BC: Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17

FC: Mary & Robert

1: For I Know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for peace and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. Jeremiah 29:11-12

2: Dear Expecting Parents, I’m sure as you are reading these words you are facing some big decisions in your lives. Let us start this letter to you by affirming that an adoption plan honors God's plan for families and would be something that can positively impact you. We have been seeking God's plan for our family since we were married six years ago (January 2006) and believe that adoption is what God wants us to pursue. God's plan is important to us because we believe that faith and obedience go together. Jesus Christ is our Savior and we follow Him as He guides us to discover the life He has crafted for us to live. | Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We look forward to continuing this process and becoming parents. We have tried very hard to capture the important details of our lives in this profile and hope it is helpful to you. Since beginning this adoption process we've been praying for expectant parents, and we also pray for the birth parents who will select us to adopt their baby, even though we don't yet know their names. We look forward to raising children. Our desire is for them to grow up trusting in the Lord. We commit to teach them to love God with all their heart, mind, and soul.

3: We live in a small rural community that is friendly and loving. We love the life that God has graciously allowed us to build in this small town. Also, we have a wonderful church family where Robert has the privilege of serving as Pastor. Our church family is truly a blessing to us. Our story begins before we were married. Mary had an experience with a friend which impressed the desire to adopt when she was a teenager. Working later with girls at the Georgia Baptist Children's Home increased that desire. Robert thought little about adoption but was never opposed to it. When we were married Mary shared her desire and Robert responded positively. Adoption became much more important to Robert when God began to challenge him and Mary to live out the gospel in a more meaningful way. We exist as a family to glorify God in all we do, to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, and share the good news with other families. | and Prayers, | Mary and Robert

4: We are so blessed to have each other. The Lord certainly brought us together. When we were dating and even now we just love spending our time together. We enjoy going to the movies, fishing and cooking dinner together. | Each year on or around our anniversary we like to travel and spend the weekend together. We have been to Wilmington NC, Washington DC and Myrtle Beach. For our 5th year anniversary Robert took Mary to the same point we had a picnic at on our honeymoon and this time we spent time reading God's word and praying together. | R | M

6: Robert is a fun loving man who likes to fish, play games and read. He serves as pastor of a little country church. He feels blessed to serve God in leading others to grow in their relationship with Christ. Robert is a great man who does not waiver in his faith. He stays firm in what the Bible says. That is why I love him so much. He truly desires to see others grow in their relationship with Christ. He enjoys missions. He has traveled oversees to share about the love of Christ but also he has severed our local community. I feel he is going to be a great father because of his desire to serve Christ shows in everything he does. | Robert

8: There are many girls in the world, but only one Mary. She takes care of people because she loves them and wants to see God glorified. | Mary is a leader of other women in Bible studies and women's discussion groups. She believes that life is truly worth living because every moment is a gift from God. She works hard to build a happy and faithful home. | Mary
