Meet John & Kodi
Hello! We are John and Kodi. We are so thankful that you are taking the time to learn more about us. We love our story and cannot wait to share with you what God has done in our lives thus far.
We started out as coworkers at a local diner, but our love story did not start out like most. In fact, you probably cannot find two people who are more different from one another than we are. However, as our friendship continued, it quickly became apparent that we were intended to be much more than friends. In June of 2010, after almost a full year of planning, we began our forever adventure and got married. We are so thankful to have one another every day.
Throughout our marriage, we have dreamt of the day that we become a family. Looking back at our earliest conversations, we always knew we would grow our family through the gift of adoption. In 2015, we walked through our greatest trial. However, in the midst of the hardship, we knew adoption would become our life’s greatest blessing. Over the last 7 years, we have worked hard to build our life together. We have a house that we are proud to call our home. We have a cocker spaniel named Mister, who is unlike any other spaniel you have ever met. I (Kodi) am currently a full-time student, finishing with my bachelor’s degree in May. During the last year, I have also worked as a nanny for an adorable set of twins. Someday, I hope to use my degree teaching special education at the elementary level. John works as a manufacturing technician at a national laboratory. He is finishing his education and hopes to one day move into a management position.
We live a simple yet abundant life. With our love language being quality time, we love spending time together, hosting get-togethers with friends, fellowshipping with our church family, and most importantly; making memories with our families.
We are so blessed that God is continuing to write our story. Our child will never doubt that they are loved and cherished. They will be raised to love, laugh, and learn. They will be supported not only by us, but also by the people we are blessed to have in our lives. We cannot wait to share a story of commitment, love, strength, and courage with our child – a story that was created just for them. We are so excited to see how God continues to write our story. Know that we are praying for you, the expectant mother, and that we are ready to love you and your baby, as hopeful adoptive parents.
