Adventurous Adoptive Couple from Wisconsin on Video!

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on June 3, 2017

joe and shanna.jpgJoe and Shanna are an adventurous Christian couple from Wisconsin who created a cute video to introduce themselves! They love going on road trips, camping, hiking, and taking their dog for walks.  Joe and Shanna can't wait to welcome a little one of any race into their home to share their passions.

Shanna will be a stay-at-home mom, and they're prepared to provide everything a child needs to flourish! After years of infertility followed by a late miscarriage, they feel that the Lord is calling them to adoption. 

Joe shares about his wife, "Shanna has a huge heart and is especially caring and nurturing with children. I’ve seen this whenever she’s around our friends’ kids, our nieces, and nephews. She’s always there for anyone who needs her and truly has a servant’s heart.

Previously, Shanna worked as a licensed clinical social worker but recently started a pastoral internship through the Vineyard Church that we attend. She plays guitar and used to play the piano and flute as well. Shanna is an amazing cook and views it as her creative outlet. She also loves creating things with essential oils and makes her own chemical-free laundry detergent! I’m excited to see Shanna thrive in her role as a stay-at-home mom!"

Shanna has this to say about her husband: "Joe is a sweet gentleman who is fiercely loyal and hardworking. He’s always responsive when I express a need, and I know he’ll be an involved and present dad. He makes his family and close friends a priority in his life.

He enjoys grilling and having people over for bonfires during the summer. He’s an amazing musician and can play about a dozen instruments! Joe is a kid at heart; you can find him building LEGO kits, and he loves everything Star Wars. I have no doubt that he’ll be on the floor playing with our little one, teaching him or her in a hands-on way and answering all the questions that go on in a child’s head!"
