Joshua and Sarah Ladd were newlyweds when they moved to Minnesota from Ohio. The two were busy their first year looking for the right church with strong emotional and spiritual support. They decided on St. Andrew’s after connecting with Erin Morris, former Deacon and a member of their outreach team. St. Andrew’s has blessed the Ladds by walking with them as they prepared to become a forever family for their adopted sons Michael and Jacob. The church was also a critical support as they confronted the challenges of infertility. Now, our community celebrates God’s faithfulness as the Ladds welcomed the birth of their daughter Coraline earlier this year. When Joshua is not changing diapers, cooking, or playing Nintendo with the kids, he enjoys running, mountain biking, drawing, and theatre. In his professional time, he is a staff attorney with the Minnesota Disability Law Center. He represents children with special needs in disputes with their school district. He has a bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University and a joint degree in Law and Urban and Regional Planning from Michigan State University. They live in the vibrant west side neighborhood of St. Paul.
