at receiving Highlights magazine each month, so she has already began a subscription for our child.  Hello by Highlights is a magazine for babies and toddlers ages birth to 2 years.  Every month we receive an issue in the mail addressed to our Baby and we have started a collection by placing them all in a drawer in the nursery.  They are brightly colored with durable pages ideal for little ones.  The issues always have a theme like My Five Senses or Transportation or Around the House.  They are interactive and even have a Hidden Pictures section!  Every month when it arrives, I sit in the rocking chair browsing through it and know that one day I will read it to our baby.

This is not a commercial or advertisement for the magazine.  I share the information because it is just one example of how our baby is so loved already.  To already have his or her own magazine subscription is a testament to our eagerness to read with our baby and show our love and devotion!  I will share photos of some of the issues in an album soon!  What a fun tradition my mom has passed on from her child to future grandchild!  Thanks Mom!
