Meet Ben & Emily

Hello!

We are Ben and Emily. We hope that through our profile, you will be able to see a little bit about who we are, the love we have for each other, and our silliness. Our desire is to have an honest and open with relationship with you, to trust this process, and let God direct us. We admire how strong you are and pray daily that you are surrounded by strength, wisdom, love and peace.

Ben works in IT for a health care company and Emily teaches second graders with learning differences. Ben often works from home, which will be great for mid-day bonding sessions that otherwise wouldn't be an option. We have planned for Emily to stay home for as long as possible, and have worked hard throughout the years to make this a priority. Our three dogs will also be welcoming the bundle of joy home. Sophie, our blind, deaf Pug, Bella, our deaf Springer Spaniel, and Sadie, our black Lab/Golden Retriever mix, definitely keep our life from being anything but boring.

We are so humbled that you have chosen to get to know us a little better. We've been married since 2008 and have always dreamed of a family. Though we struggled with infertility, adoption was never a "last choice" for us. It is something that we always knew would be a part of our journey, and while we are so excited to begin this next step, we realize that it comes with a lot of heartache as well. We promise to give a child an incredible life, filled with love, grace and growth. We want our child to understand his/her birth mother's great love and would love for you to be a part of our family, with the level of involvement you feel comfortable with. We realize these feelings may change over time, and that is ok. Our door will always be open.

Much love,

 

Ben and Emily
