S: Our Adoption Profile

FC: Bryan, Lisa, Faith, Nicholas & Daniel

1: Dear Birthmother, We would like to thank you for taking the time to read our profile and getting to know who we are. We can't imagine how difficult of a decision this has been for you, but please know how much we admire you and your strength to make such a selfless decision for the sake of your baby. The gift of life is the most precious gift you could give to your child. We pray that God continues to give you wisdom, strength and peace as you consider adoption for your child. We invite you to take a look into our lives through this book and to get to know us better. As you do, we will trust Him completely to guide you in this important decision.

2: Bryan & Lisa | Bryan & Lisa

3: Our Story | We are Bryan and Lisa and we met 16 years ago. We instantly knew that we were meant to be together. We became engaged within 5 months and married 6 months after that. We have a wonderful relationship, strongly rooted in love and trust. After being married for 3 years, we have had 3 biological children. Faith was born in 2000, Nicholas in 2002. and Daniel was born in 2004. They are all amazing and absolute miracles. We became pregnant again in 2006, but in our 6th month of pregnancy we found out that our precious son, Josiah was no longer alive. After 17 hours of labor, we delivered our baby boy on November 3rd, 2006 and buried him on November 6th. This event has forever changed our lives. Even though we don't know why this happened, we have learned to trust God in the things that we don't understand. God had given us such a strong desire to adopt a child long before the loss of our son, and it has never left us. He has been with us through our darkest nights and deepest valleys. We have always felt that our family was not complete, but through adoption we believe that God has a plan for our family. We also believe that God has a plan for you as well, and it is one of goodness and love. | Our Story

4: Bryan | I am Bryan and I am 39 years old. I own a financial planning and investment firm and take great pleasure in providing for my family. I am a very personable individual who never meets a stranger. I love to play with my kids and act like a kid myself. I enjoy working, but also take time to relax on the beach, play on the floor with the kids or hit the baseball outside with them. I enjoy being involved with my church and reaching out to others. Reading and doing yard work are also enjoyable to me. Family time is always the best though, just spending time with my wife and children.

I am a stay at home mom and sub at my church's preschool. Being a wife and a mother means everything to me. I love taking care of my family and our home. I enjoy interior decorating, baking with the kids, reading and working out. Decorating the house at the holidays is a passion of mine.

17: happiness is...

19: We are a very close family with Christ as the center. We love and respect each other and keep the lines of communication open at all times. We are a family that forgives each other, looks out for one another and loves being together. Some of our favorite things to do are spending time in the summer at our condo in Panama City Beach, Florida. We have a lot of fun in the sun. We stay out on the beach for hours building sand castles, playing in the waves, or walking along the shore. Back at home we enjoy family walks in the evening, going out for ice cream, picnics in the park and camp outs in the back yard. Every Friday night we have "movie night" and let the kids camp out on our bedroom floor in sleeping bags, make popcorn and watch a rented movie. We are very involved with our church and attend church activities often. We have been members at our church for almost 15 years. It is our second family.

20: Our Home | the back of the house

21: We live in a developed subdivision, close to shopping, school and restaurants, yet still have the feel of the country. We are so blessed to live in a spacious house with 4 bedrooms and a large playroom. Our home sits on 5 acres of land, where we see all kinds of wildlife including deer, hawks and owls. On summer days we love to have friends over to swim in our built-in pool as we overlook the beautiful view and eat outdoors. We also enjoy going on long nature walks and hikes. | the hearth room | the great room | the pool

22: Daniel, Lisa, Nicholas, Grandma & Faith | Cousins Jacob, Joshua and Sarah with Daniel, Nicholas & Faith | Grandpa & Han | We come from large and loving families with many aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. We are all very involved in each others lives. We have some family that live out of town, but many of our family members live close by. Family gatherings are always fun for the children because there are so many cousins, and they are all very close. We see each other often and make it a point to keep in touch on a daily or weekly basis. They are all very eager to welcome a new addition to our growing family. | Cousin Sarah & Faith | Cousins Sarah, Audrey, & Olivia

23: Nana and PaPa | Uncle Fred, Aunt Mikyoung, and cousin Han | PaPa, Nana, cousins Audrey, Olivia, Isaiah & Noah, & Uncle David

24: Niko | Niko

25: Niko is our 4-year-old German Shepherd dog. He is an awesome watchdog and loves being around the kids. He is very playful and gentle with them. He cries if the kids go outside without him, and continues until we let him out to play with them. He is not allowed in the upstairs of our home, but one night he quietly crept upstairs and we found him sleeping in between the boys' beds, "protecting" them. He's a sweet dog.

26: "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

27: We hope we have been able to give you a better picture of who we really are. We may not be a perfect family, but when we fall we get back up and keep going. We strive to provide a safe and loving home for our children, whom we love unconditionally. We are very excited about expanding our family through adoption, and promise to love this child unconditionally as well. We will be willing to share as much of your child's life with you as you feel comfortable. The frequency of letters, updates and pictures will be completely up to you. Thank you again for considering our family as you go through your adoption journey. We pray only the best for you and your baby. | In Christ, Bryan, Lisa, Faith, Nicholas & Daniel
