Even though this profile is just a small picture of who we are, we hope you can sense how much we already care for you and how seriously we respect your decision of sacrifice. Please know that we have been praying for you for quite some time now and trust in God’s plan for each of us. We hope to be able to meet you soon.

More About Our Family

Both of us grew up in San Diego, CA where all of our family still lives today. This means at least one trip back to California each year to see grandparents/parents, aunts, uncles, and lots of cousins. We also enjoy when family visits us in Michigan. If we aren’t planning a trip to California, we are probably planning our next adventure whether it is a 3 day weekend exploring somewhere we haven’t been before or continuing the tradition of traveling to a new international destination each year. Our neighborhood is perfect for raising children as we have the best neighbors who have become like family to us. They are always willing to watch Eden and spoil her so much. We have lots of BBQs together in the summer and pizza nights in the winter. We have a playground in our neighborhood that we walk to almost every night after dinner in the summertime. Many years ago, while we were still dating, we had a conversation about how adoption was something that we would like to have be a part of our family in the future. After experiencing infertility for a few years, adoption became a part of our family a lot sooner than we originally thought. But we would not have it any other way! We became parents when our daughter’s birth mom chose to bless us with the gift of her daughter just about 2 years ago. We still have contact with Eden’s birth mom and siblings through frequent texting and visits whenever possible. Having a relationship with her birth family is something that we will always value; however, we understand that every situation is unique and we are committed to honoring your wishes in this decision making process- especially when it comes to openness.

About Scott


More About Scott

One thing I love most about Scott is that whatever he is doing, he gives 100%. What first attracted me to him was the fact that he never left anybody out when he organized social events in high school & college. I continued to see him give 100% effort in all other areas of his life; like his schooling, his job, and his love for sports. And this remains true since Scott has become a dad. He loves Eden more than I could have ever imagined. Scott is a fully involved, hands on dad who never complains about doing dishes or changing diapers. He lives fully in the moment when he plays with Eden and being a dad brings him incredible joy. Scott likes being active and on the go, but he also values a quiet evening of playing games or watching a movie. His leadership & other skills causes many younger males to look up to him and he hopes to be a positive mentor in their lives through church groups & sports.

About Beth


More About Beth

When I first got to know Beth, we were both in high school. I noticed her quiet, loyal and thoughtful personality. Getting to know her over the last ten years, I've come to see so much more in her. Beth knows how to live life to the fullest by taking joy in the little things. She comes up with all sorts of games to play with Eden and every one of them ends up with big smiles and lots of laughs. God has blessed Beth in everything she's done. In three years time, she worked her way up from the administrative assistant at a local non-profit, to later, giving a speech to over 300 people as the director. Seeing the joy she has as a stay at home mom now makes it obvious that God is blessing her in this season of life too. I can not imagine a better person to parent with and I've never known anyone who could love her family more.
