FC: Adam and Katie

1: Dear Expectant Parents: First of all, we just want to say that we are praying for you. Whatever your circumstances are, please know that you and the child you are carrying are being prayed for by our family. We hope that you will clearly know what is best and have peace in whatever you decide. Thank you for taking the time to look at our family profile. We hope that this book will give you a taste of our family, our love for one another, and help you get to know us. Through scripture, prayer, wise counsel, and a deep personal desire...we have taken this step of faith to adopt. We realize that considering adoption is a step of faith for you as well. May God lead, support, and keep you as you take this difficult, yet loving step. Love, Adam & Katie

2: Faith, Family, Fun... three key ingredients in our lives

3: MAKING MEMORIES | We would be honored to be chosen to raise this precious child. We have this photo (of the empty chair) in our house and we continually pray for our family to grow through adoption. We are praying for God's will in your lives and ours. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart...and He will direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

4: The Story of Us: | We met each other in college, and over the years God grew us into becoming best friends, and then we were married. We are very honest with each other, we like to cuddle, talk, watch movies, be out in nature, travel, read books, and listen to music. We both enjoy talking with people about their relationships and their faith; encouraging them to grow in both.

5: { | { | LOVE | We have been married for almost 12 years, and we keep growing more in love all the time. We are committed to one another, and enjoy spending time together.

6: "We will not keep silent...we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord" -Psalm 78 | About Adam: I like to be outside! I graduated from college with an Outdoor Education degree. I enjoy my job, working with young people. I also like hunting (especially with my Dad and brothers). I like sports, especially soccer. I am adventurous, love my family. My favorite part of the day is coming home to them.

7: About Katie: I like to be creative! I like to scrapbook, write, and sing. I write poetry and songs. I have a small photography business. Before we had kids I was a high school special education teacher. I love being a stay-at-home mom. It is a joy to watch the kids learn and grow. | "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing." -Zephaniah 3:17

8: Our Children

9: Brooke is 9 years old. She is joyful, enthusiastic, and has been praying for us to adopt for awhile...she is a great helper, reader, likes singing Taylor Swift songs, and loves horses. Kale is 6 years old. He is energetic and inquisitive. He likes playing with legos and pretending he is in Star Wars. He enjoys all kinds of sports and likes math. Banner is almost 5 years old. He is an active, strong, and adventurous boy. He likes to play with his siblings, cuddle, look at books, and dress up like superheroes.

10: Memorable moments together

11: We make eating dinner together a priority. We both have fond memories (from our childhoods) of eating, laughing, and sharing around the dinner table. | Our Home

12: so many | We like to go on family outings and travel as well. On one trip we went to the Creation Museum in Kentucky and spent the night in a teepee! We also enjoyed going to Chicago with Katie's parents and hearing her sister perform in the park. We recently traveled to South Carolina for my cousin's wedding. We live in the country, but are not too far from a large town. We like visiting new places, and tapping into the culture of larger cities nearby.

13: Each memory we keep with care means future happiness to share. | LIVE WELL LAUGH OFTEN LOVE MUCH

14: Our parents, siblings, nieces & nephews are very important to us. We live about 30 minutes from one set of grandparents and two hours for the other set.We often see each other and get together for birthdays, holidays and just to spend time together. Our families are very supportive and we are close with them.

15: We both were blessed with secure and loving homes. Both of our parents celebrated 35 years of marriage this past summer. They are wonderful with their grandchildren. We are so thankful for them.

16: Adventure

17: We have a nice-sized home (3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms) a large yard and access to beautiful wooded trails. Our neighbors have horses and farm animals. We also volunteer at a camp and enjoy its fun activities.

18: Fun | Togetherness | Love

19: Our Life... | Adventure

20: When we adopt we plan on Katie continuing to stay home. Since Adam works close to home he is able to be a present and involved Dad. We have a strong support system. We have numerous friends who have adopted and will continue to network with them and Bethany Christian Services as we prepare to be the best parents we can be for this baby. Our children are very excited about having a sibling. We have prayed so many prayers for this little one and will continue to do so all their life. We have a lot of love and time to give to this baby. Thank you for considering our family as a potential fit for your adoption plans. May God bless and keep you throughout this decision process. Love, Adam & Katie
