We are Aaron and Mary, and our kids' names are Lyla and Rex. Aaron is an Assistant Technical Director at our church and has been there since 2006, and Mary is an Assistant Director at a childcare center and she has been there since 2005. Mary was diagnosed at 19 with severe endometriosis and was not expected to easily become pregnant, therefore both Rex and Lyla were miracles as they were both conceived naturally and easily. We are so grateful that God gave us 2 amazing kids before Mary had to have her hysterectomy. Rex is 9 and loves karate, board games, video games, playing outside with friends and reading. Lyla is 6 and loves soccer, soccer, tea parties, babies, and playing outside with friends! We have had a heart for adoption for many years and decided as a family this year to start the process. Lyla and Rex talk often of their future younger sibling and they cannot wait to help care for them, and we pray for our future child and for their birth parents every day. One of our nephews, Gabriel, is adopted and is very excited about having an adopted cousin one day. Gabriel and his adoption story are a big part of what made us fall in love with the idea of adopting ourselves. We know that while it will bring us great joy to bring another child into our family in this way, there will be heartbreak and loss for their birth parents and we hope to keep that connection open so that their birth parent knows how they are doing and growing as the years go on, and so that they can know about where and who they came from as well. We hope that as you look through our profile it will give you a glimpse into our family and how much we love each other, our families, our friends, and our future child.

About Aaron

More About Aaron

Aaron has an incredible voice and is a talented musician. He is humble, loving, hilarious, generous, hard working, reliable, and kind. I couldn't have picked a better partner and father for our kids. He loves Jesus, his family, his community, and his work.My favorite Bible verse reminds me of Aaron. Micah 6:8: "He told you O man what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God." He is constantly striving to become a better human in all aspects of his life and he inspires me to do the same.

About Mary

More About Mary

Mary is the most genuinely good person I know. She is funny, kind, thoughtful, caring, loving, and a true servant. She is always there for me, our children, and our friends and family. She is the first to jump in to help others in hard times. She is a great listener and encourager. She adores her kids and of course me! She is hilarious, not always on purpose, but has a great sense of humor. There is nobody else I would want to have as a partner in this life.
