Hello & Thank You

We are excited for you to consider us to be adoptive parents for your child. Your journey to create this adoption plan is difficult and we thank you for considering us.  We have a lot of love to give and hope to grow our family through adoption. 

Parenting has become our main focus and the biggest joy of our lives. We have three children, however God decided to call back two of his angels at their birth. The loss of James and Josie led to much soul searching and, through healing, ultimately strengthened our marriage. Early in our marriage we talked about wanting to expand our family through adoption. After losing our two babies and with our family's support, we were ready to open our hearts and our family to adoption. 

We were blessed with our daughter Luisa through adoption. Now we are ready to begin our adoption journey again in hopes to grow our family. Adoption means so much to us and has always been a big part of our lives. Our extended family has also grown through adoption; five of Emily’s seven cousins were adopted. 

Our active family is filled with love, laughter, and respect. Your child will know that they are loved by you. They will grow up with a fun-loving big sister and extended family (including two grandmas who love to spoil their grandkids). We will provide a safe home and neighborhood, education, and opportunities to explore and try new things.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts as you consider us for your child.


Jim & Emily
