Jon & Mandy

Hello,

As we sit here writing this our hearts are filled with so much excitement and emotion that God has chosen both us and you to go on this journey together.  Infertility issues, along with our passion for children, is what led us to this journey.  God has directed all of us to this path for a reason.  He will lead us and guide us and never leave us.  God has chosen you to carry a precious child.  We know that it is a very difficult decision you are making.  Please know that we admire your decision, whether it be to parent or to make an adoption plan.  We pray for peace and comfort for you through this journey.  We want to give our future children everything that we had.  We want to raise them up in a loving and Godly home.  We first want to thank you for giving the gift of life.  We also want to thank you for taking a few minutes to see a small part of our lives.  We thank you for being a part of this journey with us.

Love,

Jon and Mandy

About Jon from Mandy:

God has truly blessed me with such a godly husband.  From the moment I met Jon, I trusted him with my heart.  He is very easy going and has a calm personality.  He loves family which is so important to me.  He adores all his nieces and nephews that we are so blessed to be around.  He is also a very hard worker as a corrections officer for the past 11 years.  He knows when to make me laugh (and that is often) if it is just by making a crazy face or saying something funny.  My favorite part about Jon is that he loves the Lord with all his heart.  

About Mandy from Jon:

What can I say about Mandy?  Mandy is a sweet and loving person.  She is a very caring person and a huge encourager.  She is always there for me and others.  Mandy has a huge heart and love for kids.  She has been working in the pediatric special needs field for almost 20 years.  She is a very determined wife and a very hard worker.  She keeps me on my toes (haha)!  Mandy has a passion for Christ and it shows in her singing on the praise team.  I am very blessed to have her in my life.
