Our family photos and timeline:
Chance and I were married on June 3, 2006.
During the winter, spring, and then summer of 2010, we lost three unborn babies to miscarriage.
On March 22, 2011, I was able to hear the heartbeat of an unborn baby that we hoped to adopt domestically.
He was born on April 19, 2011. His biological mother made the decision to parent him.
On August 2, 2011, we met Nasko in his orphanage for the first time.
Then, on August 8, 2011, we had to leave him in that orphanage until the adoption process was finalized.
We were reunited as a family on March 2, 2012, when we picked Nasko up from the airport and made him officially ours.

On November 19, 2012, we announced that we were twelve weeks pregnant.

In March of 2014, we announced that we were adopting again. This time we were matched with a special needs, Latvian boy named Eduards.
In October of 2014, we had photos taken of our family of five.
We are so thankful for the ways in which God has grown our family. Things are not always easy or good, but we’re committed to living according to the gospel and loving those around us. We’re focused on living intentionally today with our boys, but I’d be lying if I said we weren’t always wondering what our next chapter in life might look like!
