Karen & Michael

We are Michael and Karen. We have two teenage children named Joslyn (15) and Caden (13). We love to spend time together at the beach and on the water with our boat. In the winter you will find us entertaining in our home with friends and family on game nights and hanging around the fire pit. We also love to travel and see different parts of the country and world. Our family is very active in our church and community. We lead a connect group in our home with other church friends. We hold strong to our faith in God and walk daily in His love, mercy, grace and forgiveness. It is our prayer that all who enter our home will feel the presence of God. We are all excited to have a new little one in our family to share all of this with. Joslyn and Caden cannot wait to have a little brother or sister.
 

We are excited to welcome into our family a boy, girl, or twins (of any gender combination), 3 months of age or under; through open, semi-open, or closed adoption.

 
 
 

DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER


We are Michael and Karen. Thank you so much for taking a look and getting to know our family! We know that God has great plans for us all. We desire God’s will through this journey and we believe that He has every detail worked out…from start to finish.

Michael had two children from his first marriage, Joslyn and Caden. Karen was previously married but has no children. We have been married for 5 years and have struggled with infertility for the last 4 years. We have prayed so many prayers for a child of our very own. The more we prayed and searched for God’s will for our family, the more God spoke to our hearts about adoption. He has made it very clear that He has a child out there just for us. We are so excited to meet this precious miracle!!!

Thanks again for looking at our family’s page. We have been praying for months for you and your baby! We are in awe of your courage and strength and are so grateful that you have made one of the most difficult and selfless decisions ever. Thank you so much for choosing life for your baby. We promise you that everyday we will raise your child in a loving Christian home. Your child will know about you and how strong and courageous your were. The child will always have a loving home and community full of people that will love them and help them each and every day to be the best that they can be. We are forever grateful to you and your choice of choosing LIFE!

What Karen says about Michael
Michael is no doubt a complete gift from God to us all. He owns his own construction company and is the hardest worker I know. He is an excellent provider and leader for our family. Michael loves the Lord with all his heart. I have been with Michael through many of life’s storms and I could not imagine doing it with anyone else. He always rises back to the top. He is a natural leader.  He never knows a stranger and is a complete delight to be around. Michael has such a way with kids at our church.  His nickname at church is the baby whisperer.  Michael has been known to be taken out of his classroom at church to go to another classroom to console a crying baby that is having a hard time. He has a true gift. Michael is a phenomenal father! He has always been there for Joslyn and Caden. I can’t remember a time where he has missed an event ever for the kids. Michael is my very best friend and I cant wait to walk along side of him caring for our very own child.
