Who We Are
We met in 2008 through mutual friends. Our friendship slowly grew into love, and we were married in 2010. Our free time consists of spending time together in a variety of settings - with friends and family sharing a meal, in fellowship with our church community, at a sporting event or concert, taking long walks outside, or traveling together to new places. Our first several years of marriage were a joyous time, but there were sorrowful moments as we tried to grow our family. In September 2016, our lives were forever changed when we were blessed with our son, Jack, through adoption. He is an answered prayer and such a joy to us in our lives. We firmly believe that the Lord is always in the process of redeeming broken situations, and we are excited to see how He will continue to do so on this journey.
If our paths don’t cross, please know that God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” -Proverbs 3:5,6
Jack was born on August 23, 2016. He is full of so much joy, laughter, and energy, and he keeps us on our toes every moment of every day. He’s a curious little guy that loves exploring outside any chance he can get, and he has the biggest smile and zest for life. He will make an amazing big brother someday!
Jack’s birth mom is an incredible woman who loves Jack very much. We flew to meet her a few weeks after Jack was born. The plan had been to meet her before the birth, but Jack decided to arrive earlier than expected. We saw her again a few weeks later at placement day. Since that time, we have stayed in contact with her via text and video chat. We want Jack to always know her and for her to be a part of his life. We think it’s so important for him to be proud of his background and his adoption story.
Fun Facts About Jack: He is part Filipino, African American, and Caucasian. He loves to play with balls and already has an arm like a major league pitcher. His favorite toy is a car, and he’s never met a dog he didn’t like.
