We, Mike and Jen, met in 2012 and got married a year later due to having a very deep connection from the start (Mike would say, “love at first sight”) and feeling God’s affirmation after much prayer. As a couple, we enjoy spending time outdoors and engaging in activities like hiking, camping, walking our dog Maggie, going to the beach, and swimming. We also love spending time with family and friends and sharing meals together.
At first, we thought we wanted to have one biological child and adopt our second child, as we have always had a heart for adoption. Jen has worked as a foster care social worker for many years, so she knows the many struggles of children in need of a forever home and desires to provide the love and care they deserve. Mike is in the process of earning his Master of Social Work as he too has a big heart for helping those in need and is excited to adopt. While trying to get pregnant for about a year, we both felt our hearts tugged more and more towards adoption, and we felt led by God to adopt a baby, even if able to conceive, and to adopt a second child through foster care.
Since we would like the experience of raising a baby, we decided to do a domestic infant adoption. The only downside of this option is that it is a more financially burdensome choice. We are hoping that if you feel inclined to support us in our goal of adoption, that you will consider helping us fund this grand adventure. Whatever you can give is much appreciated. This AdoptionBridge page is one option to make it easier to give towards this cause. Thank you and God bless you.
