Our faith in Jesus Christ is the value that has molded both our lives. We both grew up in Christian homes, going to church and Christian schools. As we went on to college and beyond, we made the faith of our childhood our own. Having Christ at the center of our marriage is key and will also be the center of our parenting. Our faith is what carried us through the difficult times of infertility and what is guiding us through the adoption process as well.
One verse we have come to treasure is from Proverbs 3:5-6:
“Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”

We live in a modest house, with three bedrooms, in a suburb of Chicago. We love that the city is so close, with so much to learn and do, but we like living in the suburbs where family life is all around us. We have a fenced in yard that is great for the dogs and will be perfect for kids.
We both come from families with four children. Jason is the youngest and Marcie the second child. Our families are super excited to add another member, or members to the family, and will be there to support and help us with our new addition.
Jason's parents live about four blocks away and Marcie's parents in Michigan. Our siblings live in Michigan and Indiana. We know our future holds lots of long weekends visiting our families as they love our children.
