We are a family of 7! :) My husband and I met at church 11 years ago. We dated for 3 years, and in 2005 we married. We so enjoy each other’s company and are best friends. I can’t imagine life without him! :) My days are spent taking care of the children and the house. And I LOVE IT. It is such a blessing. Children are a gift from the Lord. My husband is a local truck driver. He is home every night.
Our oldest son, Lane, is 6 years old. He loves being the big brother and enjoys helping his siblings. He also loves farming, and trucks and school.
Anna, is 5 and she is HAPPY. There is no other way to describe her. She was born with spina bifida and it doesn’t keep her from smiling. She has a heart for other children affected by disabilities and DAILY prays for a specific child to find their forever families. She has taught me so much!
Grady is 4, and he is our go-getter. He loves to climb and jump and get into everything. He is very thoughtful and notices details. He also loves farming and anything with wheels.
Wade is 2, and he is my cuddle-bug! He stays close by me most days and loves to sing and dance. He also loves our dog, Rosie.
Aida is 8. She joined our family this year (2013). We adopted her from Armenia. She was born with congenital glaucoma. She is sweet and loves other children
Our Desire to Adopt:
We LOVE children. And we LOVE children with special needs. ALL CHILDREN ARE A GIFT. If God would like us to expand our family again through adoption, we want to! Children are such a blessing.
Our Faith in Christ:
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he took our sins when he died for us. And that HE is the only way we can have salvation. We look forward to eternity with HIM!
Dear Birth Mama,
I pray for you daily. I cannot imagine everything you are feeling right now but know that you are a Hero…because you are choosing LIFE for your precious baby. God knows everything that you are feeling at this moment. And this pregnancy is NOT a surprise to HIM. I pray you find rest in Jesus, today!
Thank you for taking time to look over our profile, and I pray that God guides your decisions and that you have Peace with whatever decision you make. Our family is busy and not small, but we love it! Each child brings so much to our lives. Our lives are hectic at times but worth every moment.
Blessings to you, friend!
