The Edwards Family
John and Dessa Edwards live in Martinez with their three boys, Noah (9), Lukas (6), and Hayes (4). John is an elementary school science teacher, and Dessa homeschools their sons. John and Dessa, married eleven years now, have known since they were dating that they would like to pursue adoption at some point. Three years ago their family began that journey by supporting local foster families, and eventually opening their own home to foster children. They are grateful for all that their season in foster care taught them, and the relationships they enjoy because of it. As the Lord often does, He is sending their family in a slightly different direction, and the Edwards are currently pursuing a domestic infant adoption. The boys are eager to embrace a new sibling (or two!), and John and Dessa are excited to expand their family. They look forward to sharing their hearts and home with a new little one, and to sharing with others how beautifully our Creator weaves our stories together.
