We met at work in 2003, when Aaron sat near the coffee pot that Jen would often frequent. Our similar interests and our strong faith in God gave us a connection that would soon lead us to become the very best of friends. We enjoyed a close friendship for several years, and in November of 2012 were engaged. We married in June of 2013. Our wedding day was a joy- filled celebration, shared with family and friends, and will always be one of our most favorite memories.
We knew early on that we wanted to start a family, and so began to pursue this shortly after we were married. Each month that passed was met with some level of disappointment and sadness, but also met with hope that someday...in God’s time...He would fulfill our longing for a child. After four years of infertility, the Lord began to peacefully place the idea of adoption within our hearts.
Though the journey has not always been easy, we continue to remind ourselves God is faithful. What we have found to be true in our lives is that it is often while walking through some of the more difficult times, that He is also gently leading toward an unexpected blessing.
We are excited to see the plans unfold that will lead us to one day become parents. We are very thankful for the blessing of adoption. It is special to us as we realize that we ourselves were also adopted through Christ.
