Dear Expectant Parent, 

First off, we cannot pretend to know how difficult this choice is for you and respect the courage it must take. We would also like to thank you for taking the time to consider us and would be honored to tell you a bit about ourselves.

My name is Justin. I am the oldest of 6 siblings. I grew up in a small town in Michigan. When I was young, I could almost always be found outside playing one sport or another.  I was also in Boy Scouts, played several musical instruments, and went to church. I come from a pretty close-knit family. We get together regularly for holidays, birthdays (there are a lot), and just to hang out.  I still enjoy physical activity. These days, it consists mostly of softball and running.

My name is Kari. I am the youngest of the family. I have 2 sisters that picked on me a lot, out of love that is. I grew up in Michigan and lived in the same house all my life until I got married. When I had free time when I was younger I enjoyed softball, dance class, playing outside with my friends, and going to the lake we lived close to. Also, we only lived 2 minutes from a mall that you could find me at often. I come from a very close family and we get together on a regular basis. 

We met in 1997 and started dating soon after. We got married and bought a house in 2002. Together, we enjoy going for walks, camping, tubing on the river, playing cornhole (the bean bag game), and taking short trips to get away. We enjoy a fairly quiet life. We spend a lot of time with family and friends, but also enjoy staying at home and watching Netflix. We are hard-working and have been at our jobs for a long time. We also love dogs, but currently don’t have any.

We have been trying to start a family for a long time. When it became clear it wasn’t going to happen on its own, we decided to try IVF. We tried several cycles of this with no luck and started looking at adoption. The more we learned about it, the more it seemed right. We have the room in our home and our hearts for a little angel.

Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us a little bit. 

God bless,

Justin and Kari
