  Aaron and Jennifer Travis  were married in 1995 and have 5 children:  Emma, Eli, Leah, Kristen, and Biruk Abigail, who was born in the beautiful country of Ethiopia.  She came into our family through the miracle of adoption in 2011.  Since that time we have experienced many ups and downs, many challenges and some pretty significant victories, but know that we have a long way to go and are thankful for the support of ministries like Embrace.  Our desire is to come alongside other families who are on this crazy journey and be a support and encouragement to them.
