We are Joel and Chris. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and considering us as you make this selfless and difficult decision.

We are a little over 4 years apart in age and we both grew up in rural North Dakota about 45 minutes apart. Even though we lived fairly close to each other we didn’t meet until attending college in the Minneapolis area. Even while we were dating we would talk about how much we desired to have children and be parents one day. After a couple of years of being married we decided to try and start a family. Eventually we got a diagnosis of "unexplained infertility". We greatly desire to be parents and to love a child as our own. We have been blessed with the joy of being uncle Joel and aunt Chris to our 4 nieces and 6 nephews. They bring us so much joy and we absolutely LOVE being in their lives. Three of our nephews are adopted and they are a huge part of why we want to adopt as well. We have talked and prayed about taking this huge step into adoption and we feel very much at peace and are very excited about the child the Lord has chosen for us to become a family together.

Some things we enjoy are: Traveling, having friends over to our home, going to concerts, watching/attending sporting events, golfing, going to coffee shops, cooking, spending time outside, playing with our nieces and nephews, and being with family.

We can't imagine the thoughts, the emotions, and the feelings you are going through as you make this decision.  We are praying for you and also praying for the Lord's will to be done for your child. We know openness is a huge part of adoption and we want to make that a priority for our family. You will always be a huge part of his or her life and we plan on raising our child with an understanding and appreciation for you and the sacrifices you have made. We want you to know how much respect and love we feel for you already and that we will love your child and give everything we have to provide, to protect and to love him or her every day. Thank you so much for considering us.
