The first thing we want to tell you is that even though we haven’t met you, we love you! You are brave and courageous, and we can’t begin to imagine all that you are going through. We are praying for you, and hope that you find peace and comfort on this journey.
We’ve been married for 13 years, and have three wonderful kids: Evelyn (biological, 2011), Jack (adopted, 2015), and Walter (biological, 2017). We have always planned on having a family with both adopted and biological children. In fact, we talked about adopting before we even talked about marriage! We love having a big family, and love that our kids always have siblings around to play with and grow up with.
We live in Washington state, and are blessed to live close to Amy’s family. We get to spend a lot of time with them, and our kids get to have lots of fun adventures with their grandparents and aunts and uncles! Marcus’ family is in the Midwest, and we get to visit them every summer. Both of our families are supportive and loving, and are excited to welcome a new family member.
Marcus is the lead pastor at a small church, and Amy works part time in direct sales. We love to have family and friends over to our house (Marcus is a great cook!), play board games, and go on walks and adventures together as a family. We live in a quiet neighborhood where we can easily walk to parks, the library, and a local bakery where the kids love to get donuts with sprinkles!
We hope that this book gives you a glimpse of our lives and our hearts. We are excited to welcome another child into our family, and we want you to know that we will love this child fully and make sure that he/she loves and appreciates the woman who loved them enough to bring them to our family. We love you, we’re thankful for you, and we are praying for you!
Marcus and Amy
