Our Adoption Story

Dan and Katie
Dan and Katie

We met while we were in college and enjoyed spending time together; we've never stopped! Before we began dating, we started attending the same church. We both knew our Christian faith was a priority; we saw a great love of God in the other person. After four years of dating, Dan proposed. We have been married for over five years and have a home that we love in a neighborhood that we love.

We have wanted to adopt for many years, feeling a calling to provide a nurturing home and supportive upbringing to however many children the Lord decides to provide for us. We bought our house with this dream of raising a family in mind.

We hope that you will join us in our adoption journey and help us to start a family centered around Christ. If you feel led to pray for us in our journey, we would so appreciate that! If you feel led to and are able to give financially, we would so appreciate that! We have been awarded a matching grant up to $5,000.
