Adoption-selflessness-courage

“Adoption is complete selflessness.”

Before we get into our introductions, we’d first like to thank you for considering adoption – we admire you for your selflessness, and this act of courage and love.  It’s our prayer and desire that you are experiencing the presence and nearness of God as you walk this journey.

We are Dan and Erin.  Marriage came after being friends for a couple of years, as our friendship grew into love.  We got married in beautiful Colorado in the summer of 2007.  Before we were even married, we shared our common desire to adopt.  After trying to conceive for a couple years, we chose to pursue Adoption.  Well, God had a different plan!!  Literally the day we were turning in our Adoption application, we found out we were expecting!  Life sure is full of the “unexpected!”  Our son, Evan, was born in June of 2011 and a year and a half later, in February of 2013, Audrey was born.  Although God fulfilled our desire to be parents, we still have a deep longing in our hearts to grow our family through Adoption.

Dan is an email developer for an amazing ministry called Compassion International.  He also owns his own web developing business and is in the Air Force Reserves.  He provides so well for our family. Erin is fulfilling her life-long dream as a stay-at-home-mom.   As a couple, we enjoy traveling, trying new restaurants, cooking together, playing games, dreaming about life, serving others and snuggling on the couch.  As a family, some our favorite activities are eating dinner together every night, playing at the park, going on vacation or to visit family, wrestling on the living room floor and spontaneous dance parties.

Our desire is to honor you on this journey.  Although we don’t know you yet, we value you and God has placed a true love in our hearts for you. You are in our prayers daily, we wonder about you and most of all pray God is filling you with His hope.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about our family.  We are beyond thrilled to welcome a new brother/sister into our family!  He/she will be loved, adored and cherished to the max by all four of us!!

 

Love and Blessings,

~Dan and Erin
