Brian and Julia Cook have called Augusta home for the past 5 years. They met in college and then both came to Augusta University to pursue their Doctorate of Physical Therapy degrees. Brian and Julia married during PT school, and just celebrated 5 years as husband and wife. Brian works in orthopedics at Benchmark Physical Therapy, and Julia works in pediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Georgia. They are members of First Presbyterian Church, and are passionate about reaching medical students with the good news of Jesus through Medical Campus Outreach. Adoption was a desire in both their hearts early in marriage, and the Lord has led them to domestic adoption as the means through which they will grow their family. Brian and Julia are so excited to see how the Lord will work to bring a baby into their home, and thrilled to be a Trot to Adopt Family!
