Susan & Ryan
Hi! We are Ryan and Susan, and we're grateful you're reading our profile! We met at church ten years ago and married about a year and a half later. We have two sons, Will and John, who constantly keep us on our toes and add more joy and depth to our lives than we could have ever imagined.
I (Ryan) am the owner of an investment firm in the area and love helping people handle their finances wisely. I live life to the fullest, particularly embracing every moment I have with my family. I love doing lots of things with the kids, including riding the lawn mower, going golfing, working on outdoor projects, building train tracks, and cooking together.
Before kids, I (Susan) worked as an online editor at a large technology company. Now I have the even more challenging (and rewarding) job of being a stay-at-home mom. Raising my own family in the town where I grew up, I have lots of deep roots, including friendships lasting since childhood. I am happiest when I am with my family, regardless of the activity. I love to write, run, and lead and encourage other women.
We love the Lord deeply and want to adopt because of our faith in and gratitude to God. And we also just love being parents.
We welcome a boy, girl, or twins (of any gender combination), newborn to three months, through open, semi-open or closed adoption.
DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER
Dear sweet expectant mama,
It sounds simple, but it's the sentiment that resounds loudest in our hearts when we think about you.
We are so grateful for your selfless decision and for considering us to love and raise your baby.
We have and will continue to pray for you, specifically this (from Numbers 6): "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."
We are so sincere in this prayer.
Our faith in Jesus Christ is the single most important thing in our lives, and our belief in Him motivates our decision to adopt. Being here is our step of faith. We recognize that every person involved in an adoption has to take one, and we thank you for taking that step with us. You forever have our admiration and respect. We are humbled and excited to see what lies ahead.
With sincerest of hearts,
Ryan and Susan
