To Someone Special,

Hello! We are grateful for the courageous decision you have chosen for you and your child and for taking the time to learn more about us. Our hearts are overflowing with unconditional love that we are looking forward to giving to our future child!

We live an active, positive, and productive life and truly enjoy each other’s company. Adoption was always the plan for us after having biological children; however, since we have experienced fertility issues, adoption is now becoming a blessing earlier than expected. We fondly anticipate being loving parents and creating wonderful memories with our child. We hope this is reflected in our profile, which we thank you for reading.

Who We Are

An interesting fact about us is we actually met on Match.com! We talked on the phone for three weeks before our first date since we lived a couple of hours from each other. Throughout our initial phone conversations, we learned we shared several values, such as the importance of having a family, being a blessing to those around us, and working on being the best version of ourselves every day. These values have continued to make our marriage stronger year after year. We appreciated that both of our Match.com profiles were written from a positive viewpoint and were future focused. We got engaged a year and a half after our first date and married a year and half later! We have been happily married for 13 years.


As mentioned, we live active lives. We exercise three to four times a week and read success principle books on a daily basis. Also, we belong to a wonderful Church and donate essential items to less fortunate kids every month. Depending on the day, we could be at a restaurant (we're foodies!), traveling, sightseeing, and/or catching up with family and friends.

Our Christian Faith is very important to us. Faith truly is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. We have learned Faith is an action word that either compels you to boldly step forward, or patiently sit and be still. Actively engaging in fellowship with God is important not just for our spiritual life, but also for our mental and emotional health. We look forward to sharing with and teaching our child all that we have learned about the Word of God.

We've observed and come to believe that the 80-20 Rule applies to parenting in that 80% of what your child learns from you will be passively caught (by observing your actions) and 20% will be learned by you actively sitting down and teaching and telling your kids certain things. With that in mind, there are a ton of things that we want to actively teach our children, but we aspire to always set a positive example so they will always want to learn from us.

Lastly, it is very important we work towards being the best version of ourselves so we can be a blessing to others. In doing so, we are committed to teaching our child about kindness, responsibility, mutual respect, integrity, and honesty.
