High school sweethearts, we were married in 2014 and live in the St. Louis area near our families. Abbi is a music teacher and orchestra director and performs in our community orchestra. Phillip is a software engineer. He has worked in both the aerospace and finance industries.
Family is a large part of our lives. Abbi is the oldest of three and Phillip is the youngest of four with eleven nieces and nephews that we try to spend as much time with as possible. Whether it’s picking up Abbi’s grandparents to bring to church each Sunday, having her siblings calling throughout the week to talk about life, or gathering at the beach on vacation with Phillip’s family, connection with family is ingrained throughout our life. We also are part of a close knit church family and are involved in many volunteer activities at our church. We both at various times have felt called to serve that community on the church leadership team.
One of our favorite things to do is host friends and family at our home: whether for game night, celebrations, or even just dinner. We also enjoy participating in community events, going to concerts, and exploring museums. Our love of nature leads us outdoors, whether on vacation or just at local parks for hikes. On a nice evening, you can probably find Phillip outside working in the backyard garden or dreaming up new ideas about what to plant and Abbi out with him reading or crafting.
Our Message To You
We both feel that the Lord has laid adoption on our hearts. Since the day we were married, we both knew that one day our family would grow through adoption. We do not yet have children, and we feel that God has called us to adoption at this time. We cannot pretend to fully know or understand all that you are thinking and feeling. All we know is that we are grateful you are considering us and that, if you choose us to raise your child, they will live in a household full of love and laughter.
