Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our family, and consider us as a possible part in your adoption plan. Though we don’t know you, or your situation, we still feel humbled that you would consider us as a possible family to adopt your child. To give you a quick background on us, April and I met back in 2000 as interns at a drama ministry in Minneapolis, MN that focused on family reconciliation.
We feel humble and grateful that you would consider us!
We fell in love in 2001 while traveling the west coast with our drama team. Soon after coming home from our tour, we were married in May of 2003. We just celebrated our 15 yr anniversary, and it has been the ride of our lives :) We are best friends, we still make each other laugh, and love to go on dates (movies, dinner, Disney, mini golf, and any amusement park with roller coasters)!
After a few years of marriage, we began trying to have children and encountered fertility issues. This was one of the hardest things we've ever been through. After 7 years of trying, and with the help of IVF, we were able to conceive our son, Nathan, in 2014. He's our miracle man, and is a huge blessing to us. We also have a dog named Burg. He's 14 yrs old, and in some ways was our first child ;)
April and I own a photography & cinematography company. When we are not taking pictures/video at an event, we work from our home. April works 1-2 days during the week, and is a stay at home mom the rest of the time, while I work full time.
We are very social people, and spend time with family and friends a few times a week. Our doors are always open for people, and we truly enjoy and value community. April and I also love the Lord very much. Both of us grew up in Christian families, and value a relationship with Christ.
