Help Support Johnny & Brittany's Adoption
Thank you for helping us grow our family through adoption!
We are Johnny and Brittany, a fun loving, responsible, and caring couple ready to grow our family. We met nearly ten years ago and instantly became friends. After going on many coffee dates, taking several walks through the park, and talking of our love for the Lord, we soon began dating. We fell in love and have been married 8 sweet years. Today, we still love coffee dates, holding hands on walks, and talking about our faith, all the while being way too silly and very much in love.
On one of our first dates, we talked about our individual hopes of having a big family someday and the possibility of growing our family through adoption. As newlyweds, we dreamed of a house full of children with lots of laughter, love, and silliness. This is still our dream. However, during the pregnancy with our first child, we soon realized there might be challenges we didn’t anticipate to make our dream a reality. We have two precious children, Noah and Olivia. We also have two babies in heaven that we lost through miscarriages. Both of Brittany’s pregnancies and deliveries were complicated with many life-threatening risks and the second delivery nearly took her life. Upon receiving direction from doctors, we knew that Brittany could not carry another child. Although these losses, trials, and challenges were the most difficult we have walked through, our love for one another and our faith in the Lord have grown tremendously. We have always known that we wanted a large family, we have always felt the Lord stirring our hearts to grow our family through adoption, and we believe this was just a confirmation that we can continue to trust the Lord’s timing to grow our family as He desires.
As a couple, we love spending time together even if we are simply eating a late dinner on the porch after we put the kids to bed or snuggling up on the couch while the kids play. Although we love spending quality time together, we are crazy about our family time. We love hopping in the car every few months to drive somewhere new with the kids. Making memories is something we value. On most days, we are swimming, swinging on the play set, painting with the kids, or enjoying a picnic in the yard under our big magnolia tree. Regardless of what we are doing, we are always being silly and enjoying each other’s company.
We are all very excited to welcome a third baby into our family. Our children know we are preparing our home for another baby, and their excitement to welcome another sibling brings us so much joy! We know that the Lord has our family, including our third child, in His hands as He writes our adoption journey.
