A Letter from Ben & Victoria

Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for the opportunity to share our life with you. We are an active family of three who seeks God, joy, and love in all that we do and say. We were blessed to adopt our son in 2017 and are excited to grow our family once again through the joy of adoption.  We value relationships, health/fitness, and education. We laugh often and enjoy life. Thank you for taking the time to get to know a bit about us, we look forward to getting to know you as well.

About Us

We’ve been married for 8 years and are deeply committed to God, our marriage, family and friends. It has always been in our hearts to become parents however, after experiencing infertility, God led our hearts to adoption. In 2017, we were blessed with the adoption of our son Judah. He is almost 2 years old and an absolute joy! We love being active, going on adventures and spending time outdoors.  You can often find us biking, boating or playing around in the yard or lake. We look forward to growing our family once more through adoption and including our next child in all of our family fun.

About Victoria

Victoria is always thinking of others and passionate about health and fitness.  She motivates and encourages people to incorporate wellness into their lifestyle. Victoria has a warm heart and doesn’t hesitate to give her time and energy to those who are in need of support. She enjoys walking, running, biking, yoga and teaching group fitness classes.  She also loves trying new recipes, baking and recently picked up a new hobby with photography. She was formerly a 1st-grade teacher so she has an authentic love for children. It gives her so much joy being a stay-at-home mom and I know that she is excited to welcome another child into all of our family fun.

 

About Ben

Ben is friendly and kind to people from all walks of life.  He is encouraging and has a positive outlook on life. He also strives to know others on a deep level and seeks to understand who they are inside. Ben has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh all the time! He is a great dad who makes family time a priority. Ben loves spending time outdoors biking, boating, swimming, chatting around a bonfire and enjoying the sauna he recently built in our yard.  Most of all, he enjoys reading, playing and doing activities with our son. He’s looking forward to sharing our family activities with another child.

Our Home in Minnesota

We live in the land of 10,000 lakes and are fortunate to live on one of those lakes! We live in a 3 bedroom suburban home with an open layout on the main floor and a sunroom and enjoy every aspect of lake life. It’s so awesome to experience all 4 seasons as each one offers different outdoor activities that we enjoy. We live in a welcoming and fun neighborhood that fully supported us during our first adoption and continues to do so as we begin the journey again. There are many families with young kids as well as families with teenage and college-aged kids. We like to organize neighborhood gatherings at our place. Some of those gatherings include an annual triathlon, bonfires, picnics and boat rides.

Our Son and Family

Our son Judah is a social, happy and caring 2-year-old.  He joined our family through adoption in 2017 and has been such a blessing.  We have an open relationship with Judah’s birth parents and feel blessed that they are a part of our lives. Judah enjoys exploring new places, reading books, driving play vehicles and absolutely loves being around kids.  He will be a great big brother.

Some of our favorite family activities are biking, boating, going to the park and being outdoors. We look forward to having another child to create memories and share our family activities, but most of all, to share our love with. Both of our extended families are supportive and are excited to welcome your child into the family.

Our Promise

We promise to love and nurture your child in a stable home where we value faith, family, community, health/wellness, and education. We will provide opportunities to participate in various activities and experience different types of food, culture, and traditions around the world.  They will be raised in a Christian home where we have a strong faith in God. We will encourage them to do their best and support them as they grow and develop. We will be their biggest cheerleaders in life and we will love them unconditionally!

We trust God in the big and little things of life. Our strength comes from Him and we are grateful for the gifts that have been given to us. We attend weekly services at our local non-denominal church. The messages, worship, and ministries encourage us to live a Godly life filled with hope and love.
