Our adoption journey started long ago…
Thank you for taking the time to read our story; we would love for you to follow along, support, and join in on this God-made journey that we are on! Although our families have known each other our entire lives, we first met in high school and instantly became really good friends. Our friendship eventually led us to realize that our feelings for each other were more than just friends.
When Tonya was 15, she went on a mission trip to Bolivia, where she worked in the community with children and provided Vacation Bible School for these kids. Through lots of prayer and Bible study on this trip, Tonya felt that God was telling her she would one day expand her family through adoption. Although we were young, we knew early on that we were serious about this relationship, and like most couples, talked about the future and what we envisioned for our lives. We discussed what God had laid on Tonya’s heart, and we both have prayed for this day for a long time! We cannot wait to love on and provide for this child that will become a part of our forever family.
When we became parents through adoption to Griffin in 2017, we immediately fell in love with him, and knew that it would not be long before we would begin the adoption for his sibling(s). We cannot wait to love on another child and to continue to expand our family that God has had planned out since the very beginning!
