Dear Expectant Parents, Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. The decisions you are facing must be incredibly hard and we highly respect your love for your child in choosing to explore adoption. From the very beginning of our relationship the desire to adopt has always been in our hearts. Fast forward 6 years and we were married with 4 kiddos under the age of 5 and that desire was set aside. Now that our boys are older the Lord has strongly placed that desire back in our hearts again. We LOVE our children and know that there is plenty of room and love to add another member to our family. With our family of 4 boys we have both learned that there is no such thing as perfect parents or family. Parenting our children has made us hit our knees and pointed us to the cross. We have come to realize that the only strength we have, as parents, is through Jesus Christ. We mess up, fall down, and make mistakes. But by Gods grace He has allowed us to grow as a family. It may not always be picture perfect but God has been SOOOO good to us. As our family, with Gods help, we know we can celebrate the high times and hold on tight during the rough times. Your child will be loved on and cared for no matter what!

More About Our Family
We are blessed to be surrounded by beautiful WI countryside, so we love to get outdoors as a family and aren't afraid to get a little dirty! The boys love to fish, explore and play with many of cousins and friends that live close by. Always having a friend to play with is one of the best parts of having siblings. With homeschooling we can enjoy family everyday. We enjoy field trips, outings and crafts as part of our year round schooling. Ministry is also a huge part of who we are. We love our church and our church family. God has blessed our lives in so many ways we cant help but serve Him. We know we are not anywhere close to prefect but He loves us anyways and for that we are forever grateful.
More About Joel
Joel is my best friend and constant rock. He is always there for me and such an encouragement to our family. He is a wonderful man that loves the Lord and his family fiercely. Hard work, a passion for ministry and family make up a huge part of who he is. He has given up most of his spare time and hobbies to be with and love on his family. His daily sacrifices mean more to us than he will ever know. Joel is a country boy that grew up on a rural dairy farm in WI. Being raised on a farm gave him an appreciation and talent for working with his hands. Joel attended auto body school and now works at a small town autobody shop 5 min from our home. He enjoys getting to pass on what he knows about cars and farming to our boys.
