Hello! We are Joe and Kali and we are honored you would take the time to learn more about our family. We recently celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary and feel as though we have many blessings in our life including our health, family and friends who love us, financial stability, and unending hope through our relationship with Christ. Joe and Kali met in the Summer of 2011. Shortly after we began dating, Kali started having serious heart problems. Kali eventually required a heart transplant in the Fall of 2011. Needless to say, these serious life circumstances bonded us quickly and we were married in December 2012. Kali is in excellent health now but because of the medication she will always need to take, she will be unable to safely bear a child. We feel our lives are full and blessed, but we desire the addition of a child to make our family complete.
We live in a three bedroom home with a nice fenced-in backyard. There are three parks within walking distance of our house as well as a walking trail that we frequent often. We are involved with our church and both participate in different aspects of serving there. Joe serves on the welcoming team and Kali serves in the children's program. We also enjoy meeting with our small group from our church each week.
Joe works as a schoolteacher and coach. He was recently promoted to head baseball coach at the high school. Kali is a social worker and is employed as a children's therapist. If we are blessed with a child, we would stay home to care for the baby for the first several weeks, then the baby would be enrolled in a child care program. We enjoy spending time with our families, being active together, going on date nights, going to concerts, watching movies, and spending time together, whatever that may be.
On both sides of our families, the child we hope to adopt will be the first grandchild. Our parents and siblings are ecstatic for the future child we hope to adopt and are fully supportive of whatever we may need throughout this process. We are very close with our extended families and greatly value our relationships with them. We would also be open to having a continued relationship with the birth parent of our future child, whether it be contact via letters, emails, photos, or occasional visits.
Lastly, we are humbly asking for financial support through this adoption journey. Adoption costs are high, around $30,000 in total. While Joe and Kali both work full-time and have been saving diligently, we simply don't have the thousands of dollars needed to put towards this adoption. Through this website, we are allowed to raise 1/3 of our total adoption costs through donations. These donations will go directly towards our adoption agency to be used towards our adoption. If you are able, we would ask that you would consider giving toward our financial goal of $10,000 to bring our child home. If you are not able to give financially, we would still appreciate your prayers for our future adopted child, the birthparent(s), and our family. We cannot thank you enough for all of the support you have already shown us through your prayers and financial consideration.

We are praying for you guys as you walk through the adoption process. We can't wait to see how the Lord provides and grows your family.
You guys will be great parents!
My son and daughter-in-law adopted a precious baby boy 4 yrs ago, so I know what you are going through! Dont lose faith! We had a couple false alarms, but out of the blue, 3 days before Christmas they received a call that a birth mother chose them and was at the hospital in labor! We jumped in the car and drove 8 hours! Best Christmas present ever!

Adopting a child is born from our hearts and you two have BIG Hearts. May GOD Bless you both. Love Elizabeth and Cody
Thank you for your willingness to adopt.
Skiatook has been a blessing to my business. Coach Faircloth is loved by my stepkids, Madeline, Tori, Corinne, and Garison. On behalf of my wife, Angelia, and our business, it's our pleasure.

I am so excited for you, the grandparents-to-be and the great-grandparents-to be!
