Kimberly is a 2nd grade teacher and recently earned her Master’s degree in Educational Administration. Joe is a registered architect with a Master’s degree in Architecture. We live in a wonderful community with our sweet little miniature schnauzer Daisy. We both graduated from Texas Tech University and still love to try and go to a football game every season! Traveling and being with friends and family are our passions and we feel blessed to have many opportunities to enjoy these things. We are growing increasingly excited each day about building our family to share these things with as well.
We first met in 2007 on a Mission Trip through our church in college. We both had a crush on one another but lost contact after graduation. Fast forward to December 2012, Joe was in Graduate School when he decided to Facebook message Kimberly to see if she would like to meet up over Christmas Break. We met for dinner and an evening of looking at Christmas lights in town. We fell for each other quickly. Joe was in graduate school in Massachusetts so we traveled back and forth for 1 year. It was some of the most amazing months filled with 4-hour long phone conversations, traveling all over the Northeast and making so many incredible memories. After dating 11 months, we got engaged and then 7 months later we were married.
Family is extremely important to both of us and we are excited about passing on love to future generations! We both believe in our hearts that God has given us a desire to be parents. When we were told by a doctor that we had less than a 5% chance of having children biologically, we both felt led by God to adopt. Our hearts are open and ready to love and nurture a child, regardless of whether or not we gave birth to them. We feel incredibly blessed to have this calling!
