John & Emily

Thank you for taking a look into our lives and getting to know us. As we go through this adoption journey we are praying that God will give strength and peace to both you and us.

 For over 3 years now we have been dealing with infertility, but we are excited to start a family. Adoption has always been a huge part of our lives! Emily was adopted as an infant from Family Life Services and the Liberty Godparent Home. It is a blessing that we can adopt from the same agency she was adopted from. We feel like God has lead us to adopt and we are excited about it!

 We want you to know that we will be thinking and praying for you through this entire journey as you choose the best decision for your child’s future. We can only imagine how hard this time may be for you but pray that God will give you calmness and peace as you travel through this journey.

 Why We Want To Adopt:  John & Emily have decided to adopt because they have been trying to become pregnant for 3 ½ years now. They also tried fertility treatments for a year and were unsuccessful.

For John & Emily, adoption seems perfect for them and they are excited to see what the Lord has planned for them.
