Josh & Jen Miltenberger

Ankeny, IA

Josh and Jen have been married for nearly 13 years. They live in Ankeny, Iowa and are members at First Family Church. They have two children, Kaylea (6) and Andrew (5). Josh and Jen's church taught through the book of James which commands believers to care for orphans and widows. As Jen and Josh considered how they would live out this command, adoption became part of God's plan for them. Lord willing, they will be bringing home a son or daughter from India in mid-late 2020.
