Why a blog site?

Our story could help others. We wanted to be able to share our story in hopes that we could help others. During our infertility journey and our adoption journeys, we’ve met so many wonderful families and have benefited from their stories of hope and love. If our story can help bring someone closer to their spouse or their Savior than we need to shout our story as loud as we can. “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have” (1 Peter 3:15). Learn more about our journey to parenthood in our first blog post, “Jars Like Us.”

To share our adoption progress. We needed a way to share the progress and details of our adoption journeys with friends and family. This site allows us to keep loved ones updated on where we are in our journey. This site gives us one location to direct people for information on our journey. We will strive to be as transparent as reasonably possible about our adoption process.

To document our journey for our children. We feel strongly about documenting this process for our children so that one day when they are old enough we can look back on all the beautiful ways God brought our lives together.

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” (2 Corinthians 4:7-18).
