A Letter from Harrell & Hope
We are a couple that loves to travel and puts God first in everything we do. We have always felt the calling to adopt, and when we found out we were unable to have children, we knew this was God’s plan for our life. We have so much love in our hearts that we want to pour into your child. Thank you for taking the time to read our letter and learn more about us.
We met online and dated for a year before we became engaged. Because of work and school schedules, we decided to have a small backyard wedding that we planned in only nine days using Pinterest as inspiration! Let’s just say, Pinterest is now banned in our home…LOL
We love to find new places to explore and enjoy things like hiking in the mountains or lounging around at the beach. Disneyland is also definitely on our list!
We love animals and have 4 dogs, 1 cat, and a turtle…and we spoil all of them! Our dogs are well behaved and love children. Our dog Maya is a certified service dog and visits patients at our local hospital.
We are excited to watch your child grow into the person that God has created them to be and share with them our love to explore.
Hope is a wonderful woman who loves very deeply. She excels at everything she puts her mind to and has such a strong drive, it is hard to not feel motivated around her. Hope leads by example every day. On warm days she loves to go outside, enjoy nature and work in the yard. When it’s colder out she loves to curl up with a blanket and read a good book. She loves taking pictures of the beautiful sunsets around our home. She is looking forward to teaching your child how to love big and to know that they have a purpose in life. She will always be their number one fan in everything that they do and looks forward to reading bedtime stories and cuddling.
Harrell is one of the smartest people I know. He is caring and always makes it a point to place others before himself. He loves to cook and, being from a Japanese family, he has quite the arsenal of recipes on hand at all times! Harrell also loves to build things and is able to fix anything he puts his mind to. He is a quick study and it doesn’t take him long at all to know what to do! He can often be found in the garage working on his cars. He takes pride in being able to work with and create with his hands. Harrell is excited to welcome your child home and share with them all his building and crafting knowledge.
Both of our families are fairly large, energetic and loving. We spend a lot of time together, and they are our biggest support system. We often take turns having cookouts at each other’s houses, where we all play games, catch up and have fun! We have several nieces and nephews and, during the summers, everyone is busy going to all of their summers events and cheering them on! Our family looks forward to continuing this with your own child and cheer them on in all that they do!
We are truly blessed with our house. It is a cozy 4 bedroom home with a large, fenced back yard, where your child will have plenty of room to run and play. Our open floor plan allows us to always be together in the home. Our home is filled with laughter, homemade meals and plenty of time with our pets. Harrell recently built a shed in the backyard that is heated so our dogs can stay warm and cozy when they are outside.
Our home is located near a wonderful elementary school and a lovely park that we enjoy walking the dogs through. Our neighborhood is a great place to raise a family and we open see kids playing and riding bikes on our street.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and to give them a home full of fun and laughter. Your child will be taught about God and will be cherished always. They will also be taught about respect and love for others. We will always be there for them and will teach them the importance of a family bond. They will go traveling where they will be able to experience new places and new things. We promise you that your child will know their story and that we will support them and their dreams.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love to spend time with our families. During the Christmas season, we load up our nieces and nephews and take them to look at Christmas lights. We also love to travel! During the summers we load up the trailer with all the dogs and stay at the lake or go to state parks. There, we bask in the sun and soak up all the beauty. We have a love for children and are currently fostering.
Our faith is the most important thing to us. God comes first in our marriage because without him we would be nothing. He took two people, who have walked similar paths in life, and put them together. We both knew we were called to adopt before we ever knew each other and before we both knew we were unable to have children. We cannot begin to explain how much he has blessed us! He has provided so much for us, and everything he has given us we try to give back to him. When God blesses us with a child, we will raise that child to know, love, and serve Him.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love everything from country, rock, praise, and worship, and Harrell loves The Bobby Bones Show
