We were both raised in Christian homes and became Christians during our childhood. We went to a Christian college where we became more committed to our faith and commitment to loving others.
We are passionate about seeking justice for vulnerable people and showing compassion for all people from various walks of life. We are convinced that our life calling is to "seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly before God and men" Micah 6:8.
|A Typical Weekend...|
You can find us spending slow mornings with a book and a cup of coffee or tea, supporting our local football team or watching Liverpool Football (the kind you actually kick with your foot) with friends. We enjoy being self-proclaimed foodies in a town full of great restaurants. We love a good home improvement project and are currently working on painting the nursery and setting up the crib! We really like to garden but are not great at keeping up with it throughout the summer-- hopefully this year we will be better! Weekend nights with friends and good food are often penciled in on the calendar for the weekend. We are about to start trying a new church, which we are excited about and interested to see how we grow and learn through this experience.
Our dogs, Keswick and Cora, are a huge part of our hearts. Keswick is the boxer/retriever and is 6 years old. She loves to snuggle, get belly rubs, EAT SUPPER, and go on walks. She loves kids and is very content to curl up next to you and spend the afternoon tucked on the couch. Cora showed up on our doorstep at 10 weeks old when the kids in our neighborhood found her in a bush. We think she is a Border Collie/ Aussie/ Pyrenees mix and is now 1 1/2. She loves to run in the park, go on walks, and chew on her bone almost as much as she loves hanging out with people when they come over and sitting weirdly on our laps.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. We are eagerly awaiting the day we get to hold our baby in our arms and introduce them to the village of people supporting us. We look forward to reading to them every evening and teaching him or her Spanish. We look forward to connecting and learning more about you. We would love to discuss your hopes and desires for the future of your child and have an open connection with you at your comfort level. We promise to provide your child with a loving, stable, and supportive upbringing where they can grow up knowing their beautiful adoption story.
