To Someone Special,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and look more closely at our lives. We hope this gives you a real glimpse into who we are and what's important to us.

We have been married for 11 years, having tons of adventures through travel and our work with college students, but the greatest adventure of all has been welcoming our daughter last year through adoption. We have also journeyed with many friends who have grown their families through adoption, and we are excited and grateful to continue seeing our family come together in this way.

If you were to consider us as parents for your child, we want you to know we would surround them with a loving community, healthy opportunities for growth, and an environment that leads to a hopeful future. We desire for our kids to have the love and encouragement they need to grow up into who they were created to be.

Though we have not met, you are dear to us. You will be in our thoughts and prayers, as you already have been.

Who We Are

We have been married for 11 years, having met while in college in Iowa. Ben was attracted to Katie immediately, but Katie wasn't easily won over. She made him really work to win her heart, but his perseverance paid off! Our faith in God is the foundation of our lives, and guides our values and the way we see the world.

We are both really easy going, love bringing people together and building relationships, and are always up for an adventure!

We both love to travel, and have been to many cities in the U.S., as well as abroad. We enjoy shopping for treasures when we travel, and finding unique items to bring home and remember our journeys. We enjoy playing tennis and catch together, as well as laughing around a bonfire with good friends.

We work together in college ministry, and spend a lot of time at retreats and conferences guiding students in their faith, helping them make the most of
their lives in college, and developing them to be influencers wherever life takes them after college.

We love being parents to our daughter Kenley, who just turned one, and came into our family through adoption. She is fun, active, sassy, and loves to explore the world around her. We are excited for her to be a big sister.
