Hello Friend, You are doing a beautiful thing and I respect every ounce of your being for it. One of my favorite bible verses and one that sticks with me the most through daily thoughts is Matthew 25:40 “I tell all of you with certainty, since you did it for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.” Jesus is promising you that he has your back. And I am promising you that I will raise this child as my namesake raised Jesus, with complete love and joy in my heart. It was my Masonic brother David that let me know to go to Bethany for adoption. His son had just adopted through them and was telling me about it when I decided to ask Kristi if it was finally time we adopt. You see even though we have been trying to have a child for awhile, we have always considered adoption as well. The Lord really does have our back and he is always there guiding us in our decisions. As Joseph said, you are doing such a special thing in choosing adoption. I know whichever family you choose both you and your child will be blessed with a loving family. I can’t promise you I will give the child the moon, as I am kind of afraid of heights and really not sure how I could actually do such a thing, but I can promise a lifetime of love. This child will be loved by grandparents, uncles, cousins, family friends, church family. We have so many people looking forward to the day we are blessed with being chosen for placement. Both Joseph and I were raised by loving and accepting parents that instilled in us that family is one of the most important things there is. They also taught us though that family is more than blood, they are the people you connect with. We hope that our family and yours is connected by our mutual love for this child and later even further for each other if that is what you want. You and your family will be important because without you this child will be missing a part of their story.

More About Joseph

Amusingly enough Joseph was only the second guy I ever dated. I had all these ideals and so few even turned my head. Joseph snuck up on me though, a friend that stole my heart. He is one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. I wonder daily what I did to be blessed with a man like him. I truly couldn’t ask for a better man to go on this journey with.

More About Kristi

I know the term soulmates gets used alot when people talk about their relationships, and that is the word I use to describe Kristi. She is my perfect match, she makes me whole. She is incredibly sweet and gentle no matter how many times she tells me she’s not. She is an artist who never refuses to limit herself, and a caring, nurturing teacher to her special students. I never imagined I would be so lucky to have her love me, and I know that she will love our child equally.
