How We Met: We were childhood sweethearts! We met when we were only eleven and nine years old. Our families became friends, and we grew up together in the same neighborhood. Falling in love seemed like the most natural thing in the world, and we got married young (eighteen and twenty!). Part of what makes our marriage strong is the solid foundation of our shared faith and our true friendship. Twelve years later we are still going strong!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other: Ben is unfailingly cheerful, funny, and incredibly diligent at whatever he works at. Even after a long day at work, he is always ready to play with the kids and help with the dishes or other housework. His personality is very “go-with-the-flow” and his gentleness, calm demeanor, and love for fun make him an amazing father. Elisabeth is gentle, thoughtful, caring and kind to others. She has always had a natural way with children and is a wonderful mother. She’s generous with her family and friends – always the first to sign up to bring a home-cooked meal to someone in need!

Our Hobbies and Interests: A typical week for us is filled with visits to the library and local parks, playdates with friends, and joining our nature group on outdoor adventures. We eat dinner together as a family every evening, like to spend time together taking walks around our neighborhood, playing games together (like Pictionary and Uno), and having “family movie nights.” We are a family of readers and love reading books together, out loud to one another and individually. In the fall, we love making s’mores around our backyard fire pit. We also enjoy going on hikes and family camping trips and spending as much time out in nature as possible!

Why We Want to Adopt: We have always known we wanted to have children, and even before we were married, we felt that adoption would be a part of our family’s story one day. After struggles with secondary infertility and complicated pregnancies, it has become even more clear that adoption is the way our family was meant to grow. We absolutely love being parents and our lives are so much more fun and full of purpose with children. Most importantly, we believe that adoption is a beautiful expression of the love of God.
