A Letter from Brad & Katie
We are honored that you have chosen to learn more about us. Welcoming your child into our home would be our greatest joy.
While we are unable to have biological children, we have both wanted to be parents since childhood. We believe that children are a gift from God and we are thrilled that we have another opportunity to adopt! Our daughter will be a wonderful big sister, and is just as excited as us!
We will work together to create a warm and loving environment where your child knows how much they are loved by us, by you, and by God.
We look forward to learning about you, your journey, and the hopes and dreams you have for your child!
We met over 6 years ago in college. Brad was smitten with Katie, and introduced himself by telling a goofy joke. It wasn’t until a few months later that we really connected through a mission trip to help children in Mexico. We built a foundation of friendship and serving the Lord together. Now, we have a strong marriage and family because of our constant reliance on God.
In 2016, our daughter, Charli, joined our family through adoption and she had been a true joy in our lives. We love to ride bikes together, go outside to explore nature as a family, and enjoy movie nights with homemade popcorn and goodies! We are excited to include our next child in our adventures.
Brad is an incredible husband, father, brother, son, uncle, and friend. He has a unique gift to spread joy and make friends wherever he is. I love that Brad has such a magnetic personality and it makes him a great father.
As a deacon at our church, Brad is well-respected by others, especially our youth. He is an excellent guitar player and drummer and is on our church’s worship band. Brad also loves to ride dirt-bikes, play golf, and read to our daughter.
My husband is the hardest-working person I know. Even after a hard day’s work, Brad comes home and devotes himself to spending quality time with family. I know he is thrilled to be able to pass on these qualities to his children as well as share with them the joy of music.
Katie is naturally beautiful inside and out and was born to be a mother. Her love for Christ is so evident, which often encourages others in their own faith.
Katie is a great baker and even sells some of her famous macrons throughout our community. Katie also loves to stay active by working in our garden, helping others whenever possible, and singing and dancing any chance she gets!
My wife is the most genuine person I know. She will teach our children the importance of being honest and kind to everyone they come into contact with. No matter what our family is doing together, she always has a smile on her face. Her love is contagious!
We live in a one-story, three-bedroom home with lots of space! Our front porch has a great view of the colorful desert sunsets that simply take your breath away. We also have a fenced-in pool, lots of trees, and a big backyard to play in. Our dog, Rio, is a sweet black lab that loves to run, play and make friends.
We love our nightly family dinners around the table, where we can pray together, eat food, and share about our days.
Our daughter, Charli, is 2 years old and is an active toddler who loves to explore nature, learn, read books with us, and be chased! We know that she will be a great big sister because of her affectionate personality!
We both come from large families with lots of aunts, uncles, cousins, and children. Our family enjoys spending time together for potlucks, game nights, or pool parties! Every summer we take a trip to Oregon to see more relatives.
Both of us were fortunate enough to grow up in Christian families that loved the Lord. Katie’s parents would read a bible story and pray with their kids every night before bed – a tradition we plan to continue with our children.
We promise that your child will be raised in a compassionate, well-rounded family that values a good education, a positive attitude and enjoying each day of life. We look forward to helping them achieve their goals with hard work, dedication and a loving family!
Your child will never doubt how much they are loved by us, by you, and by God. We are open to sharing letters, emails, pictures, and visits if you wish.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love being outdoors! We love to go hiking, golfing, and floating down the river. When at home, we love to work in the garden, host pool parties, game nights, or just run around in the backyard!
Both of us were fortunate enough to grow up in Christian homes. Putting our faith in Jesus Christ from a young age was one of the biggest blessings in both of our lives. We believe that Jesus Christ is God's son, who came to earth in order to die for us and rise again three days later. Because of this sacrifice, we are forgiven of our sins and can spend eternity with God in heaven.
|Our Musical Interest|
From a young age, we both have had a passion for music. Brad plays the saxophone, guitar, and drums. Katie love to sing and play guitar as well. On Wednesday nights, we lead worship for our church's youth group. One of our greatest joys is to play music for His glory.
