This is Us
Hello! We’re the Marker family, and we’re excited and grateful that you’d take a little time to learn more about us.
Hello! We’re the Marker family, and we’re excited and grateful that you’d take a little time to learn more about us. We met when we were about 9 or 10 and were involved in similar extracurricular activities growing up. Right before we graduated high school, we kind of had an “ah ha!” moment and started dating. We dated for three and a half years, most of which was long (and sometimes very long) distance before we got married. Life is a roller coaster, but we find joy in trying our best, loving each other, and helping those around us. We love to spend time together, whether it’s playing board games, taking walks around the neighborhood, exploring historical sites and museums, cooking, watching sports, or spending time with friends. We believe that alongside God, family is the most important thing in life. Our family is focused on loving and coming to know God and His Son, Jesus Christ, loving and serving others, and becoming the greatest version of ourselves that we can be.
Can't wait to meet you!
We wish you all the best on your journey! We know that life takes us different paths and that we each have our own path to follow. We understand that you need to do what is best for your family.
We’ve both wanted to have children for as long as we can remember. Even though we don’t have children of our own yet, we are already building a home of faith, love, respect, and laughter. We hope to teach our children to love and respect others simply because they are fellow beings on this journey of life. We are also excited for the chance to teach them about the beauty of the world and help them develop their talents and interests. Most importantly, we are committed to helping them know how loved they are by so many people. We wish you all the best on your journey! We know that life takes us different paths and that we each have our own path to follow. We understand that you need to do what is best for your baby/family, but should you decide that adoption is the route to go, we’d be honored to love and care for your child as our own. If you want to get to know more about us, we’d love to talk with you!
