Adoption in Our Lives
Fun on the Fourth of July

Adoption has changed our lives in ways we could not have imagined. We have one son, Jacob, who is our pride and joy. He was adopted and joined our family at the end of 2013 when he was 3 days old. At the moment, Jacob is learning words and becoming more and more independent. His face lights up when he sees Ben, and he brings more joy and love into our home than we ever thought possible. We love every new adventure we experience with him whether it's a new place or a new book, every moment is a gift. His personality and sense of humor are starting to show in the things he says and does. He is an active toddler who loves to explore and learn new things. He loves to dance and play ring around the rosie, especially when we all fall down! As he grows, we look forward to taking him on vacations where he can see historic places, experience other cultures, and see new things.

When we first saw Jacob the love in our hearts was instantaneous, and we were overwhelmed with the sacrifice his birth mother had made for him. Not a day goes by that we don't thank the Lord for her and the life she chose for our son. Adoption is truly a blessing to us in giving us children that we were not able to have on our own, and it's given us a new perspective on the miracle of life. Every day with our son is a gift, and we want to make memories and cherish each moment we have with him. We are eager to have another child join our family and we cannot wait to see where this adoption journey takes us!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Driving with Daddy

Nicki About Ben: Ben is a patient man who was raised in a strong Christian home. He is an honest man full of integrity with a great sense of humor and willingness to try anything. Ben has technical skills to fix computers and cars and is handy around the house. He pays close attention not to take short cuts, but to fix things the correct way the first time. When Jacob joined our family, I knew Ben would be an amazing father, but he has far exceeded my expectations. Ben is an incredible father full of dreams and hopes for our family. He is active in all daily activities that come with having children. I am blessed beyond measure to raise a family with him.

Ben About Nicki: Nicki is a very smart and talented woman. She is the perfect match for me, and I am fortunate to be married to her. Nicki is extremely kind hearted, and she can see a person's needs and meet that need quickly and compassionately. Nicki is also very accomplished in her career, and she has received several promotions at work because she works very hard and does such a good job. I am very proud of her for these accomplishments. Nicki also takes great care of our family and home. During the past two years, since Jacob has been in our family, I have been able to see a whole new side of Nicki as a mother. She is so patient, kind and loving with Jacob. She sings to him, reads books with him, and spends time snuggling with him as only a mother can do. Nicki is both an amazing wife and an incredible mother.
