DEAR BIRTH PARENT,
Even in conversations 9 years ago as a pre-engaged couple, we each expressed to each other a deep desire to have a family grown through adoption. Over the past 6 years we’ve been blessed and challenged with our 3 lively and thriving biological children, yet our yearning to adopt has remained. We eagerly await the rich opportunity of change it will bring to graft our adopted son or daughter’s unique heritage onto our own.
We welcomed our third child on June '17 after a miscarriage the prior summer and a difficult pregnancy beginning in the fall. Through grace and “hard knocks”, we’ve become experienced parents focused on richly blessing our kids, that they would, in turn, bless others. Likewise, we’re supported and blessed enthusiastically by our community of friends, many of whom have themselves experienced the joys and challenges of adoption.
We are a Colorado family. Below are photo collages that capture some of our main values: service and play, travel and adventure, and community. Enjoy learning a bit about our family. We look forward to getting to know you too.
Blake and Joanna, Benjamin, Jaron, and Silas
