Meet Jason & Becky
Jason came from a large family, having 5 siblings. Becky’s friends always said she’d be the one to have the first and the most kids. When we got married, it felt like we were destined to have a large family. That was our dream.
God had other plans.
A couple of years into our marriage, we started trying to get pregnant. It wasn’t quite as easy as our friends had assumed it would be. In the first 18 months, we had two miscarriages – children we’ll have to wait until heaven to meet. We underwent some fertility tests, tried some treatments, and received a less than ideal diagnosis, unexplained infertility. We were heartbroken.
But God had other plans.
In February 2014, we took a Valentine’s stay-cation to the middle of nowhere in Alaska. We were out for a drive near our B&B when the conversation switched to adoption. It had been on both of our hearts; we had never really discussed it until then. But from there, we were all in.
Less than a year later, we were blessed with Mara. We were there at the hospital with her only a few minutes after her birth, but the love for her had already been in our hearts so many years before that. All the pain and sadness and frustrations built up over years of trying without success and the anguish of miscarriages and infertility vanished the moment we laid eyes on her.
In the years since, every day with Mara has been a blessing. Jason continues to serve as the sole pastor at his congregation and enjoys spending time with members and reaching out to others in our community. Becky adores being a stay-at-home mom to Mara as they spend their days painting, creating, imagining, and exploring the outdoors. In her spare time she enjoys sharing her love of music by teaching piano and also runs a successful clothing business out of the home. Life these days is such a blast!
But now, here we are, on the adoption journey again. It’s a wild and exciting journey, but this is the path we know we are meant to be on. The reason we’ve chosen adoption? Simply, it’s love. We have this fount of love that we’ve been eager to share with children of our own. Even with Mara, we still have more love to share. But, just as importantly, we have the love of Jesus that we’re eager to share with another child, to tell them how much Jesus loves them.
We look forward to getting to know the expectant mother who chooses us!
Love, Jason & Becky
