We are exceedingly blessed by the love between us and from our families. Life and our hearts are full to overflowing. We would love to pour that love out on a little one.

In 2015 we were married after meeting in graduate school. After a year of marriage we were ready to start a family, but having children the usual way wasn't in the cards for us. Infertility was a disappointment, but not the end of the story. We are thrilled to be able to build our family through adoption.

Emily is passionate about people. She pours into friendships new and old. She loves to nurture the talents and dreams of others, whether children or adults. David is full of fun. He brings levity to any gathering. His playfulness makes him an instant hit with kids.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you as you consider making an adoption plan. We hope that this little introduction will help you decide if we would be the right couple to adopt your child.
