Profile: Brad and Heather
“Adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness.”
"We are grateful that you love your unborn child enough to consider an adoption plan for him or hear. Adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We can assure you if we have the honor to raise this blessed person you are bringing into this world, we will do our utmost to make sure they are happy and taken care of.
Our faith has led us down this path; teaching us that it is not what we can’t accomplish in life but what can be accomplished through God, who is our strength (Philippians 4:13)."
Meet Brad and Heather
“We are Heather and Brad and have been happily married for 7 years. We met online 10 years ago and became best friends, as we enjoy doing some of the same things. Our relationship with each other and our faith in God have allowed us to travel through life together weathering all the storms that have come our way and made us stronger.”
Heather is a science teacher and spend her life cultivating kids and helping them reach their potential. These years of teaching have taught her to be patient, kind and that each child much be treated as an individual. Heather has her Bachelors in math and science education, and her master’s in special education K-12.
Brad is a golf course superintendent for a Country Club in our area. Since graduating with two degrees in horticulture and surf turf management, he has continued to do what he loves working outside in nature and watching his designs and ideas come to life to be enjoyed by the community.
Both of us were blessed to have loving parents, family, and friends that helped us navigate our lives. With their guidance we have been able to conquer the hardships that have confronted us and cultivate the loving relationship we have now. Without the love and encouragement of all these people we would not be where we are today.
