Since I, Paige, was young all I've wanted to be is a stay at home mom. My husband, Josiah, has wanted to get married and start a family since he was young as well. When he bought his first car after getting a job following college, he chose one that would be a good family car. He also planned on going into engineering because he knew it paid well enough to allow him to support a large family. We got married in October in 2015 and wanted to start our family and have kids right away, but that wasn't God's plan. We've
tried many different things for fertility because we would love to have one naturally, but nothing has worked and all signs point to us remaining infertile. After much talk and prayer, we decided that we want to move forward with an adoption. I am already familiar with adoption since my parents did foster care for a while before they adopted my little brother which is why I have always considered adopting.
We both grew up in loving, good sized Christian families. I have a total of 8 siblings, one older and seven younger. I've always loved playing with and helping my younger siblings, I still have them come stay with me sometimes even though they live 7 hours away. My husband has 3 younger sisters, so he knows how to be gentle but firm. My younger siblings also love to play and learn from him. We both desire to have a child to love, teach, and play with. Both sides of our family and church family are also praying for us to have kids so they can love and teach them also.
When we bought our house we wanted one that would be best for a family. We own a spacious house on four acres in the country on the edge of a quaint little town. We have a dog for a child to eventually play with, and our kind neighbors have horses we can watch run in the fields next door. We live about 20 minutes away from my husbands family who can't wait to have
great-grandchild, grandchild, and niece/nephew to play with and help take care of.
We plan to raise our children in the nurture and knowledge of Jesus Christ, the king of the world. Both of us are strong in our faith and hope to pass the love of Christ and His church on to our children. We will raise our kids to be respectful, loving, lovers of learning, and to live their lives for others.
We completed a home study through Lutheran Child and Family Services, a licensed adoption agency who are helping us on our path towards adding a child to our family.
