About Us/Me

 We are Josh and Emily. We met in college 11 years ago and have been together ever since. We were married in 2008 and moved to Ohio from Texas in 2011. From the beginning, adoption has always been on our hearts and we are excited to become parents! Josh currently works in the education department at a science museum but is looking forward to being a stay-at-home dad. He is fun loving, passionate and enjoys woodworking, birdwatching, gardening and sports.  Emily works in a clinical laboratory at a large university medical hospital.

 

About You

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are grateful that you are considering us as part of your adoption plan. We can not imagine what you are feeling right now as you navigate this path. We want you to know that we are praying for you and your baby and that we will always be open with your child about their beautiful adoption story. Our goal is to raise our children with unconditional love and support. We want them to have a passion for life and care for others. We will encourage them to pursue their interests. We want to share with them our values of learning and loving others with them.

He is fun loving, passionate and enjoys woodworking, birdwatching, gardening and sports.  Emily works in a clinical laboratory at a large university medical hospital. She is thoughtful, caring, detailed and loves to read, hike, bake and work on crafts.  We both enjoy traveling and experiencing new foods, places and cultures. We live in an urban, walkable neighborhood with lots of other kids on our street. It is full of shops, restaurants, parks and even a movie theater that we can walk to. Our dog, Calla, also enjoys the nearby parks and walkability of our neighborhood. We are very active in our church, which has become a great support system for us and includes many who are like family to us. Our church support system has been a huge blessing for us as most of our family still lives in Texas. Being with family, though we are far away, is still very important to us. We take trips to visit for holidays and special occasions and our families also like to come to Ohio to visit.
