Dear Birth Parent,

Your life is going to be a testimony to others. It takes more courage to do what you’re doing than the other options out there. We love and respect you even though we haven’t met you. We have been praying for you and your unborn child and we know that God’s perfect plans will prevail. Rest assured in Him and His unfailing grace that is always sufficient for us all.

We met in 2005 and got married on March 7, 2008. Shandre is of East Indian descent, born and raised in South Africa. Gavin was born in Norfolk, VA and is American. As a couple, we’ve been through the highs and lows of life together, but have realized the importance of being content in all things. We are unable to have children biologically. We have had adoption on our hearts for years. We believe that we have all been adopted into the Kingdom of God, and really look forward to experiencing the privilege of adoption even more as we welcome a child into our home. We are members of a local church. Our church has several campuses and we attend the one in Norfolk. Shandre has led worship over the years and Gavin has done the sound. We also love travelling and since we’ve been married, we’ve been blessed, to visit 8 countries and numerous cities. 

Our families are also very involved in our lives. Gavin has a brother and a sister. Shandre has two sisters. Gavin’s family lives in Virginia Beach and Shandre’s family lives in Atlanta and Texas.  We have 3 nephews and 2 nieces. We also have several godchildren. We love the time we get to spend with them.

The faithfulness of Jesus Christ has sustained us over the years. He is a good God and we trust in His Holy Spirit to provide you with the perfect direction for your life and that of your baby’s also.

With Love,

Gavin & Shandrè
