Dear Expectant Parents,

Our heart goes out to you during this time of challenge. Thinking of the future of your child(ren) and their future opportunities for success, and a desire to put them in a home filled with love. You’re looking through all the photo books and the online profiles, the pressure of all the choices, when suddenly…. you see our profile and your heart gets a little lighter. We pray that looking through our profile; you will laugh a little and ask to look at our profile book to laugh even more. We put it together with you in mind and hope that it will give you a glimpse of what life is like in our home. You are our welcomed guest. Come on in! 😊

A little bit about Fawn - From as far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a mama. Working in daycare many years as a Daycare Director and in Children’s Ministry, I have had a chance to be a mama to a lot of people’s children. I truly have a heart for children. I love watching them learn, grow and experience the world around them, and teaching them about how much God loves them and how truly special they are, that they have gifts that can make an enormous impact on the world if they are given the opportunity. I graduated from Bible College with a degree in Children’s Ministry in Oklahoma. After college, I met Gene. I fell in love with the way he is a role model to children. I married a man whom I knew would be a wonderful father. Also, about me…I also enjoy entertaining, large project planning, cooking/baking, gardening, and making people feel at home. I like making people feel comfortable and allowing them to enjoy themselves.

A little bit about Gene - I work as an IT Service Engineer for a large IT company. Honestly, I am a geek and I’m super passionate about technology at home. We are very active in our church as Children's Ministry Pastors. I enjoy football, doing home improvement projects, and spending time with Daniel.

We have always wanted to have children and start a family but after In-vitro three times we were unsuccessful. Having a strong relationship with God was crucial, it got me through. Also having a husband who agrees with and supports the same Christian values was of utmost importance. It was in these times of prayer as a couple, seeking God for his plan for a family, that He led us to adoption. We then reached out to Bethany to start the adoption process. Then one day we got the call from Bethany and our hearts were overwhelmed with joy that birthparents had chosen us…we dropped everything and drove to the hospital to meet them and the unselfish give of life, who became our son Daniel. We still have a Shutterfly website that Daniel’s birthparents have access to 24/7 to see Daniel grow up. We also have the option to see Daniel’s birthparents once a year in the summer. Our lives have been changed forever. Being a parent is the hardest and most rewarding job we have ever had. We are so blessed to have a strong family and friend support network who have encouraged us and demonstrated in front of us how to be parents. It was also the perfect timing and we were ready to bring a child into our home. Now we are ready again, to bring another child into our home. The nursery is ready, the family is ready, and we know that the timing is perfect. There are no surprises to God. He has perfect timing and a perfect plan. Jeremiah 29:11.

So we hope that we can see you soon so that we can get to know you better. Thank-you so much for your time. We are praying for you daily that you will have peace, that you will have wisdom, and you will have strength for the days to come. We are here for you to stand with you during this time.

Talk to you soon,

Gene and Fawn
