We are so thankful you are taking the time to consider us to raise your precious little one. We hope that our photos and video have given you some insight into our day to day lives, but want you to know that our future baby will be the greatest joy to us. Not only are we excited to have a little one to love, we have a whole host of family and friends who cannot wait to welcome them with open arms. We have been married almost 4 years and have known since before we got married that we wanted to have a child together. Josh has his two boys, one who is now and adult and the other one will be at the end of the year but he’s very excited about this new chapter of our lives! Adoption has been something we have talked casually but we really felt like our hearts were being pulled in this direction when we were having trouble conceiving naturally. We decided that it was time we follow our hearts and pursue growing our family through adoption and we have just lit up with excitement through this journey. We know that adoption will forever be a part of our child and plan to start telling them their adoption story from day one. We would like to create a life book and have everything from ultrasound pictures and continue throughout their lives. We would love for you to be a part of that if it is something you are comfortable with. We want them to know about their birth mother and family because that family is an important part of who they are, and it always will be. We want the best for this child, and would love to be able to send you photos and letters along the way so you know your child is happy and cared for. We would also be happy to keep in contact through texts, emails and phone calls, to let you know how they are doing. We will always be honest with our child about how their birth mother loves them so much they allowed us to be their parents. The more stories we hear from adoptees and adoptive parents the more of an open adoption we want, so we would love to hear what your hope is when it comes to this part of our story. We will do everything in our power to make the hopes and dreams you have for your child a reality. We will give them unconditional love, the ability to choose their own path and the support to achieve their dreams. We will be the type of parents that teach them all the sports and academics they want and allow them to choose which direction they want to go. We are a Christian couple and attend church weekly and are looking forward to our child coming and learning in Sunday School with the other kids. We live in southern Missouri where we own a farm which gives us plenty of land to be able to explore and make memories with our child. We believe farm life will help to teach this child responsibility and work ethic as well as being able to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors. We can’t wait to go to school events, games, or whatever they choose to be a part of. We also love to travel and can’t wait to share that passion with our new addition. We are praying daily that when the right birth mom reads our profile they will just “know” and reach out to us.
