A Heartfelt Hello!

Thank you for taking time to learn a little about our family. We hope you enjoy and use our profile as a little snapshot into our everyday lives, personalities and fun moments! More than anything, our hope is that you will see the love we have for each other, our family and our future child.

Deep, loving roots to adoption bond our family in many ways, as Rebecca herself was adopted as an infant. We look forward to establishing an open and honest relationship through this life-changing process, in whatever unique and special way that may be.

We want you to know how much love and respect we feel for you already. We pray for you and your child daily, that you would have peace and comfort in choosing a family.

With love,

Dan & Rebecca
