Thank you for taking the time to look through our family profile. We are Jonathan, Brittany and Ava. Even if it is simply through this profile, it is nice to meet you! We are praying with you and for you as you make plans for the future. We know God will guide your steps and watch over you and your precious child. We had been trying to conceive for over a year when God turned our hearts toward adoption. In 2016, we brought home our daughter, Ava. She is the greatest blessing of our lives, and we feel humbled to have been chosen to be her parents by her beautiful birth mom. Over the last year, we decided to pursue adoption again! We are excited to see how God directs our plans as well! Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers!

More About Our Family

As a family we love to have fun together. Our desire as parents is that our children will grow up to be well-rounded individuals who have a passion for making the world a better place through the love of Jesus. We desire that our children always know how loved they are by us and by their birth family. As a transracial family, we also are constantly learning and incorporating our daughters (and future children's) culture into our family. We are thankful there are so many resources today for adoptive and transracial families. Being Ava's parents has been our greatest joy! She cannot wait to be a big sister, and we can't wait to see how our family will grow!
