Hello! We are so happy you are here to “meet” our family! Thank you for taking the time to get a glimpse into our lives and learn a bit about us. We cannot wait to get to know you better too, and to hopefully meet you in person soon!
We are Justin, Rachel and Fletcher! Our story began during our first year of college, we were both 19. We dated just over a year before getting engaged. They say, “When you know, you know.” That was true for us. While still attending college, we got married in 2014. During the first few years of marriage, we graduated from college, started our careers, moved out of our apartment and bought and sold a few houses. Then, along came a baby.
Our biological son, Fletcher, was born in 2018. Through the first 26 weeks, Rachel had an easy pregnancy. Unexpectedly, she was admitted to the hospital and diagnosed with preeclampsia at 27 weeks. Fletcher was born at 28 weeks and spent his first 77 days in the NICU. It has certainly been a challenging yet rewarding journey thus far. He is happy and healthy, praise God!
Adoption is something we’ve wanted to pursue since our relationship began. It has always been on our hearts. Over the past year and a half, we have been praying and asking how God wants us to grow our family next. We felt very strongly that He said the time to adopt is NOW! We are excited to be on this journey and to care for another sweet child.
