We are Steve and Anna. We were "set up" by Steve's Aunt Leslie, and my (Anna's) cousin, Leslie. They were friends and thought we'd make a great match. We met in April 2009 at a Wednesday night church service. Steve asked for my phone number, and we went on our first date a few days later. We got married in May 2010 and have two daughters (7 and 4 years old). We also have a cat named Ashley.
We've always wanted to adopt a child. We live in St. Louis, MO, just a few miles from both of our families. Family time is very important to us. We go to church with Steve's family and have "Family Dinner" with Anna's family once a month. Our girl's grandparents are very involved and love spending time with their grandchildren.
We love doing things together as a family. The girls love going to neighborhood parks, the Zoo and the Magic House, and spending time with their cousins! Teaching our children about God and His love for us, as well as being kind and a friend to everyone is our top priority. We have been richly blessed, and want to share that blessing with others.
Our Message To You
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about our family. We want to thank you also, for choosing life for your child. There is no greater gift you could give. We don't know what you have gone through, but we want you to know that even though we've never met, we have been praying for you and the child you carry.
We love being parents and have always wanted to adopt. If we are blessed with a child in this adoption journey, we will love and care for them with all our heart. We have a very supportive family and group of friends that is gathered around us, holding us up. What a blessing! We wish you peace and in the upcoming days and weeks.
May the Lord bless you and guide your steps.
