Hi and thank you for taking the time to view our profile! We are excited to give you a bit of a glimpse into our lives. We really appreciate that you love your child so much that you're willing to try to find an adequate home where he or she can have and be what you would desire for them. Just what all you're going through, we don't know, but it must be hard, and that's what brought you here. We just want you to know that we care and that's why we're hoping to adopt. We care about your baby and we care about you. We want you to know that your baby will be well cared for. We both love children and even before we were married we talked about adopting. We can't wait to hold your baby in our arms and give them the love they deserve.
Why do we want to adopt? Reason number one is that Jesus wants us to do good and to pour out ourselves for the benefit of others. Therefore we feel that sharing our home with your child could be part of us fulfilling that purpose. Reason number two is that it runs in the family. Joshua's grandparents adopted and it was a very good experience. His adopted aunt is by far a favorite! One of his close cousins also adopted three children, and watching these adoptions happening around us has inspired us to do likewise. We also both love children and have a passion for spending quality time with them and encouraging them in the things they enjoy doing!
We met in the summer of 2014 at Ruth’s church. Joshua was there visiting for a weekend and soon after we realized that we were meant for each other. We married in February of 2016 and welcomed our daughter, Jovana, at the end of 2018. On July 29 of 2019 we welcomed our son, Elliot. He is one healthy bundle of joy! It's a bit of an adjustment having a newborn in the home, but we are so thankful he is here. Now they just need another little playmate to grow up with. We would all welcome your baby with outstretched arms! It would be so special for our children to have a little brother or sister to grow up with. We would love the privilege of bringing them up together. Jovana takes her role as big sister pretty seriously, and wants to hold Elliot all the time. She also asked let her change a diaper once. She required some assistance, but she's watched us change diapers many times and she has a pretty good concept of how to do it. Having our own children would not take away from the joy and excitement of welcoming your little one into our home. It would only add to it. We can't wait to meet you and your baby!
Some of the things we enjoy doing are fishing, riding ATV’s, going to the park or lake, swinging, singing, travelling and so much more. Because we live in the country, we have so much freedom to do all kinds of activities without bothering the neighbors. We have a huge play area, plus a huge backyard.
Our desire is to equip your child with the necessary resources to live a productive life. We want to encourage him or her in their dreams help them to achieve success. Whatever is in our power to help him or her to achieve their dreams we will do. Our desire is that they would become respectful citizens and that they would love God with all their heart. We want your child to be someone you can be proud of!
We certainly wish you the best in life for you and your baby, regardless of whether you choose us or not. Thank you for choosing life. And thank you for taking the time to find an appropriate home for your baby. Thank you for being brave and taking on this responsibility of finding the best home for your child. We're sure he/she will thank you later.
Joshua & Ruth, Jovana & Elliot
