Dear Birthparent,

Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We respect the choice you have made & are very grateful for the love & self-sacrifice you have made for your child. We are excited to be able to introduce ourselves to you.

We met 13 years ago & have been married for almost 10 years now. Our struggle with infertility has only made our marriage stronger & helped us to lean on each other & God to get through any struggles that may come along. Once we learned that we had infertility issues, we were very disappointed. However, we knew that God had a plan & after some prayer, we felt led towards adoption. We have some family members that have been adopted & know what a wonderful thing adoption can be. Family is very important to us & we have had great examples of long marriages to learn from. Both of our parents have had long marriages, along with Brad’s grandparents being married for over 65 years now.

We enjoy camping with our trailer that we purchased a couple of years ago. We have gone to different areas of Michigan, along with a trip to Wisconsin with our trailer. We have also had the privilege of taking a vacation to Alaska & along the East Coast. Along with camping, we also enjoy hiking & biking. We have discovered that this is one of the best ways to experience God’s creation & enjoy it’s beauty. Above all, we just enjoy spending time with each other.

We both have full time employment in the West Michigan area. Brad drives truck locally, so he is home every day. Jen works as an office manager at a flower shop. We both enjoy our jobs immensely & feel this is where God has placed us. We value our education & feel that it has helped us to perform the jobs that we have been blessed with.

We have been waiting to welcome a child into our family & into our home for a long time. We want to thank you for considering us as an adoptive family for your child.
