Dear Birth Family,

Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. You have made the most selfless decision in putting the needs of your child first and choosing life. We are so grateful for you! Although we do not know each other, we have been praying for you for a while now. We have been praying that God would surround you with immense peace and comfort as you walk through this challenging season. We pray that you would have confidence that God is with you and that you are never alone. God has plans for you and your baby and your situation is of no surprise to Him. We cannot begin to imagine what you must be feeling, but please know that God is good and that He will work out every detail. We are excited to see what all God has planned through this journey of adoption. We will continue to pray that God would direct you in every aspect of your story. We look forward to getting to know more about you.

Our Adoption Story

Our journey begins with many years of infertility and loss. We have undergone many years of  pain and loss through treatments the were proven to be unsuccessful. However, through it all we can now see how God has used that season of pain and strife to prepare us for this moment. We can now see that this was always God's plan for our family. We feel so blessed to have this story because it has strengthened and grown us to be the man and woman that God has called us to be. We believe that adoption is a chapter in our story that God is creating in our midst. We are holding on to His promises that He can do anything and believing that He will. We feel honored that God has chosen us for this story and are walking by faith that God is not done with our story yet.


Our Promise to You

We promise that your child will be deeply and unconditionally loved. Loved by us and our close family and friends. We will give him or her a voice and will validate their feelings. We will always tell him or her the truth and strive to create a secure home. We will teach him or her about Jesus and how they are fearfully and wonderfully made. We will encourage him or her to dream and give them the resources to follow those dreams. And we will always tell him or her that you love them and did the most heroic act of love by choosing life.


Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves.
