Joel and Kendra

We admire the love you have for your child. Regardless of what path you choose, we want to thank you for the courageous and sacrificial decisions you are making. We don’t know you yet, but we already love you and are praying for you. Even before we met, we both believed that adoption would be part of the story God had for us. With the support of our church, friends, and family, we promise to continue striving to be the best parents, partners, and people we can be. We promise to create a home that is full of love, laughter, and welcoming to all.
