Aaron grew up in a small town in northern California. Ana was born and raised in the heart of Romania.  In 2002, God brought us together from opposite sides of the world and we began working together at Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. In 2007, after a very long and hard adoption process, we joyously welcomed our precious daughter, Emma, into our lives.


God has called our family to help Romanian families discover the truth of His love and the joy of relationship with Him. We long to see the hearts of husbands and fathers turn towards their families, for wives and mothers to find their worth and value in Christ, for the abandoned children to be defended, protected and embraced, for Romania to rise up and be all God intended her to be!
