Meet Ben & Stacey H.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking a moment to meet our loving, energetic tribe! We would love the opportunity to get to know you and learn more about you and your goals. We hope that we can be both a blessing and an option that gives you comfort. Our arms are open wide to both you and your baby. Whatever path you choose, you will always be held with the highest respect in our hearts and home. We pray you will find peace and confidence in the choices you are making for your precious child.

Ben and Stacey met at church in high school and dated through college. Ben works in the tech industry and is a leader of software engineers for a large investment company. He has enjoyed working from home for the past five years. A former pastry chef, Stacey is now a stay at home mom, always ready with an encouraging word, a hug, and fresh, homemade food.  Our children always have at least one parent available and we regularly carve out individual time with each of them. We celebrate and support each other. In our family, your child will have their very own fan club that will always have their back!

A lovely family for your child

We always knew we wanted adoption to be a part of our story. After two biological children, we decided it was time to start our adoption journey.  After a few months, we were greatly blessed to have a little girl and her baby brother join our family.  Our children are so very close and one of the greatest blessings of our lives has been watching all four of them grow together.

About Stacey (by Ben) Stacey’s passion in life is caring for and comforting those who cross our paths. She is fiercely loyal and full of amazing empathy. She fills her extra time volunteering with a local refugee tutoring program teaching and cooking. She organizes meals for those needing them in our church, always ready to provide one herself. When she is relaxing, it’s reading to one of the kids, painting a watercolor, doing yoga or playing with the dogs. It isn’t overstating facts to say that Stacey is perfectly suited to motherhood pouring out love and helping our children to grow and shine in their unique talents and gifts.

A loving adoptive family

About Ben (by Stacey) Ben is completely devoted as a husband and father. In his career, he thrives on problem solving and constantly improving, and also uses these traits to help in our home. He enjoys unwinding by taking a run or playing disc golf or adventuring and traveling with the family. At home, work, or church, his strong leadership skills are admired and utilized. He is very inquisitive and loves to learn about new things with the kids. Over our marriage I have seen him explore hundreds of interests, from beekeeping to coffee roasting to coaching! I know he will try many more roles, but he will always be best as “Husband” and “Dad.”

Good family ready to adopt

Our Community We live south of Dayton, Ohio in a beautiful, large home, situated on a private cul-de-sac with tall trees and friendly neighbors. We have worked to develop a strong and supportive community around our children. Our warm home is always open to all and regularly filled with holiday celebrations, grandparent visits, youth group activities, and cookouts with friends. Our children enjoy attending a large, diverse, Christian private school. We belong to a church that is a group of warm and welcoming people that truly feels like a family.

We’re excited to share this beautiful life with another child!

Sincerely,
Ben & Stacey
