Johnny & Marla
We believe adoption is a gift, and one that we treasure dear to our hearts. We as a couple are very thankful you are taking the time to read our profile. It would mean the world to us if you would choose us to be parents. We would be delighted and look forward to the journey. We know that this road is filled with tough decisions and applaud your strength. We are praying for you.
Our Leisure Time
We love spending time together. One of our favorite things to do is ride our motorcycle together. We like taking a joy ride down the country roads for miles, sometimes stopping for a game of mini golf, and ice cream is always a must on hot summer days!
We also love to go fishing on the many different lakes we live close by to. We like summer fishing and ice fishing in the winter.We also love watching the Green Bay Packers play football. Johnny always looks forward to football season. Watching football is always a must on Sunday afternoon! We have also attended a couple live games that we really enjoyed and can't wait to do it again! We really look forward to spending our favorite pastimes with a child.
Type of Education We Will Provide
Home is the first place of education, and parents are first teachers in everyone's life. In our childhood we get our first impression of education from our home. We become a well-educated person in life by the efforts of our parents and teachers. They are real well wishers of us who help us in leading our life towards success.
We both grew up Amish and, per Amish custom, went to school through the eighth grade. Even though we no longer live the Amish lifestyle, we are so thankful for the parents we have. They did an amazing job teaching us the importance in life and learning a good work ethic.For us, we still would want our children to have a higher education then we were able to have, such as high school and college (if they decide to go to college!) Education is a very important tool for everyone to succeed in life. It opens various doors to the opportunities of achieving better prospects in life. The importance of higher education has become increased in getting a good job and position. Proper education creates lots of ways to go ahead in the future. We are exited to help a child reach the dreams of their life.
Why We Chose Adoption
We have been married for over five years. Having a family has always been a dream for us, it just never became a reality. We have tried to become pregnant for over three and a half years. After consulting with doctors, we both feel God is calling us to adopt. We are so exited to open our home to a child and show them how much love we have for them. We can't wait to give them the life of their dreams.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small and very cozy three bedroom, two bathroom house. We have almost three acres. We have a pretty big backyard, so we can have friends and family over for cookouts, campfires,play cornhole, or volleyball.
We live in the country and absolutely love it! Its very quiet and peaceful. We don't have close neighbors, but have great neighbors. We have lots of wildlife crossing our field - we see lots of deer, turkey, and sometimes fox! It's beautiful and very woodsy by our house.
We live close to many small towns, which have parks for kids to play. We also have a fair close by we go to every night when its open which has lots of different grandstand events, such as rodeos, dirt bikes, mud run, and races, as well as lots of animals you can feed and pet, and also lots of kid rides. Our town also has lots of fireworks on the Fourth of July that we enjoy to go watch.
We attend an amazing church not far from our home. We have made great friends, and get together every other week for group discussions. The grown ups have great fellowship while the kids have play dates right there with us!
We truly love home and our community and we cannot wait to share it with a child. We think this is a wonderful place to raise a child and we look forward to making lots of memories here as a family!
Our Extended Families
We are very close to our families. Johnny has eight hilarious, fun, and outgoing siblings in his family - two brothers and six sisters. Marla has one sister, and one brother. Together we have ten nieces, and seven nephews, which we love and adore very much.
We get together with both families every month. The whole family meets and we eat lots of good food, play games, and share lots of laughter!
Christmastime is always an awesome and favorite time of year! We love celebrating Jesus by reading the Christmas story and opening lots of presents. We also play bingo, which gets loud and pretty intense - but a good time is had by all!
We also go all out for birthdays. We love to decorate and celebrate the birthday person with lots of gifts and their favorite food. We love coming together to celebrate the birthday boy or girl's special day!
Our families are overjoyed that we want to adopt. We can't wait to have a child join our fun and loving family!
From Us to You
Hi there, our names are Johnny and Marla. We feel honored that you have taken the time to consider us as parents. We admire you for your courage and strength in considering adoption for your baby's future. We know this decision you're considering is not taken lightly. We want you to know that we will give this special child all the love we have.
We have been preparing for this adoption journey and we are exited to welcome this child into our lives. We have been a couple for ten years, and married for five years. We met through mutual friends. We are like best friends and love spending time together. We do almost everything together and have a great and fun relationship. We are very humorous and sarcastic and are always joking around. We approach life as a team, fully committed to love each other, and it would be our privilege to share our joy with this wonderful child.
Family is really important to us, and we both love spending time with our loved ones. We love going camping. We do lots of boating, water skiing,tubing, jet skiing, fishing, and going for walks through the campground. We like making our meals over the open fire, then for a sweet treat, making s'mores. Please know that your child will be welcomed to a stable family. Our families are exited to welcome another little one.
Marla loves to bake lots of goodies, such as cookies, pies, muffins, and cakes. She also loves to play basketball. Basketball is her favorite sport. Johnny likes working on cars, fixing them, doing oil changes, etc. In the fall he is busy with raking lots of leaves. He also loves helping out other people with projects like construction.
We want you to know you are an incredibly courageous person who shows selflessness, and humility in your actions. May God bless you all the days of your life. Please know this baby will be loved beyond measure. We will raise and protect this child to the best of our ability, and provide a wonderful support system, and base of faith.
We plan to tell your child that they are extremely special because they were chosen twice. First you chose to give them life. Second you chose the couple you thought would be the best parents to him/her, to love him/her unconditionally. We will always be open and honest with this child about the adoption. We believe the child should know what a blessing adoption is. They will know the love you have for him/her.
As life goes on we would be delighted to share pictures and letters with you of the fun happy life him/her has. Please know that you and the baby are in our prayers daily. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us and our life together.Sincerely,
Johnny & Marla
