Approved Families

pete_beckyHi! We are Pete & Becky and we are grateful that you have taken time to get to know us. We have been married for over 6 years and we are eager to start our family through adoption. We have supportive friends and family who are also excited to welcome a child into the family. We understand that this must be a very difficult decision for you to make and we pray for God’s peace as you consider what will be best for you and your baby.

danrachelHi, we are Dan & Rachel! We are so excited to see how God is growing our family through adoption! Adoption is a big part of our lives, especially since we have several family members who are adopted. We also see infant adoption as a beautiful picture of believers who are adopted into God’s family. We want to share God’s love, joy, and comfort with a baby and raise them in a Christian home with two parents who love the Lord. We met in 2011 when Dan started attending Rachel’s young adult Bible study at church, and we became good friends as we spent a lot of time together and later helped to organize a missions trip to Mexico. We began dating in August and got engaged right before Christmas! We spent the next few months planning our wedding, buying a house, and went on a missions trip 3 weeks before our wedding. Dan got Rachel the perfect present for our 1st Christmas – a cute cockapoo puppy who we named Lucy! We love to go sightseeing, have friends over at our house, visit with family, go to the beach, & eat ice cream! We also enjoy serving the Lord together at church in our children’s program and young adult ministry.
