Scott and Jenny
Our names are Scott and Jenny, and we’re humbled that you’re taking the time to learn more about us. We admire your courage, strength, and love in making an adoption plan.
We met 10 years ago, and will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in October 2015. We wanted to start our family after our first year of marriage, and had planned to have both biological and adopted children. Due to health issues, Jenny will never be able to carry children. Even though that part of our dreams will never happen, we can still keep our dreams of adopting. We adopted our twins Emma and William as newborns in 2012. Though our hearts are full, and Emma and Will have brought so much joy to our lives, we have more love to give and room for more children. We would love to have another child – or even another set of multiples! We also have two dogs, Mackenzie and Brewster, who love children and will be so happy to have more children in our home!
We each have large families, and there are several adoptees in each one (combined, our families have 24 adoptees, with skin color ranging from very light to very dark). Each of our families is so excited to be welcoming another child or children! Our children will grow up knowing about their adoptions, and the love of their birth mothers. They will also know that we love them unconditionally, and their Heavenly Father loves them even more. We pray that they will desire to become Christ-followers at a young age, and we plan to continue our habit of family devotions and prayer as the children grow. Our example as adoptive parents will show them what it is like to be adopted into God’s family.
We are members of a Bible church with a great worship service, sound doctrine, a strong focus on the family, and they encourage community outreach. We have several friends there with young children and several friends there that have built their families through adoption.
We have an open adoption with Emma’s and Will’s birth mother. We personally believe open adoptions are best, but we understand that you may have other preferences, and we will work with you to develop a plan that is comfortable for you. We (as well as our families) have been praying for the birthmother and child (or children!) God has for us. We know you have so many decisions to make, and we applaud you for choosing to give life. We pray that God will give you wisdom and peace in your decisions. You have our heartfelt thanks for considering us.
