We met through a mutual friend in school who put us on the phone together. we still think she absolutely knew what she was doing when she did that! We became friends and talked all the time about everything! The crazy thing was that, at the time, we lived in two different states and never saw each other in person! We only talked on the phone. Well, some time later, Bridgette was talking about a bad experience she had with some guy she was talking to, and Jonathan said, “I’m going to come see you and show you that not all guys are bad.” True to his word, Jonathan drove seven hours to meet Bridgette in person and they started dating by that December. A few months later, in March, Jonathan proposed! In September we got married! We just told people, when you know you know and there is no reason for a long engagement! That was almost twelve years ago!
After the first year of marriage, we decided to start trying to get pregnant. After months and months of nothing, we decided to get some answers. Several doctors and fertility clinics later, we found out that Bridgette has a chromosomal problem which affects all of her hormones.
We started talking about adoption even when we were dating! Bridgette’s family is blessed by adoption and we’ve seen adoption up close. So, we always knew it was a path we wanted to pursue! Both of our families are very excited and open to any baby we bring into our family!
We are so incredibly excited about this journey and welcoming a sweet precious child into our family! We have so much love to give and so many family and friends that can’t wait to share the love as well!
Thank you so much for taking the time to hear our story! We would love for you to be a part of our journey!
