Josh and Sherry met for the first time in youth group and two years later they went on their first date. Josh was sure after that date that Sherry was the one for him; he was going to marry that girl! A year and a half later he took Sherry back to the same movie theater where they had their first date and used the big screen to propose to her. Sherry said yes and the two were married in 2005.
In 2010 they were blessed with their daughter Abigail. Two years following, their son Gabriel was born. It wasn’t long before they realized that their family wasn’t quite complete. They endured four miscarriages and lost their son Samuel when Sherry was 16 weeks pregnant. With each loss they became more certain that God was growing a baby in their hearts and knew that adoption was the right choice for their family. With two children eagerly awaiting a little brother or sister, Josh and Sherry took the first steps to expand their family through adoption!
Josh and Sherry love spending time with their family. Some of their favorite activities are taking family walks through the neighborhood and getting snow cones at the local shop. Together they like to visit the park, watch movies with popcorn, try out new restaurants, and have dance parties, despite not having the greatest of dance moves. They spend a lot of time with family and friends. Especially since Josh and Sherry’s families live nearby. It’s not uncommon to find them at a family lunch on Sundays after church. Summer evenings when it gets cool, Josh and Sherry love to take the kids fishing at the neighborhood pond. In the winter they love to make hot chocolate and snuggle up in their jammies!

We live in a family friendly neighborhood with a pool and a playground. The sidewalks are often full of families out in the evenings going for walks. We have a four-bedroom home with a room for each of the kids. We have two furry kids; Shy and Lola. They can usually be found napping with the kids or following them around the backyard while they play! We love our neighborhood pool and playground and our summer days in the backyard and at the pond.
