Meet the DADS
Mark & Ellie
Ellie has an amazing spirit of joy and her hugs stop the world from spinning. To me, she is a constant reminder of God’s genuine love.
Nick & Gavin
Gavin is a loving big brother and son. He brings a smile to our face with his singing and dancing, swimming, and wrestling with his little brother. We love him so much!
Eric & Devin
Devin has provided me the opportunity to appreciate what people can do versus not. I have gained patience and understanding and have learned how to communicate in a more clear manner. I value every minute I can spend with him and am very happy he is in my life.
Rollin & Chloe
Chloe makes every day a good day no matter what else has happened. Her love of life and making sure we are all doing good puts everything in perspective. You don’t end your day at our house without a hug from Chloe.
J.J. and Audrey
Audrey never ceases to amaze me or put a smile on my face. Being her Dad has changed my perspective on a lot of things in this life.
Jake and Genevieve
Gigi is the youngest, and without her our family would be incomplete. She is fun, stubborn, goofy, and the most loving girl, and I don’t remember life before her.
Jim and Fox
Fox is full of energy and will bring a smile to anyone. Fox has shed a new view on life that is amazing and I would not change it for the world.
Kris and Emma
Emma is all heart and the embodiment of unconditional love. Her smile is nothing short of radiant and can instantly brighten any day. She is our miracle child and can't imagine life without her.
Mike and Addison
Addison has taught me to enjoy the simple things in life and to be a better person everyday.
Tyson, Margaret, and Emerson
Margaret is the lovable princess. Emerson is sweet and snuggly. They have fun everyday with their three brothers. M and Em were diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at birth. We are blessed on God’s journey to appreciate the little things in life.
Jason and Brooklyn
If you told me 18 years ago as we enter her Sr. year of high school that we would be filling out college applications and making visits to universities I would have thought you were joking. So excited to see the next chapter in her life unfold...
Kris and Phoebe
Phoebe is kind, funny, loves dogs and babies. Many who meet her are quite taken by her and say how lucky she is to be here with us. Although that may be true, her Mother, Sister and I are truly the lucky ones having been given the opportunity to have her as our daughter!
Kurt and Max
Max amazes us everyday with his curiosity, humor and wit! He really does light up a room and makes fast friends where ever he goes! While we do have challenges from time to time, Max’s love for life makes everyday a good day!
Jason and Dez
When Dez was born we thought we would have to provide him with more than we were even capable of. However, we quickly learned that Dez would be the one that provided us with more than we could ever have imagined. He continues to be our never-ending gift from God.
Eric and Noah
Noah has an unmatched spirit of joy. We celebrate what others may consider to be small accomplishments. His excitement is contagious! Noah is truly a blessing to our family.
Mitchell and Connell
Connell is sunshine is human form. He’s our silly, smart, wild boy made of pure love and joy. He is the best part of every day and continues to amaze us with everything he does. He’s shown me he’s capable of anything and taught me to slow down and appreciate each moment and inch stone.
Josh and Jenessa
Jenessa is one of the most amazing people. She loves genuinely and wholeheartedly. To know Jenessa is to know LOVE and ACCEPTANCE!
Joel and Sam
For years Sam has been teaching us to not underestimate him. With a little help, he finds ways to succeed. Dad couldn’t be more grateful for God putting us on a path together, and for so many helpers that have been there for Sam.
John and Miles
Miles has taught me to slow down and enjoy the wins in life. We get so busy with our day to day stuff we miss out on memories. Watching Miles get excited about something he has done or achieved is the greatest joy of my life.
Rob and Luke
Luke is the 9th of 10 children and he is very much his own personality. He loves to give hugs and loves to dress up in any kind of clothing. He is an escape artist that has a smile that will melt your heart!! We love our Lukey Pooky!
