Meet Bryan & Elisabeth
We want to introduce ourselves to you: we are Bryan and Elisabeth. Thank you so much for bravely considering adoption and taking the time to read more about us. We recognize that we cannot fully know or understand the emotions and decisions that you are facing.
God’s grace and faithfulness have carried us through some tough times. He is sovereign in all things and we give Him the glory, even in our struggles. We both love children and began pursuing adoption when we learned that our likelihood of having biological children is low. We will love any child that comes into our family fully, whether adopted or biological.
A little about us: we met in 2018 when a mutual friend from church set us up on a blind date and we have now been married since September 2019. Bryan is a clinical pharmacist and Elisabeth is a librarian. I (Elisabeth) plan to stay home with any children we have until they are in school. We both love to play board games, read, hike, watch sports, and travel. Elisabeth has fond memories of family road trips as a child and we hope to share that experience with our child.
We enjoy spending time with our families and they are eager to shower love on our child(ren). One of Elisabeth’s sisters and her husband and adopted baby live 20 minutes away. Elisabeth’s mother lives two hours away but is a devoted “Grammy” and makes the drive frequently. Bryan’s family is spread out across the country, but Bryan’s brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first child, so we are excited for our child to have cousins close in age on both sides of the family. We are also very involved in our church – serving in the nursery and helping to lead a community group. Our church family has walked with us on every step of our journey.
We long to be parents and to raise a child to know and love the Lord. Please always know we will unconditionally love and cherish your child and we will honor and respect the level of openness that you wish to have with your child. We are praying for wisdom and peace for you as you make difficult decisions.
Bryan and Elisabeth
