first thing we want you to know is that we are praying for you daily. We want

strong you are.
live in a small town, somewhere that has enough stores and restaurants to keep
things interesting, but small enough that you run into someone you know nearly every
time you go into one. We are part of a supportive, loving community that is
even now helping us accomplish our dream of adopting a baby. We’re also only a
couple hours away in several directions from big cities that offer a variety of
events to enjoy.
is a hard-working, loving, sweet and funny man who loves his family with all
his heart. He enjoys being outdoors, working with our cattle, horses, or dogs
and tinkering on his tractors and trucks. He can be counted on to help anyone
who needs an extra hand and gives generously of his time and knowledge. He can
be a quiet but strong leader, whether helping with youth ministry and scouts or
playing in the praise band. He is a man of many talents and continues to be
open to learning new things whenever he can.

heart. She is focused on her family and wants nothing but the best for them.
She is very knowledgeable and is willing to learn new things to help minimize
the gaps between those she cares for. She has many talents that include cooking

extremely crafty by making/ designing many of the items that we offer in our
small business. She has, over the years given of herself to many groups within
our church to help the youth of all ages. Christy loves to spend time reading
her books, even if she has read them several times! She helps me any time I ask regardless of what it is I may need, and is willing to help me and others try
to improve our processes to make things easier for us.

extended family as well. We belong to a church that feels like an even bigger
family that provides many opportunities for us as well as for the children of
the congregation to grow in love. We have both been honored to find ways we can
serve in our church that bring us joy.
will celebrate our tenth anniversary this summer, and look forward to many more
years to come. We enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer, and hope to be
able to share those with your child as he or she grows.
truly believe that God will open the right doors for us to adopt a child, and
that you are part of His plan for our family. We have so much love to give, and
want you to know the baby that comes into our lives will be treasured as a
