Choosing adoption is a choice that takes strength, honesty, compassion, and of course, love.
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. It is an honor, and we are incredibly thankful for your consideration. We cannot begin to understand what you are thinking and feeling. We know that you must already be so in love with your child to choose adoption. It is a choice that takes strength, honesty, compassion, and of course, love. If chosen we will love and build your child up to his/her greatest potential every day of their life and never take being their adoptive parents for granted. We will pray for you in this difficult decision as God leads you to the right adoptive parents for your child.
We didn't know where God would lead us, but we've trusted in Him all along the way. The same applies to our family.
Light Up Louisville!
Our very first "official" date consisted of us going to an event called Light Up Louisville. We both grew up in Southern Indiana and Louisville, KY is right across the river from us. Light Up Louisville is a parade the city of Louisville has where Santa Claus comes down Main Street and turns on all the Christmas lights in downtown Louisville. It's been a tradition of ours to attend Light Up Louisville every year, and we haven't missed one since 2013. Dating for us consisted of typical date night stuff like dinner and a movie. We are both avid sports fans and some dates would consist of going to see our favorite sports teams. Being from Indiana, Emily is a die-hard Indiana Hoosier fan and Tim is a huge Louisville Cardinals fan. We got married in 2016 in southern Indiana in the very same room we met during church on that first, random Sunday. We have no doubt that God brought us together. Our wedding was perfect. It was full of laughs about tater tots (what we ate on our unofficial first date), crying when Indiana loses (Emily is that passionate about Indiana sports), and man buns (Tim used to have a man bun). It was also very special for us to tie our cord of three strands and say our vows in front of our family and friends. Our relationship can best be described as an adventure. We both love to travel, and since we met in 2013 in Indiana, we have moved to Chicago, Illinois (a city very near and dear to our hearts), and now reside in Texas. We didn't know where God would lead us, but we've trusted in Him all along the way. The same applies to our family. We never knew we wouldn't be able to have our own children, but excited for the adventure of adoption and meeting you as well as our future child.
We prayed and have found hope, peace, joy, and confidence in God leading us to adoption.
Cute matching shirts!
We are so excited to grow our family through adoption. Adoption has always held a special place in our hearts. Emily's older brother was adopted by her dad. Emily also had a family member growing up that adopted two babies only a few weeks apart. We also wanted to have our own, if possible. Emily's dream has always been to get married and start a family. We would talk about names for our future children even when we were just dating. When we started trying to get pregnant, it wasn't working. We tried for about a year and a half before Emily went to the doctor. They did lots of bloodwork, tests, and an ultrasound; however, they found nothing wrong. Unfortunately, after a few tests, Tim was diagnosed as infertile. We prayed and have found hope, peace, joy, and confidence in God leading us to adoption. We are so excited and trust in His plan and perfect timing to lead us to our child through adoption!
