Michael and Becca’s desire to become parents began way back in their “dating days”. Each have a strong connection with children, with Michael growing up with numerous young cousins and Becca being an elementary school teacher. When they married in 2014, Becca and Michael knew after a few years of married life they would love to try and grow a family.
During the early years of their marriage, Michael and Becca heard a sermon about adoption that incredibly moved them. Adoption, they realized, was essentially the Gospel lived out. It’s a duty and a calling in the Christian faith, and they felt the tug on their hearts to pray about how adoption might be a part of their lives one day.
When the time eventually came, growing a family biologically proved to be difficult. Medical explanations were given, and Becca and Michael prayed intently on their next steps.
Through careful prayer, Michael and Becca felt led to pursue adoption to grow their family. Adoption had been on their heart for years, so there was no hesitation pursuing this path to parenthood.
Michael and Becca are approved and ACTIVE with a private adoption agency. They are pursuing domestic, newborn adoption of either gender and any race.
They are passionate about open adoption and are committed to making sure their child knows their adoption story from an early age.
Funds raised are going towards the adoption agency fee and attorney fees. Michael and Becca have been blessed with a $4,000 matching grant from We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.
