Josh and Courtney

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us! We met during college and got married the summer before our senior years. We have been married for eleven years, and we have been so ready for our family to grow. We both love history, and we love to travel. We make sure to try new coffee shops and restaurants everywhere we go! Our dog, Bandit, accompanies us on many of our travel adventures. Josh loves to grill and Courtney loves to bake. We are constantly trying new recipes. We both work in youth-oriented fields: Josh is the youth minister at our church, and Courtney is a high school history and government teacher. We have struggled with infertility for the past few years, but we are very grateful for the process of adoption. Both of our families have ties to adoption: Courtney’s dad and two cousins were adopted, and Josh has three cousins who were adopted, too. We have felt God’s hand at every step of this journey, and we are excited to continue this journey with you. Family is so important to us, and we can’t wait to love and cherish this new addition.
