Our faith led us here. In the very beginning of our relationship, we discussed the idea of adoption. For Shawnee, it was something she had wanted since she was younger, and Juan was 100% on board. As we continued to grow in our relationship and eventually our marriage we always kept the same hopes surrounding adoption. We knew that even if we had biological children, we also wanted to adopt.
We’ve worked towards building a great future for this child; we worked hard to create great careers and purchased a home we felt was a good place to raise a child. Once we got settled into our careers and married life, we began to discuss building our family more and more and started researching adoption. Shortly after, we became pregnant with our first baby and unfortunately miscarried within the first few months. We believe that God continues to call us toward adoption even after that experience. We are overly joyed at the possibility of you choosing us to love this baby.
