We are James and Kelly, and we would like to thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better. Although our circumstances are different, I think we can both relate to being on an unexpected journey. We pray the Lord guides you through this unexpected journey and you feel His peace. We imagine this is one of the most challenging seasons of your life as you are faced with many emotions and decisions while your child is growing inside you. We believe birth mothers are so brave and we are humbled by their love and compassion.

We met in college and were married two and a half years later in the fall of 2007. We started trying for a child a year after we were married but we were unsuccessful after many years. We have been on the journey of infertility for over 5 years now and we have both had surgeries, underwent many infertility treatments, and have had one adoption loss. As we grieved our many losses the Lord started to do a work in our hearts and we have decided to stop infertility treatments and pursue adoption. We are very excited about this new road we are on to build our family!

We live in beautiful Lancaster County in a town home development with many young families. We are very active in our local church and have a strong community there. James is an electric guitarist on the worship team and Kelly currently leads a small group for women at our church. For work, James is a Sales Engineer that only requires local travel, and Kelly has recently taken a break from Home Health nursing to focus on the adoption process. We are very close with our family and have 10 nephews (4 adopted), and 6 nieces who we enjoy being Uncle and Aunt to!

One of the hobbies that we share is snowboarding. We enjoy boarding the Mountains in Vermont and have gone out West a few times. We also enjoy being active and going on adventures together. We look forward to taking our children with us on adventures someday. We also enjoy movies, laughing with each other, playing board games and spending time with our family and friends.

Thank you again for taking the time to view our profile. May the Lord comfort you and give you peace during this time.
