Adoption Statement: Hello! We are Stephanie and Josh. We want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We know that this is a special time in your life. We think it is awesome that you are considering adoption. We know that this can be a tough decision and therefore we have a lot of respect for you. We are in awe of your strength and love for your baby. It takes a strong, unselfish person to put the needs of another before themselves, and that is what you are doing. If you choose adoption we pray that you will feel at peace with your decision. We are here to support you through this process.
We have been married for seven years and have been together for twelve. We have a strong relationship due to honesty, good communication, and our faith in God. Family means everything to us. We have a great relationship with our daughter, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, along with our Aunts, Uncles, cousins, Grandparents, and all of our friends. We are surrounded by love and support.
We live in the country and we LOVE it! We enjoy being outdoors, whether we’re working in the yard, playing basketball, corn hole, swimming, taking walks at the park, fishing at our family pond, enjoying cook outs, or just sitting on the front porch swing together.
Adoption is very special to us. There has never been a doubt that we wanted children. When we found out we could not conceive a child, we knew that adoption was the right path for us. About four years ago we adopted our daughter, Kenzley, when she was a newborn. Kenzley is a fun, caring, energetic, friendly girl. She has been such a blessing to our lives. We are beyond excited to become parents again, and to give Kenzley a little sister or brother. Another child will bring so much joy to our lives, and to our family and friends’ lives as well. We look forward to providing another child with a good education, in a loving, nurturing, Christian home. We can’t wait to complete our family.
Thank you again for viewing our profile. We pray you are inspired by our story. We hope you can tell by our pictures how much fun we have and how much love we can give. ~ Stephanie and Josh
