Joel and Hailee



We are a fun-loving couple who have been married for just over 5 years. Growing our family has not been an easy road for us and after three years of infertility, we have two babies in heaven. While we had a season to grieve that loss, we see how God has been gently growing our hearts for adoption all along and we are excited to step into this new chapter of our lives! We believe adoption can be such a powerful story. Your selfless act and our commitment to love this child unconditionally will paint a beautiful picture that we will all treasure forever.

We are both teachers! Joel teaches Bible and coaches cross country and track & field at the high school level and Hailee teaches 4th and 5th grade English as a Second Language. We are best friends and truly love being together and trying new things! Hailee enjoys taking pictures of beautiful scenery, while Joel loves hiking through all the beautiful scenery. We love to travel and see new things, although Joel has yet to take Hailee back to Indonesia where she spent her childhood :-o. We are always listening to music, and Joel occasionally tries to play music on his guitar (but he'll tell you he's not very good at it). Being with family is really important to us and we see our brothers and parents a lot and stay very close with all of them. Our two dogs, Jimmy & Lexie, are so sweet and fortunately for us they've both agreed to live forever ;-). We are very involved in our church and have made many close friendships there. Our children will grow up with many, many godly examples and people that love them and want to invest into their lives.
