John & Emily Hamann

December 2, 2023 | Birnamwood, WI

John and Emily have been married for 10 years. They live in the country in central Wisconsin on a small homestead. They adopted Charles in 2019 and he has a lot of energy. He loves tractors and construction trucks and even “helps” daddy with chores like mowing the lawn and splitting wood. We always felt adoption is a very special way God had planned for us to have children that mirrors His heart for orphans and the fatherless – we have been adopted into God’s family and we are adopting children into our family. Even if we were able to have children naturally, we probably still would have adopted.

Domestic Adoption | United States

In 2022 we began our second adoption journey. We are on three different waiting lists each in a different state: one in Florida, one in Indiana and one close to home in Green Bay, Wisconsin. We have been waiting for a year now and we know it takes at least two years to be matched. In the meantime we are raising funds so we will be ready when we do get matched.

Widow | Wisconsin

Some words from Jenna: My name is Jenna and I’m a mom to three wonderful kiddos, ages ten, eight, and six. Five years ago, my husband was diagnosed with a rare form of colon cancer, which had spread to his lymph nodes, liver, and bones. After a year of treatment with chemotherapy and radiation, his health declined and he succumbed to his illness in November of 2019.
The past five years have been incredibly challenging, but God is so good! I am able to stay home with my children and we’ve been a homeschool family since 2020. We enjoy cooking, baking, playing outside, camping, hiking, gardening, raising ducks, and learning about the wonderful world God has created. I am blessed to be able to look back over the past few years and marvel at what God has done in and through us!
