A Letter from Paul & Beth

Hi! We believe we are called to be parents, and we are so excited about welcoming a child into our home and our hearts. Experience with loss has taught us to value what is important in life – helping others is a top priority.

Most importantly, we want to share our love for faith and our values, with the end goal of giving another person everything they need to live out their potential and weather the storms of life. We are young, active, and want to share our love of being outdoors hiking and camping, travel, and our love of learning.

We’d love to talk or answer any of your questions. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
